XMC-7K F: User-Configurable Kintex-7 FPGA Modules with Dual SFP+ Ports
• Kintex-7 FPGA with 325k or 410k logic cells
• 10Gb Ethernet
• PCIe & SFP +/Aurora interface
Acromag’s XMC-7K modules feature a high-performance user-configurable Xilinx® Kintex®-7 FPGA enhanced with high-speed memory and a high-throughput serial interface. The result is a powerful and flexible I/O processor module that is capable of executing custom instruction sets and algorithms.
The logic-optimized FPGA is well-suited for a broad range of applications. Typical uses include hardware simulation, communications, in-circuit diagnostics, military servers, signal intelligence, and image processing.
Two versions of this module are available, offering a choice of an FPGA device with 325k or 410k logic cells.
Front I/O adds dual SFP+ ports and a VHDCR connector. The two SFP+ ports each provide a copper or fibre interface of up to 10.3125Gbps. They also support a Gigabit Ethernet interface. The VHDCR connector interfaces JTAG, USB, and 22 SelectIO.
The rear I/O provides a 4-lane high-speed serial interface on the P16 XMC port for customer installed soft cores. P16 also supports 34 SelectIO channels. The P4 port adds another 60 SelectIO and global clock lines. SelectI/O signals are Kintex-7 FPGA I/O pins that support single-ended I/O (LVCMOS, HSTL, SSTL) and differential I/O
standards (LVDS, HT, LVPECL, BLVDS, HSTL, SSTL).
With Acromag’s Kintex-7 FPGA modules, you can greatly increase DSP algorithm performance for faster throughput using multiple channels and parallel hardware architectures. Free up CPU cycles by offloading algorithmic-intensive tasks to the FPGA co-processor.
These modules are ideal for high-performance customized embedded systems. Optimize your system performance by integrating high-speed programmable logic with the flexibility of software running on MicroBlaze™ soft processors.
Acromag’s Engineering Design Kit provides software utilities and example VHDL code to simplify your program development and get you running quickly. A JTAG interface enables on-board debugging. Additional Xilinx tools help finish your system faster. Maximize FPGA performance with Vivado® or ISE® Design Suite. And with ChipScope™ Pro tools, you can rapidly debug logic and serial interfaces.
