Innovative Integration, a supplier of signal processing and data acquisition hardware and software solutions, announced the XA-160M.
The XA-160M is an XMC I/O module featuring two 16-bit, 160 MSPS A/D channels and two 16-bit, 600 MSPS DAC channels designed for high speed stimulus-response, ultrasound, and servo control applications.
Data acquisition control, signal processing, buffering, and system interface functions are implemented in a Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA device. Two 256Mx16 memories provide data buffering and FPGA computing memory.
“The XA-160M provides an extremely economical solution for real-time, FPGA-accelerated stimulus-response applications such as RADAR, LIDAR, optical servo or medical scanning. When mated with one of our rugged, embedded PCs, the XA-160M becomes an autonomous, self-booting instrument with dual, 10 GbE connectivity – perfect for distributed instrumentation,” says Jim Henderson, President of Innovative Integration.
The logic can be fully customized with Innovative’s FrameWork Logic toolset and either high-level synthesis (HLS) or VHDL within Xilinx Vivado. Alternately, the MATLAB BSP supports real-time hardware-in-the- loop development us ing the graphical, block diagram Simulink environment with Xilinx System Generator.
The PCIe, 4-lane, gen2 interface supports continuous data rates up to 1700 MB/ s between the module and the host. A flexible data packet system implemented over the PCIe interface provides both high data rates to the host that is readily expandable for custom applications.
