VMETRO, represented by Dedicated Systems Australia , has expanded its range of high-performance PMC/XMC modules with the SFM Quad Serial FPDP module.

The SFM supports up to four simultaneous serial FPDP (VITA 17.1-2003) channels.

Until now, Serial FPDP cards have typically had just one channel. This new four channel interface card provides a higher level of functional density without creating a bottleneck obtaining the data to and from the baseboard.

The functional density and high performance is especially important for high performance data recorders, high-channel density sensor arrays and high-end DSP systems.

The simplicity and wide support for Serial FPDP makes it ideal for a wide range of real-time embedded computer solutions.

In order to achieve optimal performance, VMETRO implemented the SFM with separate DMA controllers for each channel.

The SFM PMC module supports PCI-X data transfers at speeds up to 133MHz. The SFM XMC module supports PCI Express via the XMC connectors and provides the full 2.5Gbps data rate per channel. Using PCI-X and PCI Express this way enables more than one sFPDP transfer to occur simultaneously.

The product is available in single, dual and quad versions to better fit the application.

Features include:

* 1, 2 or 4 Serial FPDP channels

* Independent DMA controllers for each Serial FPDP channel

* 1.0625, 2.125 and 2.5Gbps PCI Express link speed per channel in XMC form factor

* 64Mbyte FIFO per channel with programmable elasticity

* VxWorks and Linux support.
