Acromag's XCOM-6400 rugged COM Express processor featuring an extra-thick circuit board, advanced thermal management, and extended operating temperature is the ideal high-performance processor for the InfiniSCAN.[Continue reading →]
Acromag's APCe8675 carrier card offers a simple and cost-effective solution that allows a PC to communicate with an XMC mezzanine module over a PCI Express (PCIe) bus. System developers can insert Acromag's FPGA modules or other XMC modules on the carrier card to perform a variety of signal processing functions. The carrier's PCIe x8 interface supports up to eight serial lanes for rapid data transfer between the plug-in XMC module and the host computer. These carriers are ideal for high-performance industrial and scientific research computing systems. They are also useful to test advanced systems for defense and aerospace applications that will be deployed later on rugged embedded computer platforms such as VME, VPX, or CompactPCI. Standard model, single unit pricing starts at $700.
"Now system developers can build powerful computers with an array of FPGA modules using a high-speed interconnect fabric similar to those of high-end VPX systems, but in a low-cost PC chassis," noted Joseph Primeau, Acromag's sales and marketing director. Several rear I/O connectors enable high-speed serial interfaces between neighboring carrier boards using XAUI or Aurora protocols. These ports simplify board-to-board connections with twinax or internal SCSI-3 cables to left and right adjacent carrier cards.[Continue reading →]
