XMC Board Targets Communications Apps

innovative_0727-AInnovative Integration has announced the X6-250M, which integrates digitizing with signal processing on a PMC/XMC IO module. The module includes a Xilinx Virtex 6 FPGA signal processing core and a high-performance PCI Express/PCI host interface. The SX315T Virtex 6—the LX240T and SX475T are options—with four banks of 1-Gbyte DRAM provide a very high performance DSP core with over 2000 MACs. Also included are eight simultaneously sampling 14-bit A/D channels sampling at rates up to 310 Msamples/s. The A/Ds have matched input delays and response and are supported by a programmable PLL sample clock and triggering for multi-card synchronization on large-scale systems. 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. Applications include software-defined radio, RADAR receivers, and multi-channel data recorders.
