Pentek 53xxx Cobalt FPGA Boards

Pentek introduced the 53xxx Cobalt family of ruggedized boards for military and avionics applications. The 53xxx Cobalt modules feature the Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA devices for on-board signal processing. It features digital sampling rates up to 1 GHz and a compact 3U VPX form factor. Pricing for the Pentek Cobalt 53xxx 3U VPX module starts at $14,490 USD. Delivery is stock to 10 weeks ARO. The ruggedized boards are ideal for UAV, CommINT (Communications Intelligence) transceivers, airborne communications recorders, airborne radar countermeasures, shipboard diversity transceivers and armored vehicle anti-IED systems.
