Abstract:

Over the last decade, the performance capabilities of FPGAs have increased exponentially. Leading vendors such as Xilinx and Altera have improved the functionality of their reconfigurable devices through the inclusion of memory, processors, multi-gigabit transceivers, and multipliers to the basic FPGA architecture. The result is a flexible, high performance processing device able to perform low latency, parallel processing tasks with low power consumption. In order to exploit the obvious benefits of FPGA technology in embedded systems, Nallatech has developed a range of FPGA-centric COTS products based upon the companys modular DIME-II architecture capable of TeraOPS performance. Customers using Nallatech products such as the BenNUEY-PC104 are able to harness the full capability of advanced Virtex-II and Virtex-II Pro Xilinx FPGAs. With a range of motherboard form factors including PC104plus, VME, PCI and cPCI and a catalogue of plug and play DIME-II modules, embedded system developers can quickly build a flexible, high performance processing system tailored to the requirements of a specific application.
