Brisbane-based Metromatics has announced the release of Acromag's new XMC-7K Family of XMC mezzanine modules enhanced with Xilinx® Kintex™ -7 FPGA for low-power consumptions and exceptional 128M x 64-bit DDR3 SDRAM processing performance.
Reconfigurable Kintex-7 FPGA is possible via a direct download into the flash configuration memory over the PCIe bus or the JTAG port.
Eight-Lane high-speed serial interface on rear P15 connector for PCI Express Gen 1/2 (standard), Serial Rapid I/O, 10-Gigabit Ethernet, and Xilinx Aurora implementations are supported.
Rear I/O provides 4 or 8-lane high-speed serial interface on the P16 XMC port.
Select I/O or LVDS pairs plus global clock pairs direct to FPGA via rear P4 or P16 port.
The FPGA serves as a co-processor applying custom logic and algorithms to streams of remote sensor data.
Typical applications include hardware simulation, communications, in-circuit diagnostics, military servers, signal intelligence, and image processing.
Migration to a standard protocol running on a well-defined medium such as Gigabit Ethernet, Serial Rapid I/O, or Aurora allows IP cores to be developed that can be easily supported for the long term.
Build options include the choice of a Xilinx XC7K325T or XC7K410T FPGA device.
Acromag's XMC-7K family offers a highly efficient and dependable module. Options include plug-in I/O, dual SFP+ ports, or conduction-cooled for extended temperature.
An engineering design kit provides the user with basic information required to develop a custom program. Software support packages are available for VxWorks® 32-bit, Windows® 32-bit DLL, and Linux™.
Acromag is represented in Australia and New Zealand by Metromatics.
