CompactPCI Serial board

31 July 2019 Computer/Embedded Technology

The Pentek SY8-Cyclone is a CompactPCI Serial peripheral board, equipped with a powerful FPGA and up to ten RJ45 connectors for 100BASE-TX Ethernet.

With its PCI Express x4 interface, the Cyclone-V FPGA can be used, for example, as an Ethernet NIC, switch, router or gateway. Industrial Ethernet real-time protocols and custom specific applications may be integrated.

The 4HP front panel width solution provides five RJ45 connectors. As an option, the board is available with ten Ethernet ports in an 8HP width front panel. A reference design based on Quartus is available as a starting point for customers.

The Intel (formerly Altera) 5CGXFC7C6F23I7N Cyclone-V FPGA operates over the industrial temperature range and contains 150K logic elements, and also hard IPs for the PCI Express controller. In addition to non-volatile I2C memory, 512 MB DDR3L soldered RAM is wired on-board to the Cyclone-V FPGA.

As an option, the SY8-Cyclone card can accommodate a mezzanine module with a secondary, identical FPGA. This would allow either safety-critical applications by redundancy, or additional logic elements for custom specific solutions.
