CAMARILLO, Calif., 29 Aug. 2009. Nallatech, a supplier of high-performance COTS FPGA processing solutions, announced its latest PMC/XMC product offering. The new XMC-240 FPGA processing and analog input PMC/XMC mezzanine is designed to meet the signal processing needs of modern signal intelligence, software-defined radio, and radar applications.

The XMC-240 is the latest product to be introduced in the Nallatech REVX Series of rugged embedded processing solutions.

The XMC-240 features four channels of analog input that can sample analog signals at up to 250 MSPS with 14 bits resolution, says a representative. They are coupled directly to a Xilinx Virtex-5 SX95T FPGA for the implementation of high-performance DSP applications to process the data captured from the A/D converters.

The XMC-240 is supported by Development Kits available for Linux and Wind River VxWorks. Available are a Software Development Kit (SDK) with all necessary software drivers and libraries and an FPGA Development Kit (FDK), with FPGA cores supplied to interface to FPGA peripherals including memories, data interfaces, and analog interfaces.

First customer shipment of the new XMC-240 took place in July 2009 to a major defense contractor, says a representative.

Nallatech is taking XMC-240 orders for Fall 2009 delivery.
