Pentek Introduces Quad Serial FPDP Boards for High-Speed Digital Data Links

Eletter Product

Pentek is now offering two quad Serial FPDP (Front Panel Data Port) boards with a Virtex-6 FPGA: the Model 71611 XMC module and the Model 7811 native PCI Express card. These new Serial FPDP devices extend Pentek's Virtex-6 Cobalt? product line by providing four channels of serial communication with up to 1 gigabyte per second aggregate data transfer capability.

  • Competitive pricing for cost-sensitive applications
  • Fully-compliant with Serial FPDP VITA 17.1 with copper and optical options
  • Offered with optimized sFPDP IP cores installed in Virtex-6 FPGAs
  • Four-channel devices transfer data at 250 MB/sec per channel
  • XMC, PCIe, cPCI, and OpenVPX versions available

Pentek is now offering two quad Serial FPDP (Front Panel Data Port) boards with a Virtex-6 FPGA: the Model 71611 XMC module and the Model 7811 native PCI Express card. These new Serial FPDP devices extend Pentek's Virtex-6 Cobalt® product line by providing four channels of serial communication with up to 1 gigabyte per second aggregate data transfer capability.

Many applications need to deliver high-speed data between systems or from sensors to a data acquisition system over extended distances. As a popular industry standard, sFPDP offers a fast, efficient, bidirectional point-to-point interconnect solution. Applications such as military radar, signal intelligence and medical imaging can take advantage of this high-throughput, minimum-latency protocol.

These new products provide very competitive alternatives to other sFPDP products on the market. The inclusion of a user-configurable Virtex-6 FPGA allows customers to extend the factory-installed sFPDP functions in order to perform custom signal processing for both inbound and outbound data streams.

The Model 71611 XMC can be installed on any XMC carrier making this an attractive option for OpenVPX, PCI Express and CompactPCI platforms. The 71611 has 2GB of DDR3 SDRAM for FIFO memory buffering of DMA packets and an optional PMC P14 connector for custom I/O through 20 pairs of LVDS connections to the FPGA.

The Model 7811 native PCIe (PCI Express) card can be installed on any motherboard with PCIe card slots. Both models support Gen. 2 PCIe and offer a range of Virtex-6 devices so developers can add FPGA IP to match custom-processing requirements.

The Models 71611 and 7811 are fully compatible with the VITA 17.1 Serial FPDP specification in all modes and operational features. They support 1.0625, 2.125, and 2.5 Gbaud link rates and options for multi- and single-mode optical interfaces. Programmable modes include flow control in both receive and transmit directions, CRC support, and copy/loop modes.

The Model 71611 is also offered in other formats. For information on these, click the Model number/format below:
