Kintex-7 FPGA based reconfigurable XMC platform

May 16, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Alpha Data has launched the ADM-XRC-7K1, the first in a range of new products based on 28nm Xilinx 7 series FPGA technology.

The ADM-XRC-7K1 is a high performance reconfigurable XMC with PCI Express Gen2 interface, external memory and flexible front-panel IO options. The PCI Express bridge includes 4 DMA channels and is contained in a separate device, freeing the logic in the FPGA and allowing on-the-fly reconfiguration. For maximum flexibility, a bypass option allows users to place the PCI Express endpoint directly in the FPGA. A front panel IO is provided through the XRM interface. Alpha Data produce a wide range of XRM modules giving options including optical IO, CameraLink, high performance DACs and ADCs. The 7K1 is available in both Kintex-7 325T or 410T FPGA configurations. It ships with a comprehensive Software Development Kit (SDK), including example designs and software drivers. The board is also available in industrial grade, air or conduction cooled variants, making it ideal for use in a wide range of markets and applications.
