V6063 3U VPX Versal® ASoC FPGA Optical I/O Module

The V6063 is a next generation heterogeneous embedded computing 3U VPX module featuring the Xilinx® Versal® Adaptive System-on-Chip (ASoC), rugged optical and electrical high-speed IO, and SOSA aligned profile options. The V6063 provides options for Versal® Prime or Versal® AI Core part selection. In a single 3U VPX card, the V6063 provides three 100G optical interfaces (300Gbps aggregate, large FPGA fabric, ARM processor cores, and optional AI engines.

The V6063 excels at high-bandwidth interface applications where data is processed or pre-processed locally and then distributed across the VPX backplane or optical interfaces. Use cases include sensor interface, data processing, data distribution, and FPGA co-processing applications. Radar, signals intelligence, electronic warfare, video, storage, medical imaging, and embedded communications systems all can benefit from the V6063 module.

By leveraging the Versal® hard silicon Ethernet interfaces, PCIe controllers, DMA engines, and associated software drivers, Xilinx® has enabled a robust ecosystem for high-bandwidth Ethernet performance. In addition to the Ethernet interfaces described, the FPGA fabric provided within the ASoC part is capable of hosting New Wave DV IP cores for Fibre Channel, ARINC-818, sFPDP, Aurora, and others. This makes the V6063 an ideal hardware platform for mixed interface protocol needs or protocol bridging applications.

The V6063 serves as a standalone data interface and processing solution in a single 3U VPX module. The V6063 provides twelve (12) full duplex optical ports supporting from 1-25Gb/s per lane, FPGA fabric resources, ARM processor cores, and AI/ML hard cores. The V6063 can also be used adjacent to CPUs and/or GPUs in a 3U VPX system. In this arrangement, the adjacent CPUs/GPUs are unburdened of the data interface overhead and can be dedicated to running high value applications and algorithms with the V6063 feeding them data directly across the backplane.
