FPGA Mezzanine Carriers are based on Xilinx FPGAs


Based on Xilinx All Programmable FPGAs, VadaTech announces a full suite of Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) modules. These single-width AMCs are available in versions that include Virtex-5, Virtex-6, Artix-7, Kintex-7 and Virtex-7 FPGAs, as well as Zynq All Programmable SoCs, from Xilinx.

The Virtex-7 device was also selected for a 100G Processor with an integrated FPGA in the double-module AMC size. The broad offering allows engineers to choose the price/performance level that best matches their application. The FPGA Carriers allow any VITA-57 complaint FMC mezzanines to be plugged in, providing a wealth of I/O options.

The FPGA carrier modules include DDR3 memory, allowing large buffer sizes and queueing during processing. The Virtex and Kintex versions also have optional local processors that provide more reliability, performance and eliminate a potential single-point-of-failure in the system.

Sanjay Gehani, Senior Manager, Partnerships for Smarter Vision, Xilinx, commented: "The release by VadaTech of this suite of FPGA Mezzanine Carriers illustrates the diversity and flexibility of the Xilinx All Programmable FPGA family. The VadaTech modules offer cost effective and accessible performance at every level. VadaTech is offering designers solutions that are a generation ahead in terms of price, performance and power consumption."
