DS8VM1 MTCA.4 Direct Sampling/Vector Modulator RTM

The DS8VM1 is an eight channel direct sampling/one channel vector modulator MTCA.4 RTM that was developed at DESY and is build by Struck under license of DESY.

The card can be used with DESY's DAMC-DS800, the 125 MSPS 16-bit SIS8300-L2/SIS8300-KU and the 250 MSPS 16-bit SIS8325 digitizer AMCs. vertical bar
