Pentek Expands OpenVPX Product Line While Reducing Power Requirements and Costs

*Rugged, conduction-cooled OpenVPX boards with Xilinx FPGAs *for demanding military and avionics applications *18 diverse 3U OpenVPX products to available *Readily integrate custom FPGA IP *15 Watt power savings with 20% reduction in costs

Upper Saddle River, NJ, August 28, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Pentek, Inc., today announced the 52xxx board family as power- and cost-reduced versions of the 53xxx family of products. These compact 3U OpenVPX software radio modules incorporate Xilinx Virtex-6 and Virtex-7 FPGAs for on-board signal processing. The 52xxx boards represent a complete family of ruggedized and commercial grade boards for high-performance military and avionics applications utilizing the industry’s most advanced FPGA technology.

By combining processing, data conversion and preconfigured functions, the 52xxx family is suitable for such applications as signal intelligence (SIGINT) and communications intelligence (COMINT) receivers for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), airborne communication transceivers and radar countermeasures, shipboard diversity transceivers and armored vehicle anti-improvised explosive devices (IED) systems. The 15-watt power savings boosts packaging densities, processing efficiencies and overall system performance.

According to Rodger Hosking, vice-president of Pentek, "Customers using the 52xxx series can now achieve a substantial savings in their power and cost budgets without taking a hit on performance." He added, “In addition, our 52xxx OpenVPX products benefit from a parallel offering of functionally-equivalent PCI Express cards. This way, customers can jump start their development effort in a low-cost desktop PC and then deploy 3U OpenVPX 52xxx boards in the final application system.”

Pentek’s 52xxx OpenVPX modules support VPX REDI (VITA 48) and feature the ruggedized construction and extended temperature options essential for military equipment. The products are available in commercial and rugged packages, with air-cooled and conduction-cooled options. The modules support PCIe x4 over the VPX P1 connector, a popular configuration for 3U OpenVPX modules. The 52xxx modules are fully compatible with Pentek’s 53xxx 3U OpenVPX modules, which include a fully programmable serial fabric crossbar switch.
