6U FPGA card with trio of Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGAs touts desirable processing density and I/O flexibility
Curtiss-Wright Controls Defense Solutions has announced its CHAMP-FX4 COTS 6U FPGA engine. This rugged, high-performance OpenVPX (VITA 65) board is said to be the industry’s first COTS 6U FPGA engine to feature triple on-board Xilinx Virtex-7 devices in a single chassis slot. The CHAMP-FX4 is asserted to deliver 50 to 100 percent superior bandwidth compared to previous generations of 6U FPGA offerings. The board’s processing throughput is rated at >100 GB/s for both memory bandwidth and backplane I/O bandwidth. The new board is designed to speed and simplify the integration of high performance FPGA processing for demanding applications such as radar processing, signal intelligence (SIGINT), ISR, image processing, network processing and electronic warfare (EW). It is appropriate for use in C4ISR platforms such as digital beam formers, digital receivers, and radar processors deployed in airborne, ground and base station military environments.
