| NEW | RAVEN is now supporting 4 links @ 10 Gbps per link.

RAVEN is a sFPDP board PCIe implementing 4 sFPDP channels with receive and transmit engine for high-performance data-processing.

Based on AMD (Xilinx) FPGA, this sFPDP board PCIe supports up to 10 Gbps data rate per link. RAVEN is fully dimensioned to implement VITA 17.1 and VITA 17.3 sFPDP standards and offers the following functionalities : Flow Control, CRC, Framed/Unframed, Copy/Loop Mode.

The user-friendly API (Application Programming Interface) software, written in C++, allows to get/send data, monitoring, configure, upgrade, etc.

This sFPDP board PCIe is compliant with copper or fiber thanks to its SFP+ slots.

sFPDP protocol

Serial Front Panel Data Port is a high-speed low-latency serial communications protocol for use in high-speed data transfer applications.

sFPDP is ideal for use in applications such as high-speed communication system backplanes, high-bandwidth remote sensor systems, signal processing, data recording, and high-bandwidth video systems.

RAVEN integrates an sFPDP IP designed by StreamDSP, a major player and expert in VITA 17.1 and 17.3 IPs.
