June 18 2019 - Abaco Systems announced the VP430 Development Kit, which is designed to enable application developers to start on the creation, debugging and optimization of electronic warfare applications. The VP430 Development Kit includes a VPX370 development platform, pre-integrated with a 3U VPX SBC329 single board computer, and the VP430 Direct RF Processing System.
The VP430 is a 3U VPX COTS solution featuring the Xilinx ZU27DR RF system-on-chip (RFSoC) technology. It is also a dense analog FPGA DSP board, with eight ADC and DACsynchronized channels, and features the ability to synchronize multiple boards for even larger system applications.
Designed for advanced electronic warfare applications including MIMO (multiple input/output), beamforming, sensor processing and radar signal processing, the VP430 enables the use of fewer boards and less power.I
The VPX370 is a 6-slot system developed specifically for aerospaceand defense applications. Its modular architecture enables users to add FPGA and I/O to the base configuration, addressing many application requirements such as digital RF memory (DRFM), synchronous multi-channel MIMO systems, software defined radio (SDR) and more.Its flexibility means that customers can integrate their in-house developed 3U VPX boards.
