PCIe XMC module features two 1.5 GSPS, 8-bit A/D channels

Simi Valley, Calif.—Innovative Integration is offering the X5-GSPS, an XMC I/O module featuring the National Semiconductor 1.5 GSPS ADC08D1500 dual-channel, 8-bit A/D converters connected to a Virtex5 FPGA computing core, DRAM and SRAM memory plus an eight lane PCI Express host interface.

A Xilinx Virtex5 SX95T with 512 MB DDR2 DRAM and 4MB QDR-II memory provide a high performance DSP core for demanding applications such as emerging wireless standards. The close integration of the analog I/O, memory and host interface with the FPGA enables real-time signal processing at high rates exceeding 300 GMACs per second.

The X5-GSPS provides engineers a turnkey, modular product suited to RF I/Q demodulation applications or other wideband analog signal capture applications. IP blocks available from Innovative can be embedded within the FPGA to perform digital down-conversion and decoding, unburdening the host of computationally intensive processing functions.

The X5 XMC modules couple Innovative's Velocia architecture with a high performance, 8-lane PCI Express interface that provides over 1 GB/s sustained transfer rates to the host. Private links to host cards with > 1.6 GB/s capacity using P16 are provided for system integration. The X5 family can be fully customized using VHDL and MATLAB using the FrameWork Logic toolset. The MATLAB BSP supports real-time hardware-in-the-loop development using the graphical, block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator.

Software tools for host development include C++ libraries and drivers for Windows and Linux.
