VPX board for HPEC enhanced by fiber-optic backplane interfaces

QUIMPER, France. Interface Concept has launched its IC-FEP-VPX3f board, a new high-speed commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) 3U VPX FPGA board based on the Xilinx Kintex UltraScale technology, aimed at the signal-processing-intensive applications of high-performance embedded computing (HPEC) systems.

The board is VITA 66.5-compliant; the VITA 66.5 standard enhances VPX capabilities by offering fiber-optic interfaces on the board’s backplane connectors, which the IC-FEP-VPX3f has 12 of.

The IC-FEP-VPX3f board integrates a user-programmable Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA (KU060, KU85, or KU115) based on 20 nm technology and which provides higher performance than its predecessors while maintaining low power consumption; 8 GB of 64-bit wide DDR4 (2 x bank of 4 GB); 2 x 128 Mbytes of QSPI flash for bitstream storage; 1 x 128 Mbytes of QSPI flash for user data storage; and one Xilinx Artix -7 transceiver optimized FPGA.
