Huntsville, Alabama – Abaco Systems Inc. announces the VP831 as the next generation of its VP889, 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 customers with an upgrade path to the latest technology, providing more bandwidth and increased processing capabilities at a lower power and size. The VP831 is built with high performance digital and analog systems.

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 harsh 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 a 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 with predictable timelines. With the latest FPGA chipset, configurable serial interface options and embedded multiprocessor system-on-chip (MPSoC), the VP831 demonstrates Abaco’s commitment to delivering rugged COTS hardware thus helping our customers overcome their most demanding application challenges.

The VP831 will be beneficial in a wide range of military/aerospace and commercial applications such as communications, sensor processing, radar, and electronic warfare.
