Alpha Data ADM-VPX3-7V2 Card Features Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA

Alpha Data ADM-VPX3-7V2 FPGA card

Alpha Data introduced the ADM-VPX3-7V2 FPGA card. The 3U OpenVPX module is reconfigurable and based on the Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA. The ADM-VPX3-7V2 enables engineers to quickly design new applications using off-the-shelf hardware and deploy on the same hardware with full ruggedized support. The board ships with a Software Development Kit (SDK), which includes example designs and software drivers. The ADM-VPX3-7V2 board is also available in a cost reduced form without a separate Bridge FPGA for high-volume production orders.

The ADM-VPX3-7V2 features a built-in PCI Express Gen2 interface with DMA, optional PCIe Gen3 interface to the user FPGA, external memory, high density I/O using a Vita 57 high Pin Count FMC interface, Gigabit Ethernet Interface, system monitoring, and flash boot facilities. A Rear Transition Module (RTM) is also available to accelerate development by providing monitor and control access to all rear (backplane) IO signals.
