X5-COM Overview

The X5-COM is an XMC IO module featuring four 4.125 Gbps serial ports directly connected to a Virtex5 FPGA computing core with DRAM and SRAM memory, and PCI Express host interface. With supporting IP, the X5-COM is ideal for computational intensive applications for Ethernet packet processing, encryption and test.

A Xilinx Virtex5 FPGA with 512MB DDR2 DRAM and 4MB QDR-II SRAM memory provides a very high performance computing core.

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 > 800 MB/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. 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.
