With a large number of gates, hardware multipliers and high-speed serial interfaces, FPGAs enable digital signal processing applications including radar, signal intelligence and image processing that require repetitive fixed-point processing. FPGAs perform well in FFTs, pulse compression, filters and digital down converters. In deployed systems, an FPGA's technical advantage translates to smaller, lower-power and lower-cost systems.
Curtiss-Wright COTS small form factor 3U VPX FPGA-based processor cards meet the most demanding SWaP-constrained applications. The Xilinx Virtex-7, Virtex-6 and Virtex-5 FPGA-based processor boards include a wide complement of I/O functionality to balance the processing power of the FPGAs. These boards are well suited for front-end signal or image processing, where sustained data rates and processing performance are important to overall system performance.
