Geotest’s user-configurable field-programmable gate array 3U PXI card features 160 digital I/O signals for specific application needs. The device employs the Altera Cyclone III FPGA that supports clock rates up to 150 MHz and features over 55,000 logic elements. The unit supports expansion card assemblies (daughter cards) that can be used to customize the interface to the unit under test, eliminating the requirement for bulky add-on boards. The device does not require proprietary design tools, as customers can use Altera’s free, Web-based Quartas II design tools. Also included in the software bundle is a virtual panel that aids with interactive design, debug, and deployment of the module.
