Simi Valley, Calif.Innovative Integration Inc. has started to ship the X5-400M, a mezzanine I/O module featuring two 14-bit, 400 MSPS A/D and DAC channels with a Virtex5 FPGA computing core and PCI Express host interface on a standard XMC module.
A Xilinx Virtex5 SX95 FPGA with 1 GB DDR2 DRAM and 4MB QDR memory provides 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 rates exceeding 300 GMACs per second.
The X5 XMC modules couple Innovative's Velocia data flow architecture with an 8-lane PCI Express interface that provides over 1-Gbytes/s sustained transfer rates to the host. Private links to host cards with over 1.6-Gbytes/s capacity using J16 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.
The module provides an off-the-shelf solution in building high-speed software radios, RADAR systems and MIMO development platforms. Applications include Wireless Receiver and Transmitter, WLAN, WCDMA, WiMAX front-end RADAR, electronic warfare, high speed data recording and playback, high speed servo control and IP development.
