Frequently Asked Questions
Integrated data converter technology combines the functionality of an analog data converter (ADC/DAC) with an ideally matched FPGA fabric by leveraging Intel EMIB technology to provide a programmable solution with RF-analog capabilities. This integration eliminates the JESD204 interface and helps reduce system power, reduces analog components resulting in smaller system footprint and reduced complexity.
Direct RF sampling is the capability to digitize analog data directly at RF to move the data to the FPGA fabric for processing in the digital domain. Intel® FPGA with integrated analog data converter technology removes the need to implement RF to IF translation and absorbs the analog portion of the solution thus providing RF baseband.
Advances in packaging technologies now make it possible to build complex systems in single package comprised of multi-function and multi-technology chiplets. With innovations in packaging technologies, designers can integrate their systems in a single package with chiplets that optimize specific functions using the process technology of choice. Emerging system requirements demand very high interconnect bandwidth with minimal interface power/bit. Intel provides the two key elements to make this possible—ultra-short-reach interface standard and integration packaging technology.
