PLDA® and KAYA Instruments® Announce a Tested High Performance CoaXPress System Based on PCIe Kintex-7® FPGA Board
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
PLDA, the industry leader in PCI (News - Alert) Express® IP solutions, and KAYA
Instruments, leading provider of CoaXPress-related products, today
announced a new custom and high-performance CoaXPress system. The
complete system includes PLDA's XpressK7 board based on Xilinx (News - Alert) Kintex-7
FPGA and KAYA's FMC daughtercard with five CoaXPress channels that can
support up to 6.25 Gbps each with total bandwidth of more than 31 Gbps.
CoaXpress is a new digital transmission standard that allows high speed
data from a device, such as a camera, to be transferred to a host, such
as a frame grabber. Each CoaXPress link supports up to 6.25 Gbps data
rates, along with device power up to 13W and device control at 20 Mbps -
all over a single coax cable. For very fast devices, the links can be
aggregated to provide multiples of the single coax bandwidth. Long cable
lengths are supported - up to 40 meters at 6.25 Gbps and over 100 meters
at 3.125 Gbps.
Targeted for Machine Vision Industry, the CoaXPress
interface is positioned to allow system developers the flexibility of
Gigabit Ethernet cable distances while attaining bandwidth higher than
that of Camera Link (Full).
Board is a Xilinx Kintex-7 based board, featuring partial HPC FMC
and DDR3 SODIMM connectors. It has been designed for prototyping and
deployment and provides great flexibility in term of features. PCIe 2.0
IP or PCIe 3.0 soft IP is included and XpressK7 is multi-certified
(REACH / ROHS / CE) and produced in an ISO9001 factory.
KAYA Instruments' FMC daughtercard includes the CoaXPress FPGA IP Cores
for both Device and Host.
is available now from PLDA. The FMC CoaXPress daughtercard is available
now from KAYA Instruments.
