Digital signal processing managed switch
The VT971 is a rugged conduction cooled module which follows the VITA specification for environmental applications.
The VT971 is a rugged conduction cooled module which follows the VITA specification for environmental applications. The module accepts 32 high-speed SERDES to the field programmable gate array (FPGA), which is supported by two 64-bit wide banks for DDR4 memory for the total of 16GB of memory. The FPGA is integrated with a Layer three managed Gbe/10GbE Ethernet switch, which provides 26 egress port via front of the module. The module supports 24 GbE through RJ-45 (10/100/1000Base-T) and dual 10GbE via SFP+. The VT971 has a quad core ARM processor utilizing four Cortex-A53 cores running at 1.4GHz. The CPU manages the layer three switch and interfaces to the FPGA via PCIe. The VT971 is ideal for application where the signals are digitized at a remote location and processed at a different site. The module comes only in conduction cool and operates with input power of 10 to 36Vdc.
