The Kintex-7 FPGA Embedded Kit supports a range of standards, parallel processing and customizable interfaces with integrated functions like high performance DSP, memory, analog and I/O interfaces, making it easier for designers to embed soft processors to control dataflow and manage a number of interfaces in the system.
"Designers can reduce development time by using the Kintex-7 FPGA embedded targeted reference design that comes with the kit as a stepping stone for building their customized embedded systems," said Raj Seelam, Xilinx Senior Marketing Manager of Targeted Design Platforms. "The scalable, optimized architecture of Kintex-7 FPGAs allows customers to migrate their designs across Xilinx's 28nm 7 series devices, maximizing design reuse and reducing time to market."
Equipped with a combination of silicon, tools, IP cores, and MicroBlaze soft processor-based reference designs, both software and hardware developers alike can work on their designs in parallel. The kit has all the components needed for designers to get started, including a KC705 baseboard with Kintex-7 325T FPGA, ISE Design Suite Embedded Edition (including Xilinx Platform Studio and Xilinx Software Development Kit), USB, Ethernet, HDMI and power cables/supply and an AMS evaluation card.
The Kintex-7 FPGA Embedded Kit is priced at $1895 and is available to order.
