BEEcube Inc., a provider of all-programmable equipment for research, development, prototyping and telecom platform deployment, is set to launch its new platform for telecom applications at the PT/EXPO COMM China 2012 event, taking place in Beijing, China from September 18th to the 22nd.
"The demand for powerful and flexible platforms for wireless applications is exploding in China, and that is why BEEcube is proud of preannouncing BEE7 at the PT/EXPO COMM China," said Dr. Chen Chang, CEO and founder of BEEcube.
"This prestigious trade show gives us the opportunity for early exposure to the entire telecom community of new technology that we are already using with one of our customers for the development of next generation wireless equipment," Dr. Chang added.
The company, besides showcasing its existing product line, which includes the BEE4 Real-Time Prototyping Platform for highly demanding projects and the miniBEE "R&D in a Box" platform at corporate R&D with smaller designs, will also showcase the BEE7 to be introduced in 2013, which packages the latest Xilinx (News - Alert) Virtex-7 family of FPGAs and high-speed standard interfaces into an ATCA blade directly deployable in the field. Desktop and 2U rack mount enclosures will also be made available around this time.
Described as an advanced, all programmable piece of equipment, the BEE7 will feature four Virtex-7 FPGAs, 128 GB DDR3 ECC RDRAM, 720 Gbps backplane throughput, 768 Gbps Rear Transmission Module (RTM) throughput, 800 Gbps FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) throughput, four FMC front panel slots for ADC/DAC cards, and RTM cards for networking interfaces and PCI (News - Alert) Express connections.
