XMC Module with user-configurable Virtex-6 FPGA, 365k logic cells, no front

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Acromag


Description :

Acromag's XMC-6VLX modules feature a high performance user-configurable Xilinx® Virtex®-6 FPGA enhanced with high-speed memory and a high-throughput serial interface. The result is a powerful and flexible I/O processor module that is capable of executing custom instruction sets and algorithms.

The logic-optimized FPGA is well-suited for a broad range of applications. Typical uses include hardware simulation, communications, in-circuit diagnostics, military servers, signal intelligence, and image processing

Two Versions: Rear I/O or Front + Rear

Two versions of this module are available, each offering a choice of an FPGA device with 240k or 365k logic cells. One version provides only rear I/O for use in air or conduction-cooled systems. The other version adds two SFP ports and a 36-pin connector on the front but only supports air-cooled systems.

On all versions, the rear I/O provides an 8-lane high-speed serial interfaces on both the P15 and P16 XMC ports for PCI Express, Serial RapidIO, 10-Gigabit Ethernet, or Xilinx Aurora implementation. P16 also supports 34 SelectIO channels. The P4 port adds another 60 SelectIO and global clock lines. SelectI/O signals are Virtex-6 FPGA I/O pins that support single-ended I/O (LVCMOS, HSTL, SSTL) and differential I/O standards (LVDS, HT, LVPECL, BLVDS, HSTL, SSTL).

Models with front I/O add dual SFP ports and a VHDCR connector. The two SFP ports each provide a copper or fibre interface of up to 2.5Gbps. They also support a Gigabit Ethernet interface. The VHDCR connector interfaces JTAG, USB, and 22 SelectIO.

With Acromag's Virtex-6 FPGA modules, you can greatly increase DSP algorithm performance for faster throughput using multiple channels and parallel hardware architectures. Free up DSP processor CPU cycles by offloading algorithmic intensive tasks to the FPGA co-processor.

These modules are ideal for high-performance customized embedded systems. Optimize your system performance by integrating high speed programmable logic with the flexibility of software running on Micro Blaze™ soft processors. Acromag's Engineering Design Kit provides software utilities and example VHDL code to simplify your program development and get you running quickly. A JTAG interface enables on-board VHDL debugging. Additional Xilinx tools help finish your system faster. Maximize FPGA performance with ISE® Design Suite. And with Chip Scope™ Pro tools, you can rapidly debug logic and serial interfaces.
