BittWare, the leader in Altera-based FPGA COTS boards are now offering the industry’s first 6U VPX board, powered by Altera’s 28-nm Stratix® V FPGAs.
Designed for high-end applications, the Stratix V provides a high level of system integration and flexibility for I/O, routing, and processing.
The new S5-6U-VP board, available from Sarsen Technology Ltd, provides a configurable 48-port multi-gigabit transceiver interface supporting a variety of protocols, including Serial RapidIO, PCI Express, and 10GigE. Additional I/O interfaces include Ethernet, RS-232, JTAG, and LVDS.
The board features up to 8 GB of DDR3 SDRAM as well as Flash memory for booting the FPGAs. When combined with the optional BittWare Anemone FPGA co-processor and the ATLANTiS FrameWork FPGA development kit, the S56X creates a flexible, rugged and efficient solution for high-performance signal processing and data acquisition.
"The Stratix V is an extremely powerful FPGA, providing a tremendous amount of logic, memory, and multipliers, coupled with a large number of multi-gigabit transceivers," stated Ron Huizen, VP of Technology at BittWare.
"Providing two of these FPGAs on a proven, fully-validated, VITA 65 OpenVPX COTS platform, with each Stratix V having access to a full FMC site for adaptable I/O and an Anemone co-processor for floating point, as well as the ARM for overall board control, makes for an extremely powerful board ready for deployment."
- Two VITA 57 FMC sites for processing and I/O expansion
- Two High density Stratix V GX/GS FPGAs
- Two Anemone Floating Point Co-processors (optional)
- 800 MHz ARM® Cortex™-A8 control processor
- 48 multi-gigabit transceivers
- Up to 8 GBytes on-board memory
- I/O includes: GigE, SerDes, LVDS, JTAG, RS-232
"BittWare and Altera have a long history of working closely together to provide high-performance, reconfigurable FPGA-based COTS boards to the industry," said David Gamba, director of Altera’s military and computing business unit.
"By leveraging the Stratix V GS FPGA’s floating point DSP blocks, which deliver up to one TeraFLOP of computing performance, combined with the FPGA’s low-power, multi-gigabit transceivers and a high-density, high-performance architecture, BittWare’s S56X board delivers a rugged and completely flexible signal processing solution capable of driving innovative new capabilities previously unseen in military applications."
