WIXOM, Mich. – Acromag in Wixom, Mich., is introducing the XMC-7AWP and XMC-7KWP switched mezzanine card (XMC) modules, each with a user-programmable Xilinx Artix-7 or Kintex-7 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for hardware simulation, communications, signals intelligence (SIGINT), adaptive filtering, and image processing.
Designed with data security for defense and aerospace embedded computing, these commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) FPGA cards are for algorithmic acceleration, protocol conversion, simulation, HIL test, motor control, image analysis, and sensor fusion applications.
The XMC mezzanine cards plug into host single-board computers or non-intelligent carrier cards for use in PCI Express servers, VPX, or CompactPCI Serial chassis, and small-form-factor embedded computers.
The air-cooled embedded computing cards operate reliably across a wide ambient temperature range. The modules also can accommodate conduction-cooled systems.
Each module's FPGA feature write-protected flash memory to secure the configuration files, and offer high-speed interfaces for PCI Express, 10 10-Gigabit Ethernet, Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS), serial, and other I/O signals.
The XMC-7KWP FPGA cards offer a choice of Kintex-7 FPGAs for 325,000 or 410,000 logic cells. Dual SFP+ ports offer support for 10-gigabit Ethernet with fiber or copper transceivers. A 36-pin VHDCR connector provides JTAG, USB, global differential clock pairs, and LVDS signals to the FPGA.
The rear I/O XMC port offers a four-lane high-speed serial interface and supports SelectIO channels for single-ended or differential I/O. A PMC-style port supports additional SelectIO channels.
The XMC-7AWP models feature a user-configurable Artix-7 FPGA with 200,000 logic cells. The rear I/O provides an eight-lane high-speed serial interface on the P16 XMC port with support for 34 single-ended SelectIO or 17 LVDS channels. The P4 port adds another 60 SelectIO or 30 LVDS and global clock lines.
