    Pentek 3U VPX/OpenVPX Virtex-6 FPGA ADC / DAC Modules

    Pentek's 53xxx family is industry's first in a series of 3U VPX/OpenVPX signal acquisition and generation modules for high-performance military and avionics applications. Utilizing industry's most advanced Virtex-6 FPGAs for on-board signal processing, 53xxx series supports digital sampling rates up to 1 GHz in both air-cooled and ruggedized conduction-cooled versions.

  • Key features:
  • •Embedded IP delivers turnkey software radio solutions
  • •GateFlow Design Kit speeds integration of custom IP
  • •Supports gigabit serial fabrics including PCI Express(Gen 2), Serial Rapid IO and Xilinx Aurora
  • •Up to 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM or 32MB of QDRII+ SRAM, or combined
  • •3U VPX/OpenVPX form factor provides a compact, rugged platform
  • •Ruggedized and conduction-cooled versions available
  • By combining processing, data conversion, and preconfigured functions, the 53xxx family is suitable for such applications as UAV, CommINT (Communications Intelligence) transceivers, airborne communications recorders, airborne radar countermeasures, shipboard diversity transceivers and armoured vehicle anti-IED systems.

    Each module features a Xilinx Virtex-6 LXT or SXT FPGA fully connected to all data and control paths. The FPGAs contain factory-installed functions including data multiplexing, channel selection, data packing, gating, triggering, time stamping, and memory control with additional capacity for user-defined functions. The modules support a range of Virtex-6 devices, allowing customers to choose the device density that best fits their requirements.

  • Embedded IP delivers turnkey software radio solutions
  • Users can readily integrate custom processing algorithms with the factory-installed IP in Cobalt devices using Pentek's GateFlow® FPGA design kits. The kits facilitate implementation of DSP functions such as FFTs, FIR filters and software-radio blocks. GateFlow kits include VHDL source files for all standard board features and work in conjunction with the Xilinx IDS Foundation design tools.

    ReadyFlow® board support packages for C-language programming include drivers, project files and example code demonstrating all features. ReadyFlow supports Windows®, Linux® and VxWorks® operating systems.
