GDX Module

Product Description

The GDX module extends the interconnection capabilities of the BPM electronics. Four protocol independent small form pluggable (SFP) slots can be used to build a closed loop of all the instruments in the accelerator. It features a Virtex6 FPGA, which is completely open to user-developed applications. It can process the internal (within the chassis) and external position data at various data rates.
