Alpha Data is proud to announce the release of a new line of VPX products featuring the ADM-VPX3-7V2, a high-performance reconfigurable, 3U OpenVPX format based on the Xilinx Virtex-7 range of Platform FPGAs.
3U VPX cards offer an ultra-rugged and compact form factor loaded with IO that can operate at 10Gbps+. Most importantly, VPX utilizes a standardized control and data flow architecture supported by vendors around the world letting the designer utilize every square inch of the latest and largest FPGAs on the market.

Combining the performance, ease-of-use, and reliability of the 7V2 with OpenVPX interoperability, system integrators will find they can create compact, cost effective, ultra-rugged solutions, for a plethora of challenging applications. Alpha Data's COTS VPX boards are ready to design, develop, and deploy.

The ADM-VPX3-7V2 features include a built-in PCI Express Gen2 interface with DMA, optional PCIe Gen3 interface to the user FPGA, external memory, high-density I/O using a Vita 57 high Pin Count FMC interface, Gigabit Ethernet Interface, system monitoring, and flash boot facilities. A Rear Transition Module (RTM) is also available to accelerate development by providing monitor and control access to all rear (backplane) IO signals.

In addition to the ADM-VPX3-7V2, Alpha Data offers three ready-made VPX solutions that are two-part assemblies comprised of a 3U VPX carrier card and a modular XMC FPGA mezzanine card. The ADA-VPX3-7V1, the ADA-VPX3-7K1, and the ADA-VPX3-6T1 feature XRM front IO adapters, two mSATA sites and 1000Base-x ethernet.

VPX is the future of rugged embedded computing; these switched serial systems unleash the incredible bandwidth of the latest generation Virtex-7 FPGAs. Alpha Data's lineup of OpenVPX products allows engineers to quickly design new applications using off-the-shelf hardware and deploy on the same hardware with full ruggedized support.
