Data Acquistion and Processing using Beagle Board


I am Mohit from Technid Solutions, India.

I want to use a 40 Mbps ADC to be interfaced with Beagle Board - XM.
The signal be further used for calculating fast fourier transform of
the signal and then for Principal Component Analysis.

Please advice if such high speed ADC interfacing is possible or not.

Thanks a lot, Regards...

Hi Mohit,

You are very close to the maximum speed of the McBSP
but with a well tuned driver it should be possible. But please calculate the timing of the FFT carefully - you might be very
close to the limits there as well. Using the DSP might be a fine solution here.
