Traquair Unveils CompactPCI Board with 32MGates of Virtex-II FPGA

9/25/2003 - Traquair Data Systems, Inc. introduced the HERON HECPCI9 6U CompactPCI board, offering developers an impressive 32M Gates of Virtex®-II FPGA resource in a single cPCI slot. It targets computationally intensive real-time applications, such as software defined radios (SDR), industrial imaging, automation, and sonar.

The modular hardware architecture of the HECPCI9 provides four HERON module slots for adding FPGA as well as DSP and I/O resources. Each HERON FPGA module adds a Virtex-II FPGA of up to 8 Million Gate Density with up to 512Mbytes of SDRAM. Optional DSP and I/O modules allow the FPGA resource to be complemented by TMS320C6000TM DSP processors as well as fully integrated 12, 14, and 16-bit analog interfaces.

For extreme processing requirements, multiple HECPCI9 boards can be combined to form large multi-board configurations, with each board’s FPGA, DSP and I/O modules inter-connected within a high-bandwidth (400Mbyte/sec) network. Users are then free to arbitrarily combine FPGAs, DSPs, and I/O interfaces on a greater scale to accommodate extreme performance requirements.
