XMC Products


The Galleon XMC family consists of a sFPDP XMC, a quad channel GbE XMC and a quad channel 10GbE XMC.

Galleon's Serial FPDP XMC is a flexible platform implementing a quad channel VITA 17.1-2003 sFPDP receive and transmit engine for high-performance image processing, SIGINT/COMINT, radar processing, software defined radio, sensor data capture, etc.

Galleon's Titan Quad Gigabit Ethernet XMC and the Galleon Titan Quad 10Gigabit Ethernet XMC offers high-performance Ethernet for a wide range of applications. Based on the high-performance Intel i350 quad port Gigabit Ethernet controller, the Titan Quad Gigabit Ethernet XMC supports IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP), making it suitable for time critical applications. Providing UDP, TCP and IP checksum offload functionality. Based on the latest Intel XL710 (Forteville) 10GbE Controller, the Titan Quad 10GbE XMC supports IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP), making it suitable for time critical applications. The XL710 offers the latest UDP, TCP and IP checksum offload.

The XMCs are available in both air-cooled and conduction-cooled variants. The boards may be fitted with standard front panel LC connectors or recessed rugged LC connectors for easy optical cabling in conduction cooled environments with no front panel connections. Alternatively, the high speed serial interfaces can be routed through the P16 rear I/O for backplane communication.

The boards is delivered with drivers for Linux and Windows hosts. An optional PCI Express card edge adapter offers easy integration in standard desktop systems for non-rugged applications and SW development.
