Based on Altera’s Stratix IV GX FPGA, BittWare’s 4S-XMC (4SXM) is a single-width XMC, designed to provide powerful FPGA processing and high-speed serial I/O capabilities to VME, VXS, VPX, cPCI, AdvancedTCA, or PCI Express carrier boards. The 4SXM features a high-density, low-power Altera Stratix IV GX FPGA, which was designed specifically for serial I/O-based applications and is PCI SIG compliant for PCI Express Gen1 and Gen2. Four small form-factor pluggable (SFP) compact optical transceivers are available on the front panel. Eight multi-gigabit serial lanes supporting PCI Express, Serial RapidIO, and 10 GigE are available via the board’s rear panel as well as 44 general purpose digital I/O signals. The 4SXM also provides QDRII+ and Flash.
