SDRstick_48x48 SDRstickTM HSMCMEC-AD1 HSMC-to-MEC Adapter


The HSMCMEC-AD1 adapter allows the SDRstickTM UDPSDR-HF1 and UDPSDR-HF2 receiver front-ends and the UDPSDR-TX2 transmitter to be used on any High Speed Mezzanine Connector (HSMC) port. Initially targeting the Arrow SoCkit Cyclone V SoC Development Kit and the Altera Cyclone V SX SoC Development Board, the AD1 can be used on any development board that has an available HSMC connector.
