A Xilinx Virtex6 SX315T (LX240T and SX475T options) with 4 banks of 1GB DRAM provide a very high performance DSP core with over 2000 MACs (SX315T). The close integration of the analog IO, memory and host interface with the FPGA enables real-time signal processing at extremely high rates.
The X6-250M has both XMC and PCI interfaces, supporting PCI Express or older PCI systems. The PCI Express interface provides up to 2 GB/s sustained transfers rates through a x8 PCIe Gen2 interface.
System expansion is supported using secondary PCI Express or Aurora port used as a private data channel or second system bus.
The X6-250M power consumption is 18W for typical operation. The module may be conduction cooled using VITA20 standard and a heat spreading plate. Ruggedization levels for wide-temperature operation from -40 to 85C operation and 0.1 g2/Hz vibration. Conformal coating is available.
The FPGA logic can be fully customized using VHDL and Matlab and the Frame Work Logic tool set. The Matlab BSP supports real-time hardware-in-the-loop development using the graphical block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator. IP cores for many wireless and DSP functions such as DDC, PSK/FSK demod, OFDM receiver, correlators and large FFT are available.
Software tools for host development include C libraries and drivers for Windows, Linux and VxWorks. Application examples demonstrating the module features are provided.
Description of Change
The originally used 250MSPS ADC (LTC2157-14) was replaced with 310MSPS (LTC2158-14) part. The new part’s performance is comparable or better in the same ADC sampling rate range. Additionally, the board can now operate at up to 310 MSPS sampling rate (contact Innovative Integration if sampling rates above 250 MSPS is desirable).
The only change to X6-250M original specifications is the Input Range FS
The original specification for Input Range was 1.5 Vp-p.
The present specification for Input Range is 1.32 Vp-p.
