RAVEN - sFPDP board PCIe
RAVEN - sFPDP board PCIe


| NEW | RAVEN is now compliant with the VITA 17.1 standard.

RAVEN is a sFPDP board PCIe x4 Gen2 implementing 4 sFPDP channels with receive and transmit engine for high-performance data-processing.

Based on AMD (Xilinx) Kintex-7 FPGA, this sFPDP board PCIe supports up to 10 Gbps data rate per link. RAVEN is fully dimensioned to implement VITA 17.1 and 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.
