V1153 12-Port Rugged XMC FPGA Card

Purpose-built for extreme, high-bandwidth networking and interface applications, the V1153 XMC card will withstand harsh environments while staying within your SWaP and budget requirements. Despite the challenges posed to engineering architects to create boards with higher port density, bandwidth, and processing power for radar, signal intelligence, remote sensing, medical imaging, and embedded telecommunications systems, New Wave DVÔÇÖs V1153 XMC card satisfies these requirements while dramatically increasing bandwidth and providing plenty of FPGA resources to process data and support PCIe host connectivity. Supporting temperature ranges from -40┬░C to +85┬░C and complying with VITA 20 standards, each V1153 XMC card delivers a reliable, long-lasting solution for your rugged embedded needs.
