March 26, 2018 ‚îÄ Pentek introduced the Model 71800 co-processor module with an XMC PCI Express Gen 3 interface and general purpose I/O using parallel LVDS and gigabit serial ports.
The Jade Architecture is designed to be a streamlined approach to FPGA based boards. Designed to work with Pentek’s Navigator Design Suite of tools, the combination of Jade and Navigator offers users a path to developing and deploying FPGA IP for data and signal processing.
The Model 71800 is pre-loaded with IP modules for DMA engines, a DDR4 memory controller, test signal and metadata generators, data packing and flow control. The 71800 is available with the Kintex UltraScale KU035, KU060 and KU115, supporting a range of processing power. The majority of the Kintex UltraScale FPGA resources are available for customer installed IP for processing and management of I/O.
The Pentek Jade Architecture is based on the Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA. As the central feature of the Jade Architecture, the FPGA has access to all data and control paths, allowing direct access to all board resources. A large 5 GB bank of DDR4 SDRAM is available to the FPGA for custom applications. The x8 PCIe Gen 3 link can sustain 6.4 GB/s data transfers to system memory. Eight additional gigabit serial lanes and 38 LVDS general purpose I/O pairs are available for specialized interfaces.
The Model 71800 XMC module is designed to operate with a range of carrier boards in PCIe, 3U and 6U VPX, AMC, and 3U and 6U CompactPCI form factors, with versions for both commercial and rugged environments.
