SAN JOSE, Calif. – BEEcube Inc. (Fremont, Calif.) is planning moves both into the data center and software-defined radio on the road map for its FPGA development platform to be shown at the Embedded Systems Conference.
The company plans to rack and stack its boards that house multiple Xilinx Virtex FPGAs. The work will create systems-level accelerators that could be used in tandem with traditional severs to run specialty apps, said Joseph Rothman, senior vice president of marketing at BEEcube.
In a separate effort, it is also planning to plug high-precision, high data rate analog-digital converters that support multiple Nyquest rates into the mezzanine slots of the boards. The resulting digital RF development systems will be used for testing cognitive and software-defined radio, radar and MIMO designs.
BEEcube has sold about 175 of its development systems so far. Since June it has targeted commercial users including Huawei and Oracle for its BEEcube 4 boards launched last June. The company was spun out of a research project at the University of California at Berkeley four years ago with funding from its founders and has since become profitable.
