Extreme pressures to lower power and lower bill of material (BOM) costs

Xilinx Solutions

Integrated evaluation kit boosts developer productivity with a combination of silicon, software, IP, and reference designs

Targeted design platforms—with open standards, common design methodologies, development tools, and run-time environment—benefit both software and hardware designers

Foundation for simpler and smarter development of FPGA-based system-on- chip (SoC) solutions

KINTEX-7 FPGA KC705 EVALUATION KIT: VERSATILE, HIGH-PERFORMANCE BASE PLATFORM

SHORTENS TIME TO MARKET FOR 7 SERIES Designs

Continuing its 28nm market leadership, Xilinx® offers developers access to the power, performance, and productivity advantages of the unified 7 series FPGAs with this base level Targeted Design Platform. The highly flexible Kintex-7 FPGA KC705 Evaluation Kit accelerates development of applications for a broad range of markets that demand power-efficient high-speed communications and processing. Some of these include wireless (radio/baseband), aerospace and defense (radar), avionics, broadcasting (triple-rate SDI, bridging, EdgeQAM), and medical imaging. Timeand cost-saving features include on-board PCI Express, Agile Mixed Signal (AMS), HDMI video output, and FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) connectors.

Quick and Easy Design Evaluations

The second-generation Xilinx Targeted Design Platforms help designers simultaneously deal with decreasing design cycles and increasing design complexity and project scope. Designers can boost productivity and greatly accelerate access to the advanced functionality of Xilinx 7 series FPGAs with pre-verified reference designs. The reference designs also speed evaluation when combined with a fullfeatured Kintex-7 FPGA evaluation board and Xilinx ISE® Design Suite software. An ecosystem of readily available third-party add-on hardware and IP can be leveraged to further accelerate projects.

Flexible Communications and Expansion

The Kintex-7 FPGA KC705 Evaluation Kit provides a flexible framework for designing higher-level systems that require DDR3, Gigabit Ethernet, PCI Express, and other serial connectivity. Integrated industry-standard FMC connectors—which support many existing cards—simplify scaling and customization and speed start up. The AMS header lets designers explore the AMS technology and see how the feature can trim BOM cost. Other communications features—high-speed GTX transceivers, SFP+, and SMA connectors—further extend the list of advanced capabilities that can be evaluated and leveraged from this platform.
