Alpha Data releases Xilinx Virtex-7 based FPGA card for OpenVPX Systems
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 V
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. Adam Smith, CEO.
