3U VPX Integrated Development System


[wpdm_package id=’4716′]

The SDR-7001 Integrated Development System (IDS) is a solution designed to help you begin developing your VPX application immediately. The standard configuration provides two A/D input channels, two D/A output channels, Virtex-5 based FPGA processing, and a powerful Intel Core 2 Duo/Core i7 General Purpose Processor. The system is pre-confi gured and tested in an OpenVPX chassis with Spectrum’s quicComm development kit which includes a Linux board support package and software design kit, board and system-level examples, and FPGA application reference designs.

Features and Benefits

  • Dual 300 MSPS, 14-bit DAC
  • 2 x Xilinx Virtex-5 FX130T User FPGA each with 512 MB External SDRAM
  • Intel Core 2 Duo/Core i7 General Purpose Processor
  • On-board clock for 200 MSPS sampling rate
  • Internal or External sample clock or External 10 MHz Reference
  • 2 x 34-pin General Purpose I/O (LVTTL, LVDS)
  • Multi-board synchronization for phase coherent sampling
  • VPX PCI Express x4 ports via backplane
  • 5-slot air-cooled chassis
  • Compliance with OpenVPX (VITA 65) and VPX (VITA 46)
  • Pre-integrated and confi gured with quicComm Development Kit that includes Linux BSP, board and system level examples, FPGA application reference design, FPGA interface libraries, and example code
  • Not subject to US ITAR control
  • Electronic Warfare (EW)
  • Software Defi ned Radio (SDR)
  • Military Communications (MILCOM)
  • Signals Intelligence (SIGINT)
  • Communications Intelligence (COMINT)
  • Whitespace and Cognitive Radio
Application Note

Spectrum’s SDR-2010 PCI Express (PCIe) system and SDR-7001 3U VPX system are high-performance Linux-based signal processing platforms that share a common base architecture that enables software portability. Users can develop their applications in a PC-based environment then migrate to a different hardware platform with virtual transparency to the software. This enables the applications to be rapidly deployed on a wide range of form factors from PC/Server-based to OpenVPX air-cooled format to rugged conduction-cooled OpenVPX.

This application note describes how an application developed on the SDR-2010 can be easily migrated to the SDR-7001.
