The ADK-VA601 is a 6U Space VPX reference platform for the AMD Versal AI Core XQRVC1902 Adaptable SoC platform for Space 2.0.
AMD 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 ADK-VA601 contains the following hardware modules:
ADM-VA601, ADM-VA600-RTM and ADM-SDEV-FL1 as well as the RD-VA600 Reference Designs.
The ADM-VA601 development 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. The platform 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 platform also features Space Grade DDR4 Memory modules from Teledyne-e2v and QSPI configuration flash from Infineon Technologies.
The ADM-VA600-RTM is a 6U, VPX, Rear Transition Module (RTM) designed to interface with the Alpha Data ADM-VA601 AMD Versal AI Core XQRVC1902 Adaptable SoC platform. The RTM provides an on board AMD Zynq ZU4EG for application development configuration control, system monitoring and debug. It also provides connectivity for all the ADM-VA601 backplane IO with Dual FireFly interfaces, Dual SFF-8644 Interfaces, Space Wire, CAN, Gigabit Ethernet and RS232 communications interfaces.
The ADM-VA601 supports a variety of plug in memory modules for configuring the Adaptable SoC platform. Included in the kit is the ADM-SDEV-FL1 module fitted with 2x1Gbit Micron MT25QL01GBBB8E12 devices for lab developement.
The RD-VA600 contains a suite of example designs for the ADK-VA601, containing both the firmware and software to run the applications. The examples are the recommended starting point for user application development.
