Acromag VPX-SLX Boards Feature Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA

Acromag announced their VPX-SLX FPGA boards. The VPX-SLX card features the Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA with 150k logic cells, high-throughput PCI Express interface, dual-ported memory for efficient data handling, and 64 I/O lines direct to the FPGA. The VPX board is ideal for defense, aerospace, or scientific research. Applications include signal intelligence, image processing, and hardware simulation. Prices start at $5200 for the air-cooled version. The conduction-cooled version costs a little more.
