Original Press Release:

Next Generation of Industry-Leading 3U VPX FPGA Board Designed to Align With SOSA™ Technical Standard

HUNTSVILLE, Ala.— January 14, 2021 Abaco Systems, Inc. announces the VP831 as the next generation of our VP889, the industry-leading 3U VPX FPGA board now with 100G Ethernet on a design which is aligned with Sensor Open Systems Architecture™ (SOSA) technical standard. This release provides our customers with an upgrade path to the latest technology, providing more bandwidth and increased processing capabilities at a lower power and size, ready to perform in the harshest of environments. The VP831 is built on our decades of experience with high performance digital and analog systems to deliver quality in a system you can trust.

With upgrades to the underlying technology including embedded ARM cores within the Zynq Ultrascale+ system-on-chip, which reduces power consumption, size, and cost, as well as brings advanced security to the forefront. The VP831 is built to perform in the harshest of environments. It comes with a fully featured open-board support package giving customers a high-level reference design example to simplify integration of application specific IP and reduce risks of a program integration. This product delivers on the promise of a migration path from the VP881 to the VP889. By adhering to industry standards, users can upgrade their systems without a full system redesign, including future technology not yet available on the market.

Serving as a SOSA™ standard aligned variant of the VP889, the VP831 is the most capable embedded FPGA computing solution in a 3U VPX form factor, bringing flexible, powerful, rugged sensor processing and I/O technology. Military and aerospace, and commercial programs require the latest in I/O and signal processing technology at an affordable cost and with predictable timelines.
