V1142 Quad-Port 1394b-AS5643 XMC FPGA Card

The V1142 provides a complete 1394b AS5643 interface solution in a XMC form factor. The solution utilizes only one FPGA chip, unlike three or four chip predecessors, allowing for higher port density, with a reduction in size, weight, and power of the interface. This on-board FPGA provides bus control, diagnostics information, interface choices, and customization options not previously available. The V1142 offers four front-panel transformer coupled 1394b ports as well as eight rear-panel non-transformer coupled ports. The host interface provided is available as Gen2 x4 PCIe or 64-bit PCI.
