VadaTech has released three new FMC carrier boards in different MOSA (Modular Open System Architecture) form factors, all featuring the Xilinx Virtex-7 690T, for applications with advanced data acquisition and digital signal processing requirements:
- The PCI516 is a PCI Express (PCIe) add-in card
- The VPX516 is a 3U VPX board
- The AMC516 is an AdvancedMC (AMC) module
Paired with VadaTech's 25 FMCs, these carriers are an ideal solution for radar processing, SIGINT/EW, and command and control applications as it's easy to integrate I/O cards with A/D, D/A, networking capabilities and more. MOSA platforms also enable integration of proprietary FMC I/O and reduce the development time for technology refresh or new deployments.
These new boards are optimized for the implementation of complex FPGA algorithms with high throughput requirements. The wide memory channels supporting the FPGA allow for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing as well as for queuing the data to the host.
The MOSA FPGA carriers are available in a range of temperature and shock/vibration specifications. VadaTech also provides BSP support and example code to support your system integration.
Paul Kuepfer, Sales and Marketing Vice President, VadaTech, said: "While VadaTech is fully committed to providing MicroTCA and PCI Express product into commercial, research and defense applications, we recognize that for some customers - especially those with military and aerospace applications - VPX is a corporate mandate for deployed systems. By providing designs in PCIe, AMC and VPX, we will offer a straight-forward migration route between the standards. Design re-use across the form factors will allow us to amortize development over larger volumes than other defense-centric COTS providers."
