Although the 7156 is a PMC/XMC board, the same features are also available in four other bus formats, including the 7656 PCI board, the 7756 full-length PCI Express board, the 7256 6U CompactPCI board, and the 7356 3U CompactPCI board. Shortly, Pentek will begin shipping a half-length PCI Express version of the 7156 for desktop PCs.

A total of 512 MB of DDR2 SDRAM memory arranged in two banks, allows users to capture real-time data, storing it in a local memory. This feature will have particular appeal to those engaged in wideband radar, where the destination device cannot handle the peak real-time data rates, and the SDRAM acts as an elastic buffer.

The SDRAM can also be used to store an arbitrary waveform for playback through the D/A converters. Optionally, the total SDRAM capacity can be doubled to 1 GB.

The 7156 is supported under Windows, followed by Linux and VxWorks operating systems, with board support packages (BSP) for each. Each BSP includes an OS driver as well as a full feature ReadyFlow C language library to support all board functions and provide sample applications for quick development start-up.

Pentek provides GateFlow FPGA design kits for both FPGAs. Each GateFlow kit includes all factory-installed functions, allowing users to add their own custom IP and signal processing algorithms to the factory infrastructure.

The price for the Model 7156 with the Windows operating system begins at Rs.5.82 lakh ($11,500 USD). Delivery is 8 to 10 weeks ARO.
