FM780 – Virtex-7™ XMC with User Definable Memory & I/O

FM780 Virtex-7™ XMC with User Definable Memory & I/O

The very versatile FM780 is a high-performance XMC module based on the Xilinx Virtex-7™. Compliant with industry standard VITA 42.3, the FM780 is designed to be a multi-function, high-performance digital signal processor.


The Virtex-7™ FPGA device available on board is user-programmable and can be used to implement high-end signal processing algorithms. Based on customer requirements, front-panel I/O modules may be added to enable the FM780 to perform data acquisition, waveform generation, high-speed communication, image processing, and to implement various types of complex DSP applications.


With up to 10GBytes of DDR3 SDRAM, the FM780 offers a variety of memory options such as NAND Flash, QDRII SRAM, DDR2 SDRAM, and extra DDR3 SDRAM. Optionally, the user-configurable BLAST™ mounting sites may be populated with JPEG2000 CODECs or a customer’s specific logic devices or circuit designs. The FM780 is available as a conduction-cooled XMC.
