FDB series, comprising FDB 16/48 and FDB 27/66, are the smallest mid range FPGA modules available on the market, ideal for custom PCIe or stand-alone, size-constrained systems. The FDB modules offer a powerful combination of Intel Arria 10 FPGA with high DRAM performance of up to 10 GB @ 24 GB/s, and up to 16 x 14.2 Gb/s transceivers (2 are Rx only) at an affordable price range. The FDB modules are supported by Gidel’s DRAM controller enabling: 1. Splitting the physical DRAMs into up to 16 separate logical memories, all operating in parallel. 2. Accessing simultaneously each logical memory by multiple sequential ports, each with its own clock and data width. For example, a 128 MB FIFO may be automatically generated by Gidel’s tools utilizing a 128 MB logical memory with a single write port and a single read port.
To reduce risk, development time and time-to-deployment, the FDB modules are supported by state-of-the-art development tools and a PCIe carrier board enabling to start developing immediately the application and FPGA code. For example, a user may start developing an image processing IP using a streaming input from files and sending the IP output toa grabber for display, storage, analyzing, etc.
