The SPR507B is a 4-channel Serial FPDP interface PMC/XMC module designed for high-speed remote data transfer at the industry's fastest rates. Available as either a PMC module for legacy systems or as an XMC module for more recent systems, the SPR507B uses a Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA to help it deliver up to 4.25 Gbaud per link, or a total bandwidth across its four ports of around 1.4 Gigabytes/second. It also benefits from GE's extensive experience in thermal management and ruggedization, allowing it to be more easily deployed in confined spaces where cooling can be a challenge and where the environment is subject to extremes of heat, shock and vibration, etc.

The low latency protocol used in Serial FPDP and the noise immunity of the fibre-based data transport is the ideal combination for applications which require a dedicated data link to run between sources of data, such as high-speed digitizer, to a remote data processing station. The SPR507B allows for fibre lengths up to 10km in length with the choice of single mode fibre.

The XMC form factor allows the SPR507B to be mounted on the latest generation high-end SBC's for back end processing using the capabilities of multi-core CPUs, and provides the necessary data bandwidth to support the high-speed capabilities of the module. The PCI-X interface implemented on the PMC version of the card will also support high-speed throughput to Host memory. The scatter/gather mode of DMA implemented on the SPR507B allows for interrupt driven data transfer architectures, or for demand mode data transfer.
