VME/VXS Board with Gigabit Serial Interfaces
Pentek, Inc. released its Model 4207 for high-performance digital signal processing and data-acquisition systems. The board uses Freescale's MPC8641D Dual Core PowerPC AltiVec Processor and a Xilinx Virtex-4 FX Series FPGA. A fabric-transparent crossbar switch bridges gigabit serial resources including the PowerPC and FPGA, two XMCs, dual VXS ports, dual Fibre Channel ports and two optical serial transceivers. Native protocols support PCI Express, Serial RapidIO, Fibre Channel and Aurora, all accommodated by the crossbar switch. Up to 4 GB of fast DDR2 SDRAM simplifies data buffering and boosts real-time signal processing. The board is well suited for wideband, data acquisition-and-recording, real-time digital signal-processing and software-radio applications.
