We developed Signal Integry, FPGA, and complete board design that brought about a whole new method of combining ethernet and backplanes.

The Solution

The solution was a combination of FPGA and standard switch components. We created a low power active backplane that allows inactive parts to power down until they are needed again.

Axcon's Role

We were faced with a challenging design task, and we wanted to focus on decreasing power consumption. We achieved a flexible design that balances power usage and cost. Due to our solid signal integrity experience, we accomplished a stable design in the first version. Our design is versatile and can be easily revised should Bruel & Kjaer need to modify any part of the system. We provided them with extensive documentation as well.

Bruel & Kjaer's Advantage

Bruel & Kjaer were able to achieve a complete board design in shorter time, which dramatically improves the overall system flexibility.

"We needed a partner who could demonstrate knowledge within a range of disciplines with a particular emphasis on high-speed electronics, FPGA, and signal handling. During the course of the project the cooperation with Axcon went smoothly and we were provided with the feedback that was necessary to achieve a final product that met our demands in regard to performance as well as cost. Axcon’s extensive knowledge of the design of FPGAs has added more value to the final solution than we had ever expected to be possible."
