In order to improve signal-processing performance, FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Array) became a key component during the last few years. Embedded on complex but well defined mother board architecture, FPGA is the Swiss-knife for processing many different signals in video systems, radars or mission computers. The new paradigm for modern FPGA is extreme high-speed I/O which requires optical links.
WildcatFMC enhances the modularity of the FPGA board equipped with mezzanine VITA 57 site by providing a plug-in and turn-key multichannel optical interface. This advantage, allows the FPGA board to achieve high speed I/O for applications requesting massive data-transfer without requiring an expensive redesign.[Continue reading →]
