The X5-RX is a high performance digitizing and signal processing module for wireless, RADAR and medical imaging applications. The FPGA computing core supports real-time, 200 MHz signal acquisition and processing for channelization, down-conversion and spectral analysis. For digitizing, the module features four simultaneously sampling 16-bit, 200 MSPS A/Ds.
A Xilinx Virtex5 SX95T with 512MB DDR2 DRAM and 4MB QDR-II memory provide a very high performance DSP core that is tightly integrated with the I/O and PCI Express interface. The close integration of the analog IO, memory and host interface with the FPGA enables real-time signal processing at extremely high rates exceeding 300 GMACs per second.
The X5 XMC modules couple Innovative's powerful 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 logic 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.
IP libraries for the FPGA are also available for down-conversion and channelization of up to 4096 simultaneous channels, baseband demodulation for PSK, FSK and MSK, and spectral analysis. MATLAB simulation models are provided that support logic integration in to the X5-RX Framework Logic.
Software tools for host development include C++ libraries and drivers for Windows and Linux. Application examples demonstrating the module features and use are provided.
This extremely versatile module is easily adapted for use in virtually any type of system. Our XMC carrier adapters offer conduction and convection cooling and are available for a range of interfaces including Desktop PCI, Desktop PCI Express, Cabled PCI Express, CompactPCI, and PXI/PXI Express. This module is also readily installed into Innovative Integration's eInstrument Embedded PC, SBC-ComEx Single-Board Computer, and Andale Data Loggers.
