How Effective are the Newly Introduced FPGA Boards by Abaco Systems?
In recent times, Abaco Systems has been awarded contracts to produce FPGA processor subsystems, including PC821 FPGA Cards and FMC120 FPGA Mezzanine Cards. The subsystems were made to examine and scan data transmissions for the military systems.
Supporting one VITA 57.1 compliant HPC FMC site and one VITA 57.4-compliant FMC+, the PC821 is an effective PCI Express card with advanced DSP capabilities and multiple I/O options. Built for high-speed works that need large-band signal digitization or generation through accelerated frequency-domain algorithms, the PC821 interface can backup eight lanes. The product has a serial interface that doubles as a single-lane SFP+ module. If you want an optional serial peripheral interface, you can use the 8-lane 14Gbps.
Featuring Xilinx® Ultrascale™ and Zynq® Ultrascale+™ technology, the 3U VPX VP881 is a highly efficient FPGA processing board built for the most challenging military/defense applications.
The 3U VPX VP881 is a top-performance feature designed for the most electronic sonar/radar image processing, warfare/DRFM, satellite communications systems, multichannel reception/digital transmission, and top-level digital beamforming. From a migration path to various Virtex™ Ultrascale+ devices, there are seven Ultrascale FPGAs you can choose to enhance flexibility, high performance, and the 3U VPX form factor’s longevity.
Abaco Systems create FPGA technologies that offer flexibility, high frequency, improved processing power, and reconfiguration. Though the brand is majorly concerned with providing high-performance solutions to the defense system, it can leverage other industries like commercial and transportation.

What are FPGA used for?
Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) are integrated circuits or semiconductor devices built around an array of blocks or configurable logic blocks (CLBs) linked together through preset interconnects. These devices can be reconfigured to suit different applications and functions after production. FPGAs enable you to build your chip. Their adaptable and programmable features make them suitable for many industries. Below are some of its applications:
Security systems: From surveillance to safety, FPGAs offer security solutions that meet the evolving insecurities.
Aerospace and defense: Used for digital image processing and waveform generation in radar.
Medical purposes: FPGAs are used in the manufacture of medical devices for diagnostics (X-ray and ultrasound), monitoring, and therapeutics.
Wireless communications: These chips are implemented in wireless equipment in integrated RF, networking solutions, and baseband.
Consumer electronics: Production of smartphones, digital solutions like television, cameras, etc.
Industrial use: The semiconductor devices are used in industrial systems to boost flexibility, launching and reduce one-time engineering costs for various applications like medical imaging equipment, surveillance, and industrial automation.
Automotive: Silicon and IP solutions for high-performance driver assistance systems, advanced display technologies, and convenience.
Parallel processes: To form or regulate various systems of information.
ASIC prototyping: Building ASIC with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA) facilitate software integration, SoC emulation, accelerate software and firmware development.
Broadcast & Pro A/V: Adaptable solutions that provide real-time video, audio processing, media connectivity, and software configuration.
Data Center Acceleration: FPGA is utilized in the data center for achieving ultra-low latency, networking, and optimizing hardware.
Digital Signal Processing: The digital circuits help process algorithms like image processing, digital filtering, etc.
