FPGA compute module for signal processing speeds in

VadaTech has announced the VPX551 high-speed FPGA compute module for signal processing and beamforming applications. It provides dual Kintex UltraScale XCKU115 FPGAs, with each module offering more than 1,400K logic cells, which interface directly to rear I/O via SerDes, LVDS and fibre.

Each FPGA is supported by 16GB of 64-bit wide DDR4 (2 x Bank of 8GB) and 1GB flash. The rear panel fibre I/O is via six Vita 66.5 x12 modules, each of which can be populated as transmit or receive. The front panel fibre I/O is via SFP+.

The two FPGAs are connected by four SerDes lanes for high-speed communication and load sharing, and each has 16 high-speed SerDes routed to P1/P2.

The VPX551 includes Tier 2 platform health management/monitoring capability using VadaTech’s IPMI software. In addition an on-board management controller has the ability to access board sensors and manage FPGA image updates.

The unit is available in a range of temperature and shock/vib specifications per ANSI/VITA 47, including conduction cooled up to V3 and OS2.

VadaTech provides embedded computing solutions from board-level products, chassis-level platforms, to configurable application-ready systems.

With a focus on AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA, VPX and PCIe solutions, the company offers a combination of electrical, mechanical, software, and system-level service, enabling it to provide customised commercial or rugged computing solutions to meet complex requirements.

The company also offers specialised product solutions for VME, CompactPCI, and other architectures.

A member of PICMG and VITA, VadaTech has headquarters, design and manufacturing facilities in Henderson, NV with design, support and sales offices in Europe and Asia Pacific.
