Interface Concept has announced the IC-FEP-VPX6b, which is a 6U VPX FPGA processing board powered by two Xilinx Virtex-7 and one QorIQ T1042 e5500 quad-core processor.


The VPX hybrid processing engine couples the latest generations of FPGAs and processor, both of them providing a very high level of performance per watt, stated the company. With its QorIQ processor for system management and a PCIe advanced switch to couple the processing nodes, the IC-FEP-VPX6b board expands the flexibility of the two Virtex-7 FPGAs and the VPX high bandwidth serial interfaces.

Two FMC mezzanine sites (VITA 57.1) allow connecting ADC, DAC, general IOs, video, sFPDP or additional FPGA FMC modules. With this combination of a high performance Freescale QorIQ processor, dual FPGAs and FMC sites, the IC-FEP-VPX6b claims to provide the ideal platform for radar, sonar, electronic warfare and other very high demanding digital signal processing applications.

It is available in air-cooled and conduction-cooled grades.
