Austin, TX - 4DSP today announced the release of the new VP788 and VP796 FPGA Mezzanine Cards, two 3U VPX form factor modules with advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) capabilities. The VP788 and VP796 are high-performance, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) cards designed for a variety of applications, including beamforming, RADAR, satellite communications, and Software Defined Radio.

Built around the Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA, the VP788 features eight 16-bit A/D channels running up to 250Msps each, while the VP796 features sixteen 14-bit A/D channels running up to 125Msps each. These designs provide the largest channel count in this frequency range and the most available onboard memory for real-time buffering of large data vectors. With the option to be conduction-cooled, both cards feature 10GBytes of onboard DDR3 SDRAM that is tightly-coupled to the FPGA. The cards also have the ability to synchronize analog signal sampling, making them excellent choices for large channel count data acquisition and beamforming applications.[Continue reading →]

FMC160 – Single channel 12-bit 3.6Gsps A/D; Single channel 14-bit 5.6Gsps D/A FMC161 - Dual channel 12-bit 1.8Gsps A/D or single channel 12-bit 3.6Gsps A/D January 27, 2014, AUSTIN, TX, USA - - 4DSP announced today the release of two new FPGA Mezzanine Cards (FMC – VITA 57.1) for high speed data acquisition and generation. The FMC160 provides one 12-bit A/D channel at 3.6Gsps and one 14-bit D/A channel at 5.6Gsps (2.8Gsps direct RF synthesis) clocked by either an internal clock source (optionally locked to an external reference) or an externally supplied sample clock. In addition, a trigger input for customized sampling control is available to FMC160 users. The FMC160 design is based on Texas Instruments' ADC12D1800 Analog-to-Digital converter and Analog Devices' AD9129 Digital-to-Analog converter.

The FMC161 provides one 12-bit A/D channel at 3.6Gsps or two A/D channels at 1.8Gsps clocked by either an internal clock source (optionally locked to an external reference) or an externally supplied sample clock. In addition, a trigger input for customized sampling control is available to FMC161 users. The FMC161 design is based on Texas Instruments' ADC12D1800 Analog-to-Digital converter. Both the FMC160 and FMC161 come with a high-pin count connector, front panel I/O, and can be used in a conduction cooled environment. The daughter cards are mechanically and electrically compliant to the FMC standard (ANSI/VITA 57.1).[Continue reading →]

VPB601 VPB603 4DSP’s FlexVPX provides system designers with the flexibility and performance required for the most demanding applications. The ability to interconnect 2 and 3-slot 3U VPX compliant backplanes allows for custom system configurations using COTS hardware. The backplanes are equipped with PCI Express bridges that ensure fast and high throughput for point-to-point communication between different elements in the system. FlexVPX utilizes OpenVPX (VITA 65) which enables the interoperability of products from different vendors. With the option to build multi-slot solutions, users have the opportunity to design a range of systems that feature a small footprint, a high level of ruggedization, and unmatched performance.

“FlexVPX has opened up new customer options for VPX backplanes and systems. 4DSP’s portfolio of FlexVPX backplanes are designed to meet virtually any application and give the system engineer the ability to capitalize on the established VPX ecosystem while improving system size, weight and power profile,” said Pierrick Vulliez, 4DSP’s CTO. The FlexVPX backplanes provide excellent options for building SONAR/RADAR, satellite communications, and Software Defined Radio systems when used with 4DSP’s 3U VPX FPGA carrier cards – the VP680, VP780, VP788, and VP796 – as well as the company’s StellarIP firmware development tool.[Continue reading →]
