4DSP (Austin, TX) has announced two new additions to its Compact Embedded System (CES) line. The CES820 and the ruggedized CESCC820 variant both feature an upgraded Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA and support for the new SDAccel development environment. These standalone, small form factor systems are complete and generic processing platforms for data acquisition, signal processing, and communication. The powerful UltraScale FPGA provides a flexible processing backbone for interfacing to the FMC site, CPU, and external DDR3 SDRAM.

The CES820 enclosure measures about five inches per side and weighs less than 1 Kg. Designed with Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) in mind, this system provides a quad-core, lowpower Atom CPU that is tightly coupled to the UltraScale FPGA and FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC - VITA 57.1).

The ruggedized CESCC820 version features a slightly larger, more robust, and vibration-resistant chassis which offers conduction cooling and space for additional FMC modules. It optionally offers a dual 10Gb Ethernet port for high-bandwidth applications in the military and aerospace markets.
