VadaTech announces a rugged, high speed DSP unit utilising Xilinx VU13P with Integrated Layer 3 Managed Switch
VadaTech have announced the VT971. The VT971 is a rugged conduction cooled unit which follows VITA 47 for environmental up to CC4/C3/V3/OS2. The unit accepts 32 high-speed SERDES to the Xilinx XCVU13P FPGA, which is supported by two 64-bit wide banks for DDR4 memory for the total of 16GB of memory. The FPGA is integrated with a Layer 3 Managed Gbe/10GbE Ethernet Switch, providing 26 Egress port via front of the unit. The module supports 24 GbE through RJ-45 (10/100/1,000Base-T) and dual 10GbE via SFP+.
The VT971 has a quad core ARM processor utilising four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.4GHz. The CPU manages the layer three switch and interfaces to the FPGA via PCIe. The VT971 is well suited for applications where signals are digitised at a remote location and processed at a different site. The unit is available in conduction cooled form only and operates with input power of 10-36VDC.
