Innovative Integration, a Molex Company and supplier of signal processing and data acquisition hardware and signal processing solutions, announced the COPious-PXIe. The 8HP PXIe compatible plug-in card employs the Xilinx Z7045 (Zynq) system on-chip processor which provides dual, floating-point, ARM A9 CPUs and a user-programmable FPGA fabric.
COPious-PXIe incorporates a high pin-count VITA 57.1 -compliant FMC module site, compatible with Innovative’s range of FMC modules and tools. FMC peripherals are directly controlled by the onboard FPGA fabric, enabling deep integration of user-customized digital signal processing algorithms.
Consequently, real-time, DSP and mixed-signal applications such as software-defined radio, RADAR, LIDAR, optical control and other demanding applications may be addressed, even in conjunction with conventional PXIe system controllers running non-real-time operating systems such as Windows or Linux.
“This single-board computer/adapter adds a portfolio of DAQ FMC modules and tools into the PXIe eco-system. Customers can implement custom control, communications and analytical algorithms within the Zynq’s on-chip FPGA fabric to perform real-time signal processing of signals with up to 500 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth” said Jim Henderson, President of Innovative Integration.
COPious-PXIe runs bare-metal C/C++ applications in core 1 and the PetaLinux core/applications core 0 and, providing zero-overheat
interrupt processing and real-time code execution in conjunction with high-level Ethernet, USB and disk connectivity.
PetaLinux boots rapidly from an on-board eMMC flash drive, providing autonomous operation and fast local storage.
The product can be tailored to a variety of markets including embedded instrumentation, remote, autonomous IO, mobile
instrumentation, and distributed data acquisition.
