The PCI592 is based on the Xilinx XCKU115 Kintex UltraScale FPGA, which provides 5,520 DSP slices, 75.9 Mb RAM and 1,451,000 logic cells. The FPGA interfaces directly to the FMC DP 0-9 and all FMC LA/HA/HB pairs, making it compatible with a wide range of industry standard VITA-57 modules. The PCI592 provides active cooling of the FPGA and FMC, making it appropriate for power-hungry applications or those requiring temperature stability for good performance.
The FPGA has interface to three DDR4 memory channels (2x 64-bit wide and 1x 32-bit wide).This allows for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing as well as for queuing the data to the host.
The PCI592 has x8 PCIe edge connector routed to the FPGA PCIe Gen3 hard IP block. In addition, 16 uncommitted connection pairs are routed to a dual x8 expansion connector, providing direct connectivity to a neighbouring FPGA (e.g. via Aurora, 10G/40G, SRIO, PCIe) without the need to go through the host.
