Product short description:
  • PMC module with PCI-X interface
  • Logic-optimized Spartan-6 FPGA
  • I/O extension mezzanine modules
  • 147,433 logic cells (XC6SLX150)

Field I/O interfaces to the PMC FPGA via the rear J4/P4 connector and/or with optional front mezzanine AXM plug-in I/O modules.

[DISPLAY_ULTIMATE_PLUS]

Acromag’s cost-effective PMC-SLX modules feature a user-configurable Xilinx® Spartan®-6 FPGA enhanced with high-speed memory and a high-throughput PCI-X interface. Field I/O interfaces to the PMC FPGA via the rear J4/P4 connector and/or with optional front mezzanine AXM plug-in I/O modules. The result is a powerful and flexible I/O processor module that is capable of executing custom instruction sets and algorithms.

Large, high-speed memory banks enable efficient data handling. The dual-port SRAM facilitates high-speed DMA transfers to the bus or CPU. A high-bandwidth PCI-X interface ensures fast data throughput. 64 I/O lines are accessible through the rear (J4) connector. Additional I/O processing is supported on a separate mezzanine card that plugs into the PMC FPGA base board. A variety of these external AXM I/O cards are available to interface your analog and digital I/O signals. Take advantage of the conduction-cooled design for use in hostile environments. Conduction efficiently dissipates heat if there is inadequate cooling air flow. Optional extended temperature models operate reliably from -40 to 85°C. Acromag’s Engineering Design Kit provides software utilities and example VHDL code to simplify your program development and get you running quickly. A JTAG interface enables on-board VHDL debugging.

How to Get the Timing Right in Critical FPGA Applications Application Note
As the capacity of FPGA devices increases, the quantity and complexity of application tasks deployed on a single PMC FPGA module likewise increases. As a result, accurate management of all the unique clocks associated with these tasks becomes a very significant challenge for the application developer. In this article, we discuss the tools and constructs...
How to Keep Heat in Check with Conduction Cooling Application Note
Current application demands of PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) modules have grown from the simple addition of I/O and low-level communications to the servicing and off-loading of high performance software defined radio (SDR), digital signal processing (DSP), co-processing, and now re-configurable FPGA-based computing with gigabit interfaces. This trend of putting more and more processing power on...
