New Wave DV have released the V1161 Programmable 100G Ethernet card with high-performance embedded computing for sensor interface design with on-board data processing, multi-level secure networking and protocol bridging applications.
The V1161 XMC features the Xilinx Versal Adaptive Compute Acceleration Platform (ACAP), the NVIDIA Mellanox ConnectX-5 (MC-X5) network interface device, and rugged optical and electrical IO options.
The V1161 module is suitable for use in radar, SIGINT, video, storage, medical imaging, and embedded communications systems, applications which require a combination of high speed interfaces, network offloads, and on-board payload processing resources.
The combination of the MC-X5 device and the ACAP device allows system designers to leverage Ethernet performance off-the-shelf while deploying data processing and security algorithms in the onboard ACAP device.
This combination maximizes the effectiveness of the deployed algorithms while eliminating design efforts required to establish high-bandwidth Ethernet, PCIe controllers, efficient DMA engines, or low-overhead software drivers.
The V1161 provides high-bandwidth and low-latency performance in 10/25/40/100Gbs Ethernet applications and includes hardware offloads for UDP, TCP, RoCE v2, DPDK, GPUDirect, NVMEoF, and many other protocol stacks.
In addition to the Ethernet interfaces described, the FPGA fabric provided within the ACAP part is capable of hosting New Wave DV IP cores for Fibre Channel, ARINC-818, sFPDP, Aurora, and others. This makes the V1161 a suitable hardware platform for mixed interface protocol needs or protocol bridging applications.
The XMC form factor and rugged design of the V1161 can turn a VPX-based single board computer into a single-slot sensor interface and heterogeneous computing solution. The V1161 mounted on a x86 based single board computer will provide 100G optical interfaces, FPGA fabric, ARM processor cores, and x86 processor cores all in a single slot solution. V1161 is also available from New Wave DV in a 3U VPX form-factor instead of XMC if desired.
