Xilinx announces availability of Virtex-7 FPGA VC709 Connectivity Kit
Oct 10, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Xilinx, Inc., a supplier of programmable logic devices, has announced availability of its Virtex-7 FPGA VC709 Connectivity Kit, a 40 Gbps platform that enables designers to accelerate design productivity for applications such as network interface cards for security, network monitoring, and trading appliances.
Ideal for customers needing to prototype their low power, high performance, single-chip PCIe Gen3, 40Gbps Ethernet applications, the kit includes a fully validated and supported reference design running on a Virtex-7 X690T FPGA, design tools, and IP cores that streamline the evaluation and development of connectivity systems, enabling reduced development costs and faster time-to-market.
"The Virtex-7 FPGA VC709 Connectivity Kit dramatically increases designer productivity by offering a targeted reference design that allows customers to focus on building and optimizing their own applications," said Raj Seelam, director of Solutions Marketing at Xilinx. "Typical applications of this highly optimized reference design include high-performance computing prototyping in wired telecommunications and wireless infrastructure applications."
The kit includes the Vivado Design Suite, the industry's first SoC-strength design environment, to enable accelerated design cycles and the industry standard FMC I/O expansion header, compatible with over 100 daughter cards, to enable faster prototyping. A fully validated and supported targeted reference design that integrates the entire PCIe Gen3, AXI, Ethernet and DDR3 subsystem with both the HDL and the entire software stack, as well as an evaluation license of the Northwest Logic DMA IP core is also included in the connectivity kit.
