Pentek, Inc. has released Model 4207 for high-performance digital signal processing and data-acquisition systems. The board employs Freescale’s MPC8641D dual core PowerPC AltiVec processor and a Xilinx Virtex-4 FX Series FPGA. The company’s fabric-transparent crossbar switch bridges a number of gigabit serial resources including two XMCs, dual VXS ports, dual fiber channel ports, and two optical serial transceivers.

Native protocols support PCI Express, Serial RapidIO, Fiber Channel, and Aurora, accommodated by the crossbar switch. Up to 4GB of fast DDR2 SDRAM simplifies data buffering and boosts real-time signal processing.

Model 4207 offers power, speed, and connectivity in a single-slot solution, making it suited for wideband, data acquisition-and-recording, real-time digital signal-processing, and software-radio applications. High-speed interfaces on the board connect through the switch, so paths can be configured to meet specific requirements.

Pricing starts at $14,725. www.pentek.com Pentek
