Simi Valley, CA – July 31, 2008 — Innovative Integration announces the X5-GSPS, an XMC I/O module featuring the National Semiconductor 1.5 GSPS ADC08D1500 dual-channel, 8-bit A/Ds connected to a Virtex5 FPGA computing core, DRAM and SRAM memory plus an eight lane PCI Express host interface.
A Xilinx Virtex5 SX95T with 512 MB DDR2 DRAM and 4MB QDR-II memory provide a very high performance DSP core for demanding applications such as emerging wireless standards. The close integration of the analog I/O, memory and host interface with the FPGA enables real-time signal processing at extremely high rates exceeding 300 GMACs per second.
The X5-GSPS provides engineers a turnkey, modular solution perfectly suited to radio-frequency I/Q demodulation applications or other wideband analog signal capture applications. IP blocks available from Innovative can be embedded within the FPGA to perform digital down-conversion and decoding, unburdening the host of this computationally-intensive processing functions.
The X5 XMC modules couple Innovatives powerful Velocia architecture with a high performance, 8-lane PCI Express interface that provides over 1 GB/s sustained transfer rates to the host. Private links to host cards with > 1.6 GB/s capacity using P16 are provided for system integration. The X5 family can be fully customized using VHDL and MATLAB using the FrameWork Logic toolset. The MATLAB BSP supports real-time hardware-in-the-loop development using the graphical, block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator.
Software tools for host development include C++ libraries and drivers for Windows and Linux. Application examples demonstrating the module features and use are provided free of charge.
Applications include Wireless Receiver, WLAN, WCDMA, WiMAX front end, RADAR, Electronic Warfare, High Speed Data Recording & Playback, High speed servo controls, and IP development . Quantity 1 pricing $9,995.
