Microsemi SyncSystem 4380A -The Microsemi SyncSystem 4380A provides superior time and frequency performance in a highly configurable 1U rack-mountable package, building upon the successful 4370A DVB SyncSource. The combination of a high performance internal atomic oscillator and L1/L2 GPS receiver ensures accurate synchronization of the system with UTC (USNO) while still providing the excellent phase noise and short-term stability demanded by metrology, aerospace, communications, and defense applications.


  • Timing accuracy: < 10 ns RMS
  • Frequency accuracy: < 1E-13 @ 1 day
  • Phase noise: -110 dBc/Hz (1 Hz Offset)
  • Holdover: 250 ns @ 1 day
  • Network Time Protocol (NTPv4)
  • Hot-swappable user output modules
  • Redundant and hot-swappable power supplies
  • SSHv2 Network Management Console
  • L1/L2 GPS receiver mitigates effect of ionospheric delay changes and supports advanced GPS processing
  • Remote software upgrades via network
  • External frequency reference input enables augmented timing performance when higher stability frequency standard is available.

XMC Modules enhanced with Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA – Acromag’s XMC-7K modules feature a high performance user-configurable Xilinx Kintex -7 FPGA enhanced with high-speed memory and a high throughput serial interface. The result is a powerful and flexible I/O processor module that is capable of executing custom instruction sets and algorithms.


  • Reconfigurable Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA with 325k or 410k logic cells
  • 128M x 64-bit DDR3 SDRAM
  • 32M x 16-bit parallel flash memory for MicroBlaze FPGA program code storage
  • 8-lane high-speed serial interface on rear P15 connector for PCIe Gen 1/2 (standard), Serial RapidI/O, 10Gb Ethernet, Xilinx Aurora
  • 4-lane high-speed interfaces on rear P16 connector for customer-installed soft cores
  • Dual SFP+ ports for Fibre Channel or 10GbE
  • 60 SelectI/O or 30 LVDS pairs plus 2 global clock pairs direct to FPGA via rear P4 port
  • 34 SelectI/O or 17 LVDS pairs plus 2 global clock pairs direct to FPGA via rear P16 port
  • 22 SelectI/O, 2 global clock pairs, JTAG, USB, and ground signals via front 36-pin connector
  • DMA support provides data transfer between system memory and the on-board memory
  • Support for Xilinx ChipScope Pro interface

Single or Dual LVDS Digital I/O with Virtex-6 FPGA – 6U OpenVPX 57610 and 58610 – Models 57610 and 58610 are members of the Cobalt family of high-performance 6U OpenVPX boards based on the Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA. They consist of one or two Model 71610 XMC modules mounted on a VPX carrier board. Model 57610 is a 6U board with one Model 71610 module while the Model 58610 is a 6U board with two XMC modules rather than one. These models include one or two general-purpose connectors for application specific I/O.


  • 32 or 64 bits of LVDS digital I/O
  • One or two LVDS clocks
  • One or two LVDS data valid
  • One or two LVDS data suspend
  • Supports LXT and SXT Virtex-6 FPGAS
  • One or two DMA controllers move data to and from system memory
  • Up to 2 or 4 GB of DDR3
  • PCI Express (Gen. 1 & 2) interface up to x8
  • Optional user-configurable gigabit serial interface
  • Optional LVDS connections to the Virtex-6 FPGA for custom I/O to the carrier board
  • Ruggedized and conduction cooled versions available
