Innovative Integration announces the new X6-250M. The X6-250M integrates digitizing with signal processing on a PMC/XMC IO module. The module has a powerful Xilinx Virtex 6 FPGA signal processing core, and high performance PCI Express/PCI host interface. Applications include software defined radio, RADAR receivers, and multi-channel data recorders. The X6-250M has eight simultaneously sampling A/D channels that sample at rates up to 310 MSPS (14-bit). The A/D have matched input delays and response. The A/D are supported by a programmable sample clock PLL and triggering that support multi-card synchronization for large scale systems.

A Xilinx Virtex6 SX315T (LX240T and SX475T options) with 4 banks of 1GB DRAM provide a very high performance DSP core with over 2000 MACs (SX315T). The close integration of the analog IO, memory and host interface with the FPGA enables real-time signal processing at extremely high rates. The X6-250M has both XMC and PCI interfaces, supporting PCI Express or older PCI systems. The PCI Express interface provides up to 3.2 GB/s sustained transfers rates through a x8 PCIe Gen2 interface. System expansion is supported using secondary PCI Express or Aurora port used as a private data channel or second system bus. The X6-250M power consumption is 23W for typical operation. The module may be conduction cooled using VITA20 standard and a heat spreading plate. Ruggedization levels for wide-temperature operation from -40 to +85C operation (conformal coating) and 0.1 g2/Hz vibration. The FPGA logic can be fully customized using VHDL, Matlab and the Frame Work Logic tool set. The Matlab Board Support Package (BSP) supports real-time hardware-in-the-loop development using the graphical block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator. IP cores for many wireless and DSP functions such as DDC, PSK/FSK demod, OFDM receiver, correlators and large FFT are available.

Software tools for host development include C++ libraries and drivers for Windows and Linux (including realtime variants). Application examples demonstrating the module features are provided. This extremely versatile module is easily adapted for use in virtually any type of system. Our XMC carrier adapters offer conduction and convection cooling and are available for a range of interfaces including desktop PCI/PCI-Express, cabled PCI-Express, CompactPCI, and PXI. This module is also readily installed into innovative Integration's Instrument Embedded PC and Andale Data Loggers. X6-250M may also be adapted to our VPXI-ePC for remote, autonomous IO, mobile instrumentation, distributed data acquisition or signal processing clusters.

Innovative Integration is a leader in signal processing and data acquisition hardware and software. Our products combine DSPs and FPGAs with high performance analog, ready for integration into demanding real time applications such as wireless, medical, and military.
