GE Intelligent Platforms have released the new SPR507B, four channel serial FPDP interface PMC/XMC module.
It offers a total bandwidth of up to 1.4GB per second and features Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA for high speed serial data transfers.
The interface module is available in either a PMC module for legacy systems or as an XMC module.
It is designed to be more easily deployed in confined spaces, where cooling can be a challenge and where the environment is subject to extremes of heat, shock and vibration.
The interface module allows for fibre lengths up to 10km with the choice of single mode fibre. In addition, it delivers a transfer rate of around 30% and includes 1GB of high speed on-board storage in FIFO configuration.
The architecture of the module allows for each fibre link to be configured independently, providing for multiple baud rates to be simultaneously supported.
