VP868 Dual UltraScale 6U VPX

Dual FMC+ Sites, On Board Zynq Processor, Open VPX

  • Description

      The VP868 is a high performance 6U OpenVPX (VITA-65) compliant plug-in module with advanced digital signal processing capabilities. At the center of the VP868 is a Zynq dual Arm-9 device for processing offload and board management. The VP868 processing power comes from two Xilinx UtlraScale FPGAs with over 100Gb/s duplex inter-chip communication bandwidth. An optional storage and I/O expansion module is available supporting SATA/PCIe solid state drive technologies. The VP868 includes flexible I/O with two VITA 57.4 compliant FMC+ sites. The board includes support for both Kintex and Virtex UltraScale devices with a migration path to UltraScale+ devices. The VP868 is ideal for applications requiring both high performance processing and I/O with the ability to scale from the lab to deployed rugged environments.
