PMC Modules Enlist Virtex-5 FPGAs

The PMC-VSX PMC I/O modules pair a reconfigurable, DSP-optimized Virtex-5 FPGA with large banks of DDR2 DRAM and dual-port SRAM for executing complex algorithms through the PCI bus. A high-throughput PCI-X interface ensures ample bandwidth to rapidly move data. The PMC base card provides 64 LVDS I/O channels accessible via P4 rear connectors. Optional front-connecting AXM I/O extension modules expand I/O processing capabilities with an interface for 16-bit, 105-MHz A/D conversion, CMOS digital I/O, RS-485 differential signals, or extra LVDS I/O lines. Typical applications include video, imaging, radar/sonar, electronic warfare, signal intelligence, and communication processing. Prices start at $6,750.
