FPGA Is The Key To RACE++ I/O Board

The PowerRace-3 delivers processing performance and FPGA customization in a 6U VME board. A dual RACE++ switch fabric ties a pair of 533-MHz 440GX PowerPC processors and a pair of Xilinx Virtex Pro VP30 FPGAs to the rest of the system. The FPGAs have two 405 PowerPC processors, each with its own link to the 267-Mbyte/s RACE++ system. All six processors can have their own DDR memory, up to 256 Mbytes. A pair of 33-MHz, 64-bit PMC/XMC slots rounds out the system. Pricing starts at $17,500. It's available in commercial and rugged level 2 versions.
