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.

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.

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.
