3U VPX Virtex-6 FPGA Processing Board

altThe Systems division of Elma Electronic Inc. (Fremont, CA) now offers the TIC-FEP-VPX3b, an FPGA-based 3U VPX front-end processing board that provides an FMC site coupled to a large capacity Virtex-6 FPGA for flexible I/O. Featuring an onboard Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA, the board comes with two banks of 40-bit 1.25 GB DDR3 memory with transfer rates of 7.5 Gbps and a Spartan-6 control node, used to load logic images into the main FPGA. The Spartan-6 control node enables ‘on the fly’ bitstream management for dynamic FPGA configuration. Other resources include zero bus turnaround (ZBT) SRAM with a throughput of 400 MB/sec for expedited read/write processing. Built to the VPX specifications, the TIC-FEP-VPX3b includes four 4-lane fabric ports on the P1, connected by GTX transceivers to the main FPGA. The four fat pipe channels provide the PCIe x4 and GbE interfaces as well as two x4 expansion ports.
