The VF360 is a 3U OpenVPX module that leverages on Intel® Stratix® V FPGA andTexas Instruments KeyStone Multicore DSP technology to provide an ultra-highbandwidth processing platform, ideally suited for computation and bandwidthintensive applications such as Radar, Networking, SIGINT, EW, SDR and Video.The Stratix® V FPGA has two banks of dedicated DDR3 and QDRII+ memories foralgorithms with high bandwidth and/or large memory size requirements. Highspeedserial interfaces to the OpenVPX data plane and the FMC site creates abundant FPGA IO throughput.The VF360 acts as an FMC carrier to provide a modular solution that accommodatesa wide range of I/O requirements.The VF360 conforms to the OpenVPX standard and operates as a Payloadmodule with System Controller capability. Both air-cooled and conduction cooledversions are available. Further flexibility is provided through build options to cater for10 different FPGAs from Intel® Stratix® V GX and GS device families.The FM510, an air-cooled Video IO FMC, is used for standard-definition (SD) and high-definition (HD) video processing in combination with IO and control applications. The front panel contains two HD-BNC connectors as primary video interface and a high-density connector for secondary video and IO interfaces.The FM510 supports SDI digital video and PAL/NTSC analogue video, with different order options for the specific primary and secondary video configurations. The -AD option has an analogue video input and a SDI video output on the two front panel (primary) HD-BNC connectors, allowing SD to HD upscaling, combined with user specific video processing.The high-density connector provides RS422, RS485, CAN and discrete IO interfaces. The discrete inputs and outputs are optically isolated and require an external driver voltage. Stereo audio inputs and outputs, as well as a secondary video interface, are also available on the high-density connector
