ANNAPOLIS, MD -- May 5, 2008 -- iVeia, LLC today announced the availability of the Titan-V5e, a small form factor processing module that utilizes the newly released Virtex-5 FXT FPGA from Xilinx. The Titan-V5e combines the embedded PowerPC 440 processor of the Virtex-5 FXT with iVeia’s Velocity-SoC technology, enabling the rapid development of high-performance signal and image processing applications in an ultra-small form factor.
The Titan-V5e is the latest addition to iVeia's Titan family of credit card size COTS processing modules. The new module packs a Virtex-5 FX70T FPGA with a 1000+ DMIPs hardened PowerPC processor, three configurable banks of DDR2 SDRAM, two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces, up to 32GB of on-board FLASH, a flexible I/O interface, and a scalable backplane interface. Virtex-5 SXT configurations are also available.
The unique System-on-a-Chip (SoC) architecture provides the compute power of both an advanced microprocessor and a state-of-the-art FPGA. “More and more compute-intensive signal and image processing applications are migrating to FPGA-microprocessor hybrid architectures” explains Michael Fawcett, CTO of iVeia. “The advances in the Virtex-5 FXT FPGA enabled iVeia to create a hybrid architecture on a single chip, thereby improving performance and flexibility while reducing size, power, and cost. This makes the Titan-V5e ideal for man-portable applications, robotics and machine vision, unmanned vehicles, smart cameras, and an abundance of other commercial and military applications.”
Industry-specific development kits are available for the Titan-V5e that provide a complete path from development to deployment. Each kit includes iVeia's Velocity-SoC IP core and SDK, an optimized framework and abstraction layer that decouples the FPGA and software design allowing for rapid application development.
iVeia offers a variety of GigaFlex I/O modules for the Titan-V5e. For a complete list and for custom configurations contact iVeia or visit www.iVeia.com.
