VadaTech's PCI516, PCI592 and PCI595 cards are carriers in the PCI Express form factor and are designed to bring commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) PCIe systems up to date with field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) or for integrating high-end FPGA mezzanine cards (FMCs). All three cards provide direct connections to neighboring cards, avoiding the need to stage data through the host processor, so optimizing throughput and minimizing latency for high-performance applications. Active cooling is provided for both the FPGA and FMC, making the modules ideal for power-hungry applications or those requiring temperature stability for good performance.

The PCI516 features a Xilinx Virtex-7 690T FPGA, which provides 3,600 digital signal processor (DSP) slices, 52,920Kb RAM and 690,000 logic cells. The PCI592 features a Xilinx Kintex UltraScale XCKU115 FPGA, which provides 5,520 DSP slices, 75.9 Mb RAM and 1,451,000 logic cells. The PCI595 features the Xilinx Virtex UltraScale XCVU440 FPGA, which provides 2,880 DSP slices, 88.6 Mb RAM and 5,541,000 logic cells. The FPGAs on these new PCIe cards are supported by 64-bit wide memory banks, which allows for large buffer sizes to be stored during processing as well as for queuing the data to the host.
