Innovative Integration recently introduced their X6-250M XMC module. The X6-250M features a Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA signal processing core, XMC and PCI interfaces, and eight simultaneously sampling A/D channels. The X6-250M XMC module from Innovative Integration is ideal for software defined radio, RADAR receivers, and multi-channel data recorders.
The X6-250M includes a Xilinx Virtex 6 SX315T (LX240T and SX475T options) with four banks of 1GB DRAM. It provide a high performance DSP core with over 2000 MACs (SX315T). The close integration of the analog IO, memory and host interface with the FPGA enables real-time signal processing at extremely high rates.
The FPGA logic can be fully customized using VHDL, Matlab and the Frame Work Logic tool set. The Matlab Board Support Package (BSP) supports real-time hardware-in-the-loop development using the graphical block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator. IP cores for many wireless and DSP functions such as DDC, PSK/FSK demod, OFDM receiver, correlators and large FFT are available.
The X6-250M’s A/D channels can sample at rates up to 310 MSPS (14-bit). The A/D have matched input delays and response. The A/D are supported by a programmable sample clock PLL and triggering that support multi-card synchronization for large scale systems.
The X6-250M features both XMC and PCI interfaces, supporting PCI Express or older PCI systems. The PCI Express interface provides up to 3.2 GB/s sustained transfers rates through a x8 PCIe Gen2 interface. System expansion is supported using secondary PCI Express or Aurora port used as a private data channel or second system bus.
The XMC module from Innovative Integration has a power consumption of 23W for typical operation. The module may be conduction cooled using VITA20 standard and a heat spreading plate. Ruggedization levels for wide-temperature operation from -40° to +85° C operation (conformal coating) and 0.1 g2/Hz vibration.
