X-ES launches COTS XMC modules designed using Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA
Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) has launched COTS XPedite2470 3U VPX and XPedite2400 XMC modules designed using Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA chips for applications requiring RF signal acquisition, SDR, and DSP requirements.
These modules supports VITA 49 VITA Radio Transport (VRT) protocol for formatting the data of a digitized IF stream. VRT support helps in interoperability and the data can be carried over commonly used industry-standard protocols, such as Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, PCI Express, Aurora, Serial RapidIO (SRIO), and Serial Front Panel Data Port (S-FPDP).
X-ES is offering FPGA Development Kit (FDK) utilizing industry-standard AXI4 interface protocol, which also include IP blocks, example designs, and software to control and communicate with the FPGAs. A Software Development Kit (SDK) is also provided and includes interface drivers, support utilities, and user APIs. The SDK is supported for Linux and VxWorks, running on either an Intel or Freescale host.
The XPedite2470 is a configurable, 3U VPX-REDI, FGPA-processing module that provides eleven high-speed GTX lanes to the backplane and eight high-speed GTX lanes to an on-card FMC site. The XPedite2470ís FMC site provides I/O expansion capabilities, allowing access to single-ended or differential I/O, configurable GTX transceivers, and high-frequency Digital-to-Analog Conversion (DAC) or Analog-to-Digital Conversion (ADC). The XPedite2470 includes a Freescale P1010 QorIQ processor for additional signal-processing or general-purpose capabilities.
The compact XPedite2400 is an FPGA-based XMC module that includes a high-speed DAC, 2 GB of DDR3 SDRAM, a Gen3 PCI Express interface, and up to ten high-throughput GTX lanes. The module's integrated DAC supports a 14-bit resolution and a sample rate of up to a 2.5 giga-samples-per-second. The analog interface can be accessed via MMCX connectors from the front panel. The XPedite2400 supports 32 LVDS signals through its P14 connector for additional connectivity.
X-ES says XPedite7472 and XPedite7302 XMC is ideal solutions for programs with stringent Anti-Tamper (AT) or Information Assurance (IA) requirements.
The configurable XPedite2470 and XPedite2400 modules can be built to support the 330T, 415T, 485T, or 690T Virtex-7 FPGAs.
