New Line of OpenVPX Products with Lower Power Consumption and Cost

Pentek recently announced the 52xxx board family of power- and cost-reduced versions of the 53xxx family of products. These compact 3U OpenVPX software radio modules incorporate Xilinx Virtex-6 or Virtex-7 FPGAs for on-board signal processing. The 52xxx boards represent a complete family of ruggedized and commercial grade boards for high-performance military and avionics applications utilizing the industry’s most advanced FPGA technology.

By combining processing, data conversion, and preconfigured functions, the 52xxx family is suitable for such applications as SIGINT and COMINT receivers for UAVs, airborne communication transceivers and radar countermeasures, shipboard diversity transceivers and armored vehicle anti-IED systems. The 15-watt power savings boosts packaging densities, processing efficiencies and overall system performance.

Pentek customers using the 52xxx series can now achieve a substantial savings in their power and cost budgets without taking a hit on performance.

In addition, the 52xxx OpenVPX products benefit from a parallel offering of functionally-equivalent PCI Express cards. This way, customers can jump start their development effort in a low-cost desktop PC, and then deploy 3U OpenVPX 52xxx boards in the final application system.

Pentek’s 52xxx OpenVPX boards feature ruggedized construction and extended temperature options—essential for military equipment. The products are available in commercial and rugged packages, with aircooled and conduction-cooled options. The boards support PCIe x4 over the VPX P1 connector, a popular configuration for 3U OpenVPX modules. The 52xxx boards are fully compatible with Pentek’s 53xxx 3U OpenVPX boards which include a fully programmable serial fabric crossbar switch.

The 52xxx family provides developers with a high level of processing power. Pentek installs numerous signal processing, data acquisition and control functions in the Virtex FPGA to support popular radar and communications applications.
