This month we have a new white paper and webinar as a primer on Ethernet concepts. We introduce our new PCI Express Carrier Cards and we are proud to announce that Acromag received the Four Star Supplier Exellence Award from Raytheon. We have a new distributor for Turkey and Acromag's President Dave Wolfe's blog says "Finally, an FPGA Virtex-6 design for video processing!"
White paper: Ethernet in the Embedded Space
Embedded computing system developers are deploying high-speed Ethernet networks in more and more applications to move increasingly large volumes of data and to reduce the complexity of physical interconnects. As a result, new FPGA module processing technologies and communication facilitators, such as TCP offload engines (TOE) like the unified wire silicon stack, are required. These technologies are necessary to meet expanding requirements for data throughput, redundancy, and the exchange of various standardized and non-standardized information. This presentation will discuss the evolution of embedded Ethernet communication technology and explain the benefits and limitations when interfacing data via the SBC, silicon stack hardware and FPGAs.

Carrier Cards Interface XMC Mezzanine Modules to PCI Express Bus for PC-based Embedded Systems
Acromag’s new APCe8675 card routes power and PCIe bus signals to an XMC mezzanine module for high-performance signal processing in a desktop computer or laboratory prototype system.
Acromag’s APCe8675 carrier card offers a simple and cost-effective solution that allows a PC to communicate with an XMC mezzanine module over a PCI Express (PCIe) bus. System developers can insert Acromag’s FPGA modules or other XMC modules on the carrier card to perform a variety of signal processing functions. The carrier’s PCIe x8 interface supports up to eight serial lanes for rapid data transfer between the plug-in XMC module and the host computer. These carriers are ideal for high-performance industrial and scientific research computing systems. They are also useful to test advanced systems for defense and aerospace applications that will be deployed later on rugged embedded computer platforms such as VME, VPX, or CompactPCI. Standard model, single unit pricing starts at $700. continue reading
Acromag Receives the Four Star Supplier Excellence Award from Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems
Acromag achieves a prestigious award from Raytheon in response to their consistent dedication to quality and performance.
Acromag was recognized for their quality and performance when presented with the Four Star Supplier Excellence Award for 2012 by Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS). Raytheon IDS established the annual Supplier Excellence Awards program to recognize suppliers who have provided outstanding service and partnership; showing commitment to quality and exceeding customer requirements. Award candidates are held to high standards, particularly against three important criteria: on-time delivery measures, sustained performance on quality, and commitment to continuous process and quality improvement. Out of several thousand Raytheon IDS suppliers, Acromag was among a select few to receive the Four Star Award based on their ability to achieve over a 97% on-time and quality performance for twelve months.

From the President's Blog
Finally, an FPGA Virtex-6 design for video processing!
Acromag has developed many generations of FPGA products for years. We have products for IP Modules, PMC, and XMC platforms. It always amazes me how each new generation opens a world of applications that could not be done before. The XMC module with the Xilinx Virtex-6 (XMC-6VLX365) really opens up the power of the FPGA.
