Acromag’s XMC-6VLX modules feature a high-performance user-configurable Xilinx® Virtex®-6 FPGA enhanced with high-speed memory and a high-throughput serial interface. The result is a powerful and flexible I/O processor module that is capable of executing custom instruction sets and algorithms.

The logic-optimized FPGA is well-suited for a broad range of applications. Typical uses include hardware simulation, communications, in-circuit diagnostics, military servers, signal intelligence, and image processing.

Two Versions: Rear I/O or Front + Rear
Two versions of this module are available, each offering a choice of an FPGA device with 240k or 365k logic cells. One version provides only rear I/O for use in air or conduction-cooled systems. The other version adds two SFP ports and a 36-pin connector on the front but only supports air-cooled systems.

On all versions, the rear I/O provides an 8-lane high-speed serial interfaces on both the P15 and P16 XMC ports for PCI Express, Serial RapidIO, 10-Gigabit Ethernet, or Xilinx Aurora implementation. P16 also supports 34 SelectIO channels. The P4 port adds another 60 SelectIO and global clock lines. SelectI/O signals are Virtex-6 FPGA I/O pins that support single-ended I/O (LVCMOS, HSTL, SSTL) and differential I/O standards (LVDS, HT, LVPECL, BLVDS, HSTL, SSTL).

Models with front I/O add dual SFP ports and a VHDCR connector. The two SFP ports each provide a copper or fibre interface of up to 2.5Gbps. They also support a Gigabit Ethernet interface. The VHDCR connector interfaces JTAG, USB, and 22 SelectIO.

With Acromag’s Virtex-6 FPGA modules, you can greatly increase DSP algorithm performance for faster throughput using multiple channels and parallel hardware architectures. Free up DSP processor CPU cycles by offloading algorithmic-intensive tasks to the FPGA co-processor.

These modules are ideal for high-performance customized embedded systems. Optimize your system performance by integrating high-speed programmable logic with the flexibility of software running on MicroBlaze™ soft processors.

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. Additional Xilinx tools help finish your system faster. Maximize FPGA performance with ISE® Design Suite. And with ChipScope™ Pro tools, you can rapidly debug logic and serial interfaces
