P-mod Solutions

Prototyping development PCB
Wavemaker Technology Ltd offer a wide range of P-mod development PCBs and RTL VHDL source code for quick integration into a wide range of Xilinx FPGA device which plug directly into development module like the Digilant Basys3 or Xilinx Spartan SP701 and Zynq UltraScale ES1.

GaN FET Half bridge
A single 3V3 logic input controls a half bridge configuration of two EPC2021 Gallium Nitride FETs. The Pmod PCB incorporates integral GaN drivers and high side power supply. Suitable for prototyping audio class D amplifiers or power supply switchers.

Audio A2D
A Texas Instruments PCM1804 audio analog to digital converter integrated with single ended to differential operational amplifier input buffer. This Pmod is setup to give 24 bit data quality of a four times over sampled audio signal for left and right channels. All converter parameters are selectable as is the interfacing configuration which can be set to I2C or DSP mode.

All pmod devices are £100
Price includes full documentation, VHDL source code and PCB schematics.

The equations
P(dBm) = 10 log10 P(mW)

P(mW) =10^(P(dBm)/10)
P(mW) = ( VRMS ) ^2 * 10 ^3 /R
VRMS(V) = Sqrt ( P(mW) * R /10^3)
Vp(V) = Sqrt (2) * VRMS
