PCI-104 Carrier (SMT130) and a Virtex XC2VP70 FPGA Module (SMT398-VP)


The SMT298-VP70 is made up of the SMT130 (A PCI104 single site TIM carrier) and a SMT398-VP70 (FPGA Module, Virtex XC2VP70-6; QDRII SRAM ; Rocket I/Os ). This combination gives high performance processing in a compact form factor.

The SMT130 is a single site module carrier developed to provide access to a TIM module over the PCI-104 PCI bus.

Data transfers of 50-100Mbytes per second can be achieved to and from the Global Bus when accessing the SRAM and PCI Bridge, allowing fast data transfers.

The card has an “on-board” JTAG controller which is software compatible with the XDS-510. This allows Code Composer studio and 3L applications to be used to debug/upload software to a DSP TIM.

The SMT398-VP provides a communications platform between a Virtex-II Pro VP70 FPGA and the on-board Double Data Rate Dual Port QDR II memory (at frequencies of up to 200MHz), Rocket IOs for high speed serial connections (capable of various high-speed serial standards), LVDS connections for high speed parallel connections and LVTTL connections and connectors.
