3U OpenVPX design and development environment for building Altera FPGA-based systems introduced by BittWare
CONCORD, N.H., 24 May 2011. BittWare in Concord, N.H., is introducing the VPX Rapid Development Platform (VRDP) tool for designing and testing VPX embedded computing systems. The design and development tool combines OpenVPX with as many as five Altera Stratix Family field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). The BittWare VRDP provides as many as five OpenVPX slots for system configurations. Adding BittWare's ATLANTiS FrameWork enables users to design and debug.
The S43X has an Altera Stratix IV GX FPGA, and the GT3X has the Stratix II GX FPGA and four Analog Devices ADSP-TS201 TigerSHARC digital signal processing (DSP) chips. The OpenVPX boards support ATLANTiS FrameWork to control I/O, routing, and processing.
Software support includes device drivers, host interface libraries, diagnostic utilities, as well as configuration and debug tools. For more information contact BittWare online at www.bittware.com.
