FPGAs have revolutionized the way DSP subsystems are configured. With a large number of gates, hardware multipliers and high-speed serial interfaces, FPGAs enable sophisticated (fixed typo) applications, including radar, signal intelligence and image processing. These applications rely on repetitive fixed-point processing that can be expressed in highly parallel form.
6U modules are targeted for applications which can accommodate the size of 6U modules and need multiple FPGAs. In general one 6U module can fit more logic than two 3U modules. See 3U FPGA processors if smaller form-factor modules are needed.
FPGAs perform exceptionally well in FFTs, pulse compression, filters, and digital up/down converters. In deployed systems, an FPGA's technical advantage translates to smaller, lower-power and lower-cost systems. Curtiss-Wright Defense Solutions offers a variety of COTS 6U VPX FPGA-based processor cards to meet the most demanding applications. The 6U FPGA processor boards include a wide complement of I/O functionality.
FPGA modules can be the most challenging products to develop due to the increasing power of the FPGAs and related devices and the many high speed interfaces. Curtiss-Wright includes innovative design features and performs thorough validation to ensure rugged FPGA products will function as advertised in rugged, deployed applications.
