User-configurable Virtex-5 FPGA with 94,208 Logic Cells

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Acromag


Description :

Acromag's PMC-VSX boards feature a reconfigurable Xilinx® Virtex™-5 FPGA enhanced with multiple high-speed memory buffers and a high-throughput PCI-X 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.

The on-board FPGA is a DSP-optimized version of the Virtex-5 FPGA. Although there is no limit to the uses for these boards, several applications are ideal. Typical uses include hardware simulation, communications, military servers, in-circuit diagnostics, signal intelligence, and image processing.

64 I/O lines are provided via 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 offer an 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 PCI-X interface ensures fast data throughput.

Take advantage of conduction cooling for use in hostile environments. Conduction efficiently dissipates heat in environments with inadequate cooling air flow. Optional extended temperature models operate from -40 to 85°C.
