VMETRO™ (Houston, TX) and Impulse Accelerated Technologies, Inc. (Houston, TX) have announced the V5+C, an advanced platform for rapid prototyping and algorithm development. The DSP development kit, which includes the latest generation Impulse C-to- VHDL compiler tools and a VMETRO PMC module based on the Xilinx® Virtex™-5 FPGA, allows military and industrial system developers to hardware- accelerate DSP algorithms and quickly prototype on FPGA within an ANSI C environment.

The PMC-FPGA05 was designed for embedded DSP applications where there is a need for flexible, customizable I/O and FPGA processing on the data stream. There are a number of I/O adapter modules available from VMETRO that can be plugged onto the PMC-FPGA05 including a dual channel 105MSPS, 14-bit ADC; a dual channel 210MSPS, 14-bit DAC; an FPDP-II interface; a 33 channel RS485/422 interface; a Camera Link interface; an L-Band receiver; and two different LVDS interfaces. The V5+1 kit includes the PMCFPGA05 on a PCI-X carrier card, and the Impulse C tools with a Platform Support Package.
