VadaTech’s 3U VPX SBC has large RAM for radar and smart jamming

Loaded with 360Mbit on-chip UltraRAM, the VPX572 has sufficient memory for applications such as radar simulation and smart jamming, says VadaTech.

The 3U VPX features a XCVU13P FPGA, which has large 360 Mb on-chip UltraRAM for applications such as radar simulation and smart jamming.

There is also a dual ADC (ADC12DJ3200) with sampling rates of up to 6.4Gsamples per second at 12-bit resolution. The ADCs are capable of being configured to run as quad channel each running at 3.2Gsamples per second.

The FPGA interfaces directly to rear I/O via SerDes and LVDS, supporting PCIe, SRIO, GbE/10GbE/40GbE or Aurora backplane connections. There are also general purpose I/O signals, e.g. for trigger, routed to the front panel, which also contains eight, bi-colour user LEDs.

The ADCs on the VPX572 have a common sampling rate, which can be fed from front panel (direct RF clock) or from phase locked loop (PLL) locked to a 10/100 MHz reference clock sourced from front panel or backplane. The ADCs are fully coherent with sampling clock selection being by ordering option. The board also includes board health management, or monitoring capability, using VadaTech’s IPMI software. The software is compatible with the company’s Tier 2 platform managers.  An on-board management controller can access board sensors and manage FPGA image updates.

The unit is available in a range of temperature, shock and vibration specifications per ANSI/VITA 47, up to V3 and OS2
