Integrated Xilinx IP to Form Custom Multi-Channel Fiber Optic Comm System

ASPENLOGIC® integrated three pieces of Xilinx IP to form a stunning data capture and processing engine for its client. 2.5 Gb/s Fiber optic connections between custom, multi-channel ADC/DAC boards and a COTS Avnet evaluation board with a Virtex-5™ SX95T device operating at 250 Mhz delivered high bandwidth connectivity to the proprietary processing engine. The VHDL was designed to replicate a variable number of processing modules and automatically connect them to a variable number of bidirectional Aurora protocol links utilizing SFP optical fiber transceivers.
