FMC module for rugged military appli- cations introduced by Curtiss-Wright


Curtiss-Wright Controls Embedded Computing is introducing the FMC-516 rugged field-programmable gate array (FPGA) mezzanine card for military applications, such as signals intelligence (SIGINT), electronic countermeasures (ECM), and radar that need high-speed A/D converter components as part of a digital receiver. The FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) is a quad-channel, 250-megasample-per-second, 16-bit analog input card that enables systems designers to couple I/O devices directly to a host FPGA to make the most of throughput and synchronizes several channels and boards. The FMC-516 helps integrate FPGAs into military embedded systems with low latency and high bandwidth. The FMC-516 has four A/D converters that connect through the module's FMC connector to an FPGA-based host board. It comes in air- and conduction-cooled versions. Software support includes Curtiss-Wright's FusionXF/HDL development kit, including software, hardware description language, and utilities.
