Sensor Processing

Performance and flexibility for a sensor-rich, interconnected world

Why BittWare for Sensor Processing?

Sensor processing has been a core market for BittWare for three decades. DSPs and FPGAs have been extensively used in embedded applications such RADAR, SDR and Electronic Warfare for real-time data acquisition, filtering and signal processing.

This rich heritage continues: some of our biggest customers today deploy BittWare-based sensor processing products.

Applications

With their inherent flexibility, modern FPGAs and SoCs are ideal for multi-channel sensor processing applications that can handle ultra-high data ingress and real-time processing requirements within SWaP (Size, Weight and Power) constrained application environments.

DDR4, HBM2 or QDR-II+ SRAM Memory

BittWare’s FPGA cards allow your application to access a range of memory types. Our latest generation of products feature DIMM sites that can be populated with a choice of DDR4 or QDR-II+ SRAM allowing an optimal hierarchy of deep buffer and cache-like memory configurations to be created. Some cards offer HBM2 or GDDR6 memories with 8GB or more and higher bandwidth than DDR4.

 

Digital GPIO and High-speed Serial I/O

We recognize that many sensor processing applications require a mix of I/O types and speeds. BittWare’s products feature multiple expansion ports allowing a range of peripherals to be integrated. These range from simple 1 PPS clock inputs and single-ended digital triggers, all the way through to additional high-speed network ports, direct NVMe access and card-to-card deterministic scaling.

Card-to-Card Scaling

High-bandwidth, low latency card interconnect. Scale independently of the PCIe bus. Multiple cards support this, with XUP-P3R (pictured) connecting two boards; other cards can daisy-chain more than two cards.

Direct NVMe Access

Take advantage of our computational storage solutions for your sensor processing application. Stream sensor data directly to NVMe at full data rate, avoiding the PCIe bottleneck and unburdening the host OS.
