V5054 30-Port 1394b AS5643 PCI Express FPGA Card

The V5054 is the highest density 1394b PCIe card available on the market. The V5054 has been designed specifically for 1394b AS5643 aerospace application development and test stand purposes. The V5054 provides thirty front panel transformer-coupled 1394b ports (optionally the V5054 can be provided without transformer-coupled ports). The host interface provided is Gen3 x 8 PCIe.

Two different link/application layer cores are available from New Wave DV pre-loaded on the V5054:

  1. An industry standard OHCI interface with the New Wave DV addition of hardware-based offload of the AS5643 STOF.
  2. An AS5643 hardware offload engine providing complete packet formation, ASM label checking, and direct DMA with the host.

The thirty front panel ports are perfect for lab environments, emulation environments, or developments where front panel ports are desired.

New Wave DV also offers an optional breakout-panel that cables all 30 ports from the board’s high-density connector to a 19-inch rack-mounted 1U panel populated with industry standard 1394b connectors for easy access to and connector strain relief.
