The IC-FEP-VPX6a is a VPX hybrid processing engine coupling the latest generations of FPGAs and processor, both of them delivering a very high level of performance per watt.

With its QorIQTM processor for system management and a PCIe advanced switch for a versatile coupling between the processing nodes, the IC-FEP VPX6a board expands the flexibility of the two Virtex-6 FPGAs and the VPX high bandwidth serial interfaces.

Two FMC mezzanine sites enlarge the adaptability of the board to connect ADC, DAC, general IOs, video, sFPDP or additionnal FPGA FMC modules.

With this combination of high performance CPU, dual FPGAs and FMC sites, the IC-FEP-VPX6a provides the ideal platform for radar, sonar, electronic warfare and other very high demanding digital signal processing applications.
