The ADM-VA600 is a 6U Space VPX reference platform for the AMD-Xilinx Versal AI Core XQRVC1902 Adaptable SoC platform for Space 2.0.
Versal AI Core provides a massive leap forward in reconfigurable and customizable processing performance for Space mission deployment of compute intensive applications such as Signal Processing and Machine Learning. The platform is designed to accept components suitable for Space 2.0 level missions with limited radiation environment or mission length, such as LEO applications. The standard manufacturing build of this platform is however intended for laboratory prototyping use only with commercial footprint compatible parts and unqualified space parts fitted in most cases.
The primary customers will be using this version for design proving and other prototype level testing. Custom manufacture of the board with qualified space plastic parts, and possible application specific customizations is available as an option to customers.
The board features a reference Space Grade power supply co-designed with Texas Instruments, along with many other Space Enhanced Plastic devices covering clocking and system monitoring functionality. The board also features Space Grade DDR4 Memory modules from Teledyne-e2v and QSPI configuration flash from Infineon Technologies.
See the ADK-VA600 page for the complete system overview.
