Application-ready platform targets mil/aero
Vadatech has announced its first application-ready platform (ARP). This pre-configured system platform is suited for mil/aero applications requiring front-end deterministic processing and high data rates. The ARP200 Application-Ready Platform for Mil-sensor processing uses five AMC515 FPGAs, one AMC713 Freescale PowerPC P5020 processsor, one MicroTCA Carrier Hub (MCH) and one power module. Many of these applications require a highly connected FPGA cluster for multi-core signal conditioning and pre-processing from multiple sensor inputs. The company offers a Virtex-7 FPGA as a default, but has standard options for Kintex, Artix, and Zynq chipsets. Similarly, the ARP200 has a standard PowerPC P5020 Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) processor, but offers Intel and Caviu-based processors as options.
