GE Intelligent Platforms is developing a range of digital receiver, digital transceiver and FPGA processor products based on the Virtex-6 FPGA family from Xilinx.
The plan is then develop products based on Xilinx’s 7 series devices including the Virtex-7 family.
These platforms will provide the processing performance and advanced technology required by processing applications such as software defined radio, signals intelligence, tactical communications and radar.
The company has set up an ‘early adopter program’ to allow companies and organizations to obtain early access to and information about these new products under non-disclosure agreement.
"FPGA technology is at the heart of the most demanding military applications, and customers continue to push its boundaries,” said Jon Jones, Technology Leader, Sensor Processing at GE Intelligent Platforms. “They are looking for more raw processing performance, greater capacity, higher speed I/O and lower power consumption – and these latest-generation devices from Xilinx will allow us to respond to those requirements."
