XMC Modules

Acromag’s (Wixom, MI) new XMC-7A200 is a XMC mezzanine module enhanced with Xilinx ® Artix® -7 FPGA for low-power consumption and exceptional 128M × 16-bit Quad DDR3 SDRAM processing performance. Reconfigurable Artix-7 FPGA is possible via a direct download into the Flash configuration memory over the PCIe bus or the JTAG port. Four-lane high-speed serial interface on rear P15 connector for PCI Express Gen 1/2 (standard), Serial RapidI/O, and Xilinx Aurora implementations are supported. Rear I/O provides 8-lane high-speed serial interface on the P16 XMC port. SelectI/O or LVDS pairs plus global clock pairs direct to FPGA via rear P4 or P16 port. The FPGA serves as a coprocessor applying custom logic and algorithms to streams of remote sensor data.

IR Filter Sets

LASER COMPONENTS (Bedford, NH) has begun introducing pyroelectric and lead salt detectors to the market. With this in mind, they also now offer low-cost accessories such as new IR filter sets. Fourteen standard bandpass filters are sawn up hexagonally and integrated into pluggable filter mounts with an inner diameter of 8.5 mm, with an aperture of 6 mm. Wavelengths range from 3.33 μm to 7.30 μm, having full width half maximum values from 60 nm to 600 nm. These filters use silicon substrates providing blocking to 10μm, with thirteen out of the fourteen filters being angle optimized.
