DSP boards in 3U VPX and XMC introduced by 4DSP for EW, radar, and sonar processing

AUSTIN, Texas, 25 Jan. 2013. 4DSP LLC in Austin, Texas, is introducing two digital signal processing (DSP) embedded computing boards based on the Xilinx Virtex-7 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for military embedded systems like software defined radios (SDRs), radar and sonar processing, image processing, satellite communication systems, electronic warfare, and baseband communication transceivers.

The 4DSP The FM780 is an Express Mezzanine Card (XMC) with a PCI Express Gen 2 interconnect, and the VP780 is 3U VPX board. Both boards are available as conduction cooled modules. The VP780 and FM780 are available in operating temperature ranges of 0 70 degrees Celsius or -40 85 C with optional conformal coating.

Both modules provide an FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) site and two 4DSP Board Level Application Scalable Technology (BLAST) locations closely coupled to the onboard Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA and 2 gigabytes of DDR3 SDRAM solid-state memory.

The Virtex-7 FPGA device available on-board is user-programmable and can implement high-end signal processing algorithms. Based on customer requirements, front-panel I/O modules may be added to enable the FM780 or VP780 to perform data acquisition and waveform generation, high-speed communication, image processing and implement various types of complex DSP applications.

The FM780 and VP780 have a variety of memory options such as NAND Flash, QDRII SRAM+, and extra DDR3 SDRAM through BLAST modules. The user-configurable BLAST mounting sites may be populated with JPEG2000 CODECs or custom logic devices or circuit designs.

The boards come with board control and monitoring tools; a flash programming utility; confidence tests; host side API; a software program example; Xilinx ISE project; test firmware and VHDL source code; and software drivers for Windows, Linux, and VxWorks.
