White Paper & Webcast: FPGA Computing for Speed and Flexibility
Last month's live webinar on FPGA-based system design proved to bevery popular. So we are now making the recorded version availablefor viewing. Additionally, we distilled the essence of the seminar in a downloadable white paper for easy reference.
In the webcast and white paper, you will learn about the advantages of FPGA modules for embedded computing and I/O signal processing applications. Acromag's National Sales Manager, Rowland Demko, will explain how advanced Xilinx Virtex FPGAs make use of multiple digital clock managers and simultaneous parallel execution to rapidly compute a set of integrated processes. Many logic routines can run up to 1000X faster in an FPGA compared to using a CPU on a typical RTOS. These processes include FFT, SERDES, FIFO management, logic sequencing, DDR control, and more.
Rowland will also discuss soft-core IP, development tools, and the flexibility of I/O mezzanine interfaces. And to illustrate the benefits, he will review several applications including turbine control, aerial refueling, radar tracking, and threat detection.
Industry Pack Carrier Cards Get Design Refresh for Extended Life
Acromag recently refreshed the design of several popular CompactPCI IP carrier cards to extend their availability for long-term projects. These boards were threatened with an unplanned retirement due to several key components being discontinued. However, Acromag redesigned the boards as a drop-in replacement to maintain form, fit, and function compatibility for customers using the original models. Several enhancements were also made to comply with newer standards that won't affect pin or software compatibility.
To discuss these new boards or Acromag's Extended Life-Cycle Program, please call your local rep or an Acromag sales engineer at 248-295-0310.
