New PXI Flex FPGA for Digital and Mixed Signal Solutions
Image Expanding on its successful line of 3U PXI dynamic digital I/O cards, Geotest now offers a user-configurable FPGA 3U PXI Flex-DIO card that features 160 digital I/O signals for specific application needs. The new GX3500 employs the Altera Cyclone III FPGA that supports clock rates up to 150 MHz and features over 55,000 logic elements. With the option to add expansion card assemblies (daughter cards), users can create customized interfaces and circuitry, eliminating the requirement for bulky add-on boards that normally reside outside of the module.

Unlike other FPGA PXI cards, the GX3500 does not rely upon proprietary development tools. Using Altera's free, Quartus II Web Edition tool set, users can develop and compile their FPGA design which can then be downloaded into the FPGA via the PXI bus interface or via an on-board EEROM. To simplify the overall design and deployment process, the GX3500 is supplied with tutorials and a driver library that provides access to the FPGA's read / write registers as well as support for downloading the compiled Altera code into the FPGA device.

Availability: The GX3500 is available for immediate delivery.
Happy Holidays
Happy Holidays I would like to wish you and your families a safe and joyous holiday season. As 2010 approaches, we can reflect on our 2009 accomplishments and look forward to the new and promising new year. The entire Geotest-Marvin Test Systems team joins me wishing you a happy holiday season, a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
