Houston, Tex.VMETRO and Impulse Accelerated Technologies Inc. have released the V5+C DSP development kit, an advanced platform for rapid prototyping and algorithm development.
The kit, which includes the latest-generation Impulse C-to-VHDL compiler tools and a VMETRO PMC module based on the Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA, allows military and industrial system developers to hardware-accelerate DSP algorithms and quickly prototype on FPGA within an ANSI C environment.
With the V5+C kit, software application developers who may be less
familiar with low-level VHDL design methods can easily move ANSI C
algorithms to an FPGA-accelerated platform. Experienced hardware
developers benefit as well due to a faster path to a working prototype
from higher-level C code.
The VMETRO PMC-FPGA05 included in the V5+C kit is a PMC module
with a large-capacity Xilinx Virtex-5 XC5VLX110 FPGA and customizable
digital front-panel I/O. The powerful FPGA is boosted by multiple
banks of QDR and DDR memory to ensure that processing capabilities of
the PMC-FPAGA05 are maximized. The PMC-FPGA05 was designed for
embedded DSP applications where there is a need for flexible,
customizable I/O and FPGA processing on the data stream.
There are a number of I/O adapter modules available from VMETRO that can be plugged onto the PMC-FPGA05, including a dual channel 105MSPS, 14-bit ADC; a dual channel 210MSPS, 14-bit DAC; an FPDP-II interface; a 33 channel RS485/422 interface; a Camera Link interface; an L-Band receiver; and two different LVDS interfaces. Customers can also develop their own I/O adapter modules to meet their custom I/O requirements.
