The XF07-516 Analog I/O XMC is the newest member of Curtiss-Wright Controls' family of Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA-based XMC cards. Targeted for high-end defense and aerospace applications, the XF07-516 is a high speed quad-channel 250MSPS analog input XMC (ANSI/VITA 42) mezzanine card.

The new XMC card features an onboard user-programmable Xilinx Kintex XC7K325T FPGA for combining data acquisition and user algorithms. With its 4 channels of direct high-speed analog I/O and next-generation FPGA processing the XF07-516 is ideal for demanding applications including radar and imaging processing and test equipment in the commercial and defense markets.

The XF07-516 supports two banks of 128Mx16-bit DDR3 SDRAM, each directly connected to the FPGA. As each memory bank is independently connected to the FPGA, there is great flexibility in how they may be used. Each memory bank supports read or write bandwidths >2Gbytes/sec.

The XF07-516 supports a x4/x8 PCIe channel through the primary XMC P15 connector using the FPGA’s built-in PCIe end-point block. Alternatively, with customer HDL development, the XMC P15 can be used to provide user defined protocol support over the data links, such as Aurora, for higher bandwidth and lower latency operation.
