AcroPack APA7 FPGA

Supported Architectures: PCIe, VPX, XMC
Compatible Operating Systems: VxWorks, Windows, Linux

The APA7-200 series provides an FPGA-based user-configurable bridge between a host processor and a custom digital interface via PCI Express. Developed for adaptive filtering & processing applications, these boards feature a best in class Xilinx® Artix®-7 interface to deliver the industry’s lowest power and high performance.

The APA7-200 series modules are 70mm long. This is 19.05mm longer than the full-length mini-PCIe card at 50.95mm. The board’s width is the same as an mPCIe board of 30mm and they use the same mPCIe standard board hold down standoff and screw keep out areas.

A down facing 100 pin Samtec connector mates with the carrier card. Fifty of these pins are available for the field I/O signals.

AcroPack XMC, PCI Express, and VPX bus carrier cards get the FPGA into your application fast with plug and play configuration plus interrupt support. AcroPack carriers offer a unique secure plug-in connection to the I/O boards eliminating the customary flimsy cable connection.

Acromag provides software support packages for embedded applications running on Linux, Windows, or VxWorks operating systems. These libraries provide generic routines to handle reads, writes, interrupts, and other functions. Demonstration programs enable the developer to quickly exercise the I/O modules before attaching the routines to the application program. This diagnostic tool can save hours of troubleshooting and debugging.
