Acromag in Wixom, Mich., is intro- ducing PMC-SLX mezzanine boards based on the Xilinx Spartan-6 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for advanced signal processing applications. These boards, based on the PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) form factor, are for embedded computing systems developers with tightening budget and time constraints, Acromag officials say. Typical uses include hardware simulation, in-circuit diagnostics, communications, signal intelligence, and image processing. Spartan-6 FPGAs have integrated logic, digital signal processor (DSP), and memory resources.
Acromag adds a high-throughput PCI-eXtended (PCI-X) interface, large memory banks, and access to field I/O signals. Extra memory and extended-temperature options are available. Field I/O interfaces to the FPGA include a rear J4/P4 connector and/or with optional front mezzanine I/O extension modules; 64 I/O or 32 LVDS lines are accessible through the rear connector. Acromag’s plug-in AXM mezzanine cards provide additional I/O processing. AXM mezzanine I/O cards are available to provide front-end, 14-bit, 105-MHz A/D conversions or an interface for CMOS digital I/O, RS-485 differential signals, or extra LVDS I/O.
