Data converter module designed for signal processing applications

 

Pentek has introduced the newest member of the Jade family of high performance data converter XMC modules based on the Xilinx Kintex Ultrascale FPGA. The Model 71800 is a co-processor module with an XMC PCI Express Gen 3 interface and general purpose I/O using parallel LVDS and gigabit serial ports.

The Jade Architecture embodies a streamlined approach to FPGA based boards, simplifying the design to reduce power and cost, while still providing some of the highest performance FPGA resources available today.

Designed to work with Pentek’s Navigator Design Suite of tools, the combination of Jade and Navigator offers users an efficient path to developing and deploying FPGA IP for data and signal processing.

The Model 71800 is pre-loaded with IP modules for DMA engines, a DDR4 memory controller, test signal and metadata generators, data packing and flow control to speed up the development process.

The 71800 is available with the Kintex UltraScale KU035, KU060 and KU115, supporting a range of processing power. The majority of the Kintex UltraScale FPGA resources are available for customer installed IP for processing and management of I/O.

Performance IP cores
"Designers who need to boost DSP processing for an existing system, or wish to develop their own new IP application, can take good advantage of the Model 71800. Not only does it offer up to 5520 DSP slices for plenty of processing horsepower, it also provides well-defined connections to PCIe, DDR4 memory, LVDS I/O and gigabit serial links to support high performance interfaces," said Bob Sgandurra, Director of Product Management of Pentek.

"Advancements in our Navigator tools now make it much easier to integrate custom IP with modules from the Pentek library to develop solutions for very specific needs. A designer’s imagination is the only limitation to the capabilities of this module.”
