4DSP announced a new high-performance PCI Express (PCIe) card today called the PC870 which provides one 10-bit analog-to-digital (A/D) channel at 5Gsps and one 10-bit digital-to-analog (D/A) channel at 5Gsps. Adapted from the Kintex UltraScale-based PC820 FPGA carrier card, the PC870 features advanced DSP capabilities, serial connectivity options, 4GB of DDR3 SDRAM, and a PCIe Gen3 interface that can support up to eight lanes.[Continue reading →]
Austin, TX - 4DSP’s new FM788 is a FPGA-based COTS card designed to deliver unparalleled performance for a variety of applications, including beamforming, direction finding, RADAR, and satellite communications. This XMC module is based on Xilinx’s Virtex-7 and features eight 16-bit A/D channels running up to 250Msps each. Its design provides the largest channel count in this frequency range and the most available onboard memory for real-time buffering of large data vectors. With four 10Gbps optical transceivers, the FM788 can be directly connected to a remote storage system without any CPU involvement.
“This approach of offering a way to digitize multiple analog channels, perform signal processing using the Virtex-7 and offload data to a storage system using optical connections on a single card overcomes the inherent limitations of bussed architectures,” said 4DSP CTO Pierrick Vulliez. “The FM788 provides predictable performance in a small form factor and reduces overall system power consumption.”[Continue reading →]
