Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA DSP Development Kit with High-Speed Analog

Print Friendly

Wireless, aerospace and defense, instrumentation and medical imaging applications continue to demand faster sampling of wideband analog signals from the outside world, while high-level design flows continually evolve towards intuitive FPGA-based digital signal processing. The Xilinx Kintex®-7 FPGA DSP Kit with High-Speed Analog integrates development tools, methodologies, IP and support to accelerate development for experienced users and simplify the adoption of FPGAs for new users. Building upon a robust high-speed data acquisition infrastructure, designers can focus on their application at the start of the design process.

With the introduction of the Kintex-7 FPGA DSP Kit with High-Speed Analog, Avnet Electronics Marketing augments its porfolio of domain-specific targeted design platforms. The kit includes the Xilinx KC705 board and 4DSP FMC150 high-speed data converter FMC module, introducing users to efficient tool flows and design techniques for high-speed data acquisition and DSP-centric designs with the Kintex-7 FPGA family. Example designs show the implementation of a WCDMA digital up converter / digital down converter with analog to digital loopback. For algorithm developers, a familiar DSP design flow is provided based on Simulink® and MATLAB® from MathWorks that supports real time data acquisition and the creation of FPGA hardware without the need to learn RTL. Traditional RTL design methodologies are also supported through a design implementation that uses ISE® Design Suite and LogicCore DSP IP.
