XMC embedded computing module with Spartan-6 FPGA for cost-sensitive embedded computing introduced by Acromag
WIXOM, Mich., 10 Feb. 2011. Acromag in Wixom, Mich., is introducing a series of Express Mezzanine Card (XMC) embedded computing modules based on the Xilinx Spartan-6 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) for budget- and time-constrained DSP, logic, and algorithm embedded computing applications.
All models employ the logic-optimized SLX150 version of the Spartan-6 FPGA, which provides 147,433 logic cells and 180 DSP slices. Units are ready for conduction-cooled systems and offer an option to upgrade with extended temperature range parts suitable for -40 to 85 degrees Celsius operation.
For integration of the boards with embedded Windows applications, Acromag developed a DLL driver software package for compatibility with Microsoft Visual C++, and Visual Basic. For real time and open-source applications, Acromag offers C libraries for VxWorks, Linux, and other operating systems.
