About Products Applications Technology Corner Ruggedization News/Events

The QuiXilica VXS family are flexible analog and digital VITA 41.0 VXS I/O products. High performance analog and digital I/O front ends are combined with a scalable FPGA based processing architecture. Memory and inter-processor communication resources are optimized for very high performance real time DSP applications. QuiXilica includes development kits, FPGA cores and software, giving users power and flexibility while retaining consistency and ease of use.  These products can be used without a backplane if desired.

The QuiXilica V6 Architecture meets the needs of demanding sensor-processing applications across a range of environments.  The QuiXilica V6 architecture uses the latest field programmable gate array (FPGA) based processors - the Xilinx Virtex®-6 family, advanced DDR3 SDRAM, and the latest communications technologies available.  Full ruggedization has been designed into the architecture from the outset to provide products suitable for harsh demanding environments and deployed systems.
