Highspeed AD/DA GPIO Card


  • Double the channel
  • Double the power
  • In an unbelievable compact size

The THDB_ADA (ADA) daughter board is designed to provide DSP solution on DE series and Cyclone III Starter Kit, or other boards with HSMC or GPIO interface.


  • Dual AD channels with 14-bit resolution and data rate up to 65 MSPS
  • Dual DA channels with 14-bit resolution and data rate up to 125 MSPS
  • Dual interfaces include HSMC and GPIO, which are fully compatible with Cyclone III Starter Kit and DE0/DE1/DE2/DE3 etc, respectively
  • Clock sources include oscillator 100MHz, SMA for AD and DA each, and PLL from either HSMC or GPIO interface
  • Size:90.3*78.2 mm


  • Low cost oscilloscope and pattern generator
  • Communication Transceiver
  • Digital Signal Processing
  • Platform for various modulation techniques


There will be two models available, ADA-GPIO and ADA-HSMC, which offer the compatibility of connecting the THDB_ADA (ADA) kit to DE2-115/DE4/DE3/DE2/DE1/DE0 and Cyclone III Starter Kit, respectively.

 ADA-GPIO Connectivity

  • Connect ADA-GPIO with DE2-70

 ADA-HSMC Connectivity

  • Connect ADA-HSMC with Cyclone III Starter Kit

  • Connect ADA-HSMC with DE3
    Note. An adapter (SFF or HFF) is required to connect ADA-HSMC with DE3. It is bundled in DE3 kit.

  • Connect ADA-HSMC with DE4
    Note. An adapter (HMF2) is required to connect ADA-HSMC with DE4. It is bundled in DE4 kit.

  • Connect ADA-HSMC with DE2-115
