Kintex 7 FPGA family: High Performance DDR3 memory throughput achieved

September 26, 2012 // By F. Kermarrec, S. Bouché, Barco Silex
Taking full advantage of the performances of the 7 Series FPGAs can be done by using the high speed memory controller from Barco Silex, which has been reworked to achieve the highest frequency and efficiency. This White Paper focuses on the measurement methodology put in place to validate and evaluate various scenarios, as well as the flexibility of the controller configuration to optimize timing, logic, user ports and therefore the overall performances.
