TEK Microsystems, Inc. introduced their Serial FPDP core, which had support for Xilinx’s Virtex-5 FPGA devices. The sFPDP core is fully compliant to ANSI/VITA 17.1-2003 and provides system developers in real-time imaging, signal processing, data recording and data acquision with high performance industry leading technologies. The new Tekmicro sFPDP V5 core has already been ordered by a large defense integrator and will be shipped this month.
The sFPDP core is available as an option for any of Tekmicro’s Xilinx-based products, including both Virtex II Pro and Virtex 5 products. These include the JazzFiber PMC, JazzFiber XMC, and Quixilica family of VXS products. The Quixilica family combines the use of a common, FPGA based digital processing baseboard with a wide range of analog input and output mezzanine modules. The architecture allows system designers to adopt the technology with the assurance that future technology upgrades in either the digital baseboard or analog mezzanine can be made easily and cost effectively, protecting their investment in application firmware and software.
