Virtex-6 FPGA DSP Development Kit with High-Speed Analog

AES-V6DSP2-LX240T-G-x iconWireless, 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 improve to provide an easier entry point for using FPGAs for DSP. The Xilinx® Virtex®-6 FPGA DSP Kit with High-Speed Analog brings development tools, methodologies, IP and support together into solutions that accelerate development for experienced users and simplifies the adoption of FPGAs for new users. By combining the elements of a total solution including high-speed data converters, users can focus on the unique value of a design at the beginning of the design process.

With the introduction of the Virtex-6 FPGA DSP Kit with High-Speed Analog, Avnet Electronics Marketing augments its portfolio of domain-specific targeted design platforms. The kit includes the Xilinx ML605 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 Virtex-6 FPGA family. Two example designs, both showing the implementation of a WCDMA digital up converter / digital down converter with analog to digital loopback, are provided with the kit. For algorithm developers, a familiar DSP design flow is provided based on Simulink® and MATLAB® from The Mathworks that allows 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: Logic Edition and LogicCore DSP IP.
