Data acquisition control, signal processing, buffering, and system interface functions are implemented in a Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA device. Two 256Mx16 memories provide data buffering and FPGA computing memory.

The logic can be fully customized using VHDL using the FrameWork Logic toolset.

The PCI Express 2.0 interface supports data rates up to 1600 MB/s for unbuffered continuous data or burst data streams. When using a standard configuration involving DDR3 buffered data, a continuous data rate up to 1300 MB/s is supported.
