Low-profile PCI Express FPGA board for SIGINT and security introduced by BittWare

CONCORD, N.H., 24 July 2014. BittWare Inc. in Concord, N.H., is introducing the A5-PCI Express-L (A5PL) low profile PCI Express embedded computing board based on Altera's Arria V AZ field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for signals intelligence (SIGINT), security, network processing, and broadcast applications.

The power- and cost-efficient Arria V AZ provides a high level of system integration and flexibility for I/O, routing, and processing. With dual QSFP+ cages that run to 12.5 gigabits per second, the A5PL provides dual 40 Gigabit Ethernet or octal 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports using optical transceivers as well as passive copper cabling to eight meters.

These ports are serviced by the advanced 28-nanometer Arria V AZ FPGA, which is in turn supported by a Gen3 x8 PCI Express interface and either 8 gigabytes DDR3, 1 gigabytes RLDRAM3, or 64 megabyte QDRII+.

Time-stamping and synchronization options are supported by dual SMA connectors for interfacing to 1PPS or 10 MHz reference clocks, in addition to the tunable on-board high accuracy, temperature compensated oscillator (TCXO).

A board management controller (BMC) with host software support for advanced system monitoring also is provided. For more information contact BittWare online at www.bittware.com.
