VadaTech Announces new 6U OpenVPX Dual Xilinx Kintex UltraScale™ XCKU115 FPGA Board

VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VPX551 high-speed FPGA compute module for signal processing and beamforming applications.

Henderson, NV - November 8, 2018 - VadaTech, a leading manufacturer of integrated systems, embedded boards, enabling software and application-ready platforms, announces the VPX551 high-speed FPGA compute module for signal processing and beamforming applications.


The VPX551 provides dual Kintex UltraScale™ XCKU115 FPGAs, each providing over 1,400K logic cells, which interface directly to rear I/O via SERDES, LVDS and fiber. Each FPGA is supported by 16GB of 64-bit wide DDR4 (2 x Bank of 8GB) and 1GB flash. The rear panel fiber I/O is via six VITA 66.5 x12 modules, each of which can be populated as transmit or receive. The front panel fiber I/O is via SFP+. The two FPGAs are connected by four SERDES lanes for high speed communication and load sharing, and each has 16 high-speed SERDES routed to P1/P2.

The VPX551 includes Tier 2 platform health management/monitoring capability using VadaTechs field-proven IPMI software. In addition an on-board management controller has the ability to access board sensors and manage FPGA image updates. The unit is available in a range of temperature and shock/vib specifications per ANSI/VITA 47, including conduction cooled up to V3 and OS2.

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

BLE2 Series Brushless Motor & Driver

The BLE2 Series replaces our popular BLE Series and continues our brushless motor advantages by featuring an all new compact, high-power and high-efficiency brushless DC motor combined with a Driver that can be digitally set and controlled via external DC voltage or by the front panel. The BLE2 Series can easily compete with larger 3-phase inverter driven motors in many more applications, with built-in simple holding torque function, saving space and increasing performance thanks to the advantages of a brushless motor design. The BLE2 Series has a maximum speed of 4000 r/min, achieving a speed ratio of 1:50 (80 to 4000 r/min). The new motor structure is small than previous models and enables high power and high efficiency while incorporating easy setting, installation and wiring. The new motor connector offers IP66 degree of protection and allows for easy and direct connection between motor and driver with two available orientation of cable outlet direction.
