CAMARILLO, Calif., 2 Sept. 2009. Nallatech in Camarillo, Calif., is introducing the VXS-620 FPGA and PowerPC VXS multiprocessor DSP board for embedded systems signal processing and sensor processing in signals intelligence, software defined radio, and radar systems.
CAMARILLO, Calif., 2 Sept. 2009. Nallatech in Camarillo, Calif., is introducing the VXS-620 FPGA and PowerPC multiprocessor DSP board for embedded systemssignal processing and sensor processing in signals intelligence, software defined radio, and radar systems.
The VXS-620 single board computer has an on-board Xilinx Virtex-5 field programmable gate array (FPGA) for the implementation of high performance digital signal processing (DSP) applications. The FPGA processing is supplemented by a PowerPC for standalone operation, communications management and user applications. Notably, the VXS-620 maximizes sensor I/O density with two PMC/XMC sites. These sites can support additional FPGAs, several channels of analog or digital I/O and additional network interfaces.
The VXS-620 is also supported by Development Kits available for both Linux and Wind River VxWorks. These include a Software Development Kit (SDK) with all necessary software drivers and libraries required to run the operating systems on the PowerPC. They also include an FPGA Development Kit (FDK), with FPGA cores supplied to interface to FPGA peripherals including memories, data interfaces and I/O ports.
The VXS-620 is already shipping to fulfill contract awards with several defense customers in North America and in Europe. For further information, visit www.nallatech.com, or call (805) 383-8997 (North America) or +44 1236 789 567 (Europe).
