Henderson, NV – July 27, 2021 – VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VT971.

The VT971 is a rugged conduction cooled unit which follows VITA 47 for environmental up to CC4/C3/V3/OS2. The unit accepts 32 high-speed SERDES to the Xilinx XCVU13P FPGA, which is supported by two 64-bit wide banks for DDR4 memory for the total of 16GB of memory. The FPGA is integrated with a Layer 3 Managed Gbe/10GbE Ethernet Switch, providing 26 Egress port via front of the unit. The module supports 24 GbE through RJ-45 (10/100/1000Base-T) and dual 10GbE via SFP+.

The VT971 has a quad core ARM processor utilizing four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.4GHz. The CPU manages the layer three switch and interfaces to the FPGA via PCIe. The VT971 is ideal for applications where signals are digitized at a remote location and processed at a different site. The unit is available in conduction cooled form only and operates with input power of 10-36V DC.
