SIS8300-L MTCA.4 Digitizer

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

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

The SIS8300-L was the Virtex®-6 based follow up to the SIS8300 MTCA.4 (µTCA for Physics) digitizer card, which was superseded by the SIS8300-L2 card in the meanwhile.
