V8200 FPGA Development Platform

The V8200 is a fully integrated MicroTCA platform that is ideal for quickly developing high-performance 10 Gigabit Ethernet applications. It features two V3021 AdvancedMC modules supporting a range of Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA options for maximum network traffic processing performance. This compact platform provides four 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports and come standard with expressXG Framework Lite, an advanced FPGA development infrastructure that gives programmers the advantage to develop high-bandwidth applications rapidly and efficiently.  The V8200 is equipped with a system controller based on the Intel Core 2 Duo processor running Fedora Core Linux. A high-performance MCH provides central management and  10 Gigabit Ethernet switching over a star fabric backplane topology.  In addition, the V8200 provides direct slot-to-slot fabric connections for communication between AdvancedMC modules.
