Innovative Integration Unveils PEX6-COP FPGA Co-processor Card

Innovative Integration introduced their PEX6-COP FPGA co-processor card. The flexible board features an integrated FPGA computing core with an industry-standard FMC IO module on a half-length PCI Express desktop or server card. The FPGA computing core supports the Xilinx Virtex 6 FPGA family in densities up to LX550 and SX475. The SX475 offers over 2000 DSP MAC elements operating at up to 500 MHz. The FPGA core has two 9MB QDRII+ SRAM banks, two 256MB LPDDR2 DRAM banks, and a 128MB DDR3 bank. Each memory is directly connected to the FPGA and is fully independent.

The FPGA logic can be fully customized using the Frame Work Logic tool set. The toolset provides support for both MATLAB and RTL designs. The MATLAB BSP supports real-time hardware-in-the-loop development using the graphical, block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator. IP cores for a range of signal processing cores for applications such as wireless, RADAR and SIGINT such as DDC, demodulation, and FFT are also available.
