Virtex-7 FPGA-based XMC card with PCI Express Gen2 interface

August 16, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Alpha Data has launched the ADM-XRC-7V1, a high performance reconfigurable XMC with PCI Express Gen2 interface, external memory and flexible front-panel IO options.

Based on Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGAs, the 7V1 combines performance with ease-of-use and reliability. Particular emphasis has been placed on ease-of-migration from earlier generations of FPGA, allowing customers to benefit from the features of the Virtex device with minimal effort. 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. Front panel IO is provided through the XRM interface. Alpha Data provides a wide range of XRM modules giving options including optical IO, CameraLink, high performance DACs and ADCs. The 7V1 is available with the Virtex-7 XC7V585T, XC7VX330T, XC7VX485T or XC7VX690T FPGA and ships with a comprehensive software development kit including example designs.
