Serial FPDP XMC and Compact PCI modules introduced by Pentek for radar processing and signals intelligence

UPPER SADDLE RIVER, N.J., 17 April 2012. Pentek Inc. in Upper Saddle River, N.J., is introducing two quad Serial Front Panel Data Port (FPDP) high-speed data communications modules featuring the Xilinx Virtex-6 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for military embedded systems such as military radar signal processing and signals intelligence.

The 71611 Express Mezzanine Card (XMC) and the 7811 native PCI Express card Serial FPDP modules provide four channels of serial communication with aggregate data transfer capability of as much as one gigabyte per second.

These embedded computing modules are for applications that must deliver high-speed data between systems or from sensors to a data acquisition system over extended distances. A user-configurable Virtex-6 FPGA enables systems designers to extend the factory installed Serial FPDP functions for custom signal processing of inbound and outbound data streams.

The 71611 can be installed on any XMC carrier in VPX, PCI Express, and CompactPCI embedded computing systems. The 71611 has two gigabytes of DDR3 SDRAM for FIFO memory buffering of DMA packets and an optional PMC P14 connector for custom I/O through 20 pairs of LVDS connections to the FPGA. The 7811 native PCI Express card can be installed on any motherboard with PCI Express card slots.

Both modules support Gen2 PCI Express and offer a range of Virtex-6 devices so developers can add additional FPGA IP to match custom processing requirements. The Virtex-6 is for modulation/demodulation, encoding/decoding, encryption/decryption and channelization of signals for transmission and reception.

The Models 71611 and 7811 are compatible with the VITA 17.1 Serial FPDP specification in all modes, and support 1.0625, 2.125 and 2.5-gigabaud rates and options for multi-mode and single-mode optical interfaces.
