WIXOM, Mich. – Acromag in Wixom, Mich., is introducing the XMC-7AWP and XMC-7KWP embedded computing modules for signals intelligence, image processing, communications, adaptive filtering, and hardware simulation.
The switched mezzanine card (XMC) embedded computing modules come with high-speed interfaces for PCI Express, 10-gigabit Ethernet, LVDS, serial, and other I/O signals.
These COTS modules are for algorithmic acceleration, protocol conversion, simulation, HIL test, motor control, image analysis, and sensor fusion.
These modules come with a user-programmable Xilinx Artix-7 or Kintex field-programmable gate array (FPGA), and feature write-protected flash memory to secure the configuration files.
The XMC-7KWP models offer a choice of Kintex-7 FPGAs for 325k or 410k 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 200k logic cells. The rear I/O provides an 8-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.
These XMCs 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.
