IC-FEP-VPX3c Xilinx Virtex®-7 3U VPX board with FMC Site

Xilinx Virtex®-7 3U VPX board with FMC Site

The IC-FEP-VPX3c expands our Front End Processing family with a solution based on Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGAs to respond to seemingly insatiable bandwidth demand.

Designed for applications requiring a very high level of computing power in a compact 3U form factor, the IC-FEP-VPX3c board offers the highest bandwidth with the lowest power consumption.
