V3021 Dual Channel 10 Gigabit Ethernet FPGA AMC

Available in single-width AdvancedMC form factor, this high-performance packet processing module features dual 10 Gigabit Ethernet SFP+ optical ports and is available in a range of Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA options providing scalable processing performance. Its memory architecture is based on multiple independent high-speed SDRAM and SRAM memory interfaces that enable advanced 10 Gigabit Ethernet network traffic processing. It supports PCI Express or XAUI fat pipes for data exchange. The V3021 comes standard with expressXG Framework Lite, an advanced FPGA development infrastructure that gives programmers the advantage to develop their own high-bandwidth applications rapidly and efficiently.
