Acromag’s XMC FPGA modules feature a user-customizable Xilinx Virtex®-5 or Spartan®-6 FPGA and a PCI Express interface. These modules allow users to develop and store their own instruction sets in the FPGA for a variety of adaptive computing applications.
Although there is no limit to the uses for Acromag’s FPGA I/O boards, several applications are ideal for this new technology. Common uses include sonar, radar, hardware simulation, automated test equipment, protocol conversion, in-circuit diagnostics, military servers, telecommunication, and digital signal processing. Typical applications for conduction-cooled models include manned and unmanned vehicles, battleground SIGINT and communications systems, deployment on tanks, or any system where ambient or forced air can’t provide adequate cooling.
Acromag offer an FPGA engineering design kit and software utilities with examples to simplify your programming and get you started quickly. A JTAG interface enables on-board VHDL simulation.
