Acromag VPX-VLX 3U VPX FPGA Modules

Acromag announced their VPX-VLX series of 3U VPX FPGA boards. The VPX-VLX features a Xilinx VLX85T, VLX110T, or VLX155T FPGA. The Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA has been enhanced with multiple high-speed memory buffers and a high-throughput PCIe interface. The cards are available in a format designed for use in air-cooled or conduction-cooled systems suitable for -40 to 85°C operation. The Acromag modules start at $7100 with several options for FPGA logic capacity and conduction-cooled extended temperature operation.

Acromag VPX-VLX FPGA Cards Features

  • Reconfigurable Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA (VLX85T, VLX110T, or VLX155T)
  • PCIe bus 4-lane Gen 1 interface
  • Supports both front and rear I/O connections
  • 64 I/O or 32 LVDS lines direct to FPGA via rear (J4) connector
  • Plug-in I/O extension modules are available for the front mezzanine
  • FPGA code loads from the PCIe bus or from on-board flash memory
  • 1M x 64-bit dual-ported SRAM provides direct links from the PCIe bus and to the FPGA
  • 32M x 32-bit DDR2 SDRAM is directly accessed through the FPGA
  • Supports dual DMA channel data transfer to/from the rest of the system
  • Support for Xilinx ChipScope Pro interface
  • Designed for conduction-cooled host card or -40 to 85°C operation in air-cooled systems
