4 Channel 200 MHz 16-bit A/D with Virtex-7 FPGA VPX Onyx™ Board (Model 53760)

Compatible Operating Systems: Windows, Linux, VxWorks
Supported Architectures: XMC, PCIe, cPCI, VPX, Rugged

The 53760 includes a Virtex-7 FPGA and four A/Ds and four banks of memory. It features built-in support for PCI Express Gen. 3 over the 3U VPX backplane. Its built-in data capture features offer an ideal turnkey solution as well as a platform for developing and deploying custom FPGA processing IP.

As the central feature of the board architecture, the FPGA has access to all data and control paths, enabling factoryinstalled functions including data multiplexing, channel selection, data packing, gating, triggering and memory control. The Onyx architecture organizes the FPGA as a container for data processing applications where each function exists as an intellectual property (IP) module.

The 53760 factory-installed functions include four A/D acquisition IP modules for simplifying data capture and data transfer. IP modules for DDR3 SDRAM memories, a controller for all data clocking and synchronization functions, a test signal generator, and a PCIe interface complete the factory-installed functions and enable the 53760 to operate as a complete turnkey solution without the need to develop any FPGA IP.

For applications that require specialized function, users can install their own custom IP for data processing. Pentek GateFlow FPGA Design Kits include all of the factory installed modules as documented source code. Developers can integrate their own IP with the Pentek factory-installed functions or use the GateFlow kit to completely replace the Pentek IP with their own.
