CHAMP-FX3 for digital signal and image processing applications

The CHAMP-FX3 is a 'next generation' module in Curtiss Wright Controls' range of user programmable fpga based computing products. It has been designed to meet the needs of challenging embedded high performance digital signal and image processing applications.

The device combines the dense processing resources of two large Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGAs with an AltiVec enabled dual core Freescale Power Architecture MPC8640D processor, on a rugged 6U OpenVPX compatible (VITA 65) form factor module.

An assortment of rear panel I/O and memories have been implemented, including a Serial RapidIO (SRIO) based switching fabric, multiple high speed serial links, and 20 pairs of LVDS links to the backplane that can be used to support Camera Link or other high speed parallel interface. The two FMC sites have been enhanced to support the next generation of FMC cards with 80 pairs of differential signals.
