User-configurable Virtex-5 FPGA, 85k Logic Cells

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Acromag


Description :

Acromag's XMC-VLX mezzanine modules feature a configurable Xilinx® Virtex™-5 FPGA enhanced with multiple high-speed memory buffers and a high-throughput PCIe interface. Field I/O interfaces to the FPGA via the rear J4/P4 connector and/or with optional front mezzanine plug-in I/O modules. The result is a powerful and flexible I/O processor module that is capable of executing your custom instruction sets and algorithms.

Three models provide a choice of logic-optimized FPGAs to match your performance requirements. Although there is no limit to the uses for these boards, several applications are ideal. Typical uses include hardware simulation, military servers, communications, in-circuit diagnostics, signal intelligence, and image processing.

64 I/O lines are accessible through the rear (J4) connector. Additional I/O processing is supported on a separate mezzanine card that plugs into the FPGA base board. A variety of these external I/O cards are available to interface for your analog and digital I/O signals.

Large, high-speed memory banks provide efficient data handling. Generous DDR2 SDRAM buffers store captured data prior to FPGA processing. Afterward, data is moved to dual-port SRAM for high-speed DMA transfer to the bus or CPU. Our high-bandwidth PCIe interface ensures fast data throughput.

Take advantage of the conduction-cooled design for use in hostile environments. Conduction efficiently dissipates heat if there is inadequate cooling air flow. Optional extended temperature models operate reliably from -40 to 85°C.
