4DSP FM577 FPGA PMC Board

The FM577, from 4DSP, is a low-cost, low-power 65nm FPGA-based PMC board. The architecture is based on dual Altera Cyclone III FPGA devices. The FM577 offers high-functionality without compromising the performance or the ease of design. The board also features high-density DDR2 SDRAM memory devices for memory-intensive algorithms. The FM577 can operate in thermally challenged environments. It is suitable for automotive, consumer, display, industrial, military, video/image processing, and wireless markets. Available off the shelf, the FM577′s comes with a free board support package that helps developers to start designing applications immediately.
