SIS8300-KU MTCA.4 Digitizer

10 Channel 125 MS/s 16-bit With Fast Feedback DACs

Limited availability 4th quarter of 2016

Based on the SIS8300 which was developed in co-operation with DESY under ZIM Förderkennzeichen 2460101MS9

The SIS8300-KU is the Kintex Ultrascale based follow up to the SIS8300-L2 MTCA.4 digitizer card. One of the development goals is to give firmware developers the freedom the use the Xilinx Vivado development tool chain.
