Artix-7 FPGA AC701 Evaluation Kit now available for designs requiring increased system performance, small form factor and lowest total power
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 12, 2013 -- Xilinx, Inc. today announced the availability of the Artix(TM)-7 FPGA AC701 Evaluation Kit for developing high-performance systems that target applications requiring both low cost and low power. Equipped with an All Programmable Artix-7 200T device, the new evaluation kit has the tools, IP and reference designs needed for designers to jump start their design cycle while leveraging the industry's leading system performance per watt FPGA.
All Programmable Artix-7 FPGAs offer power efficiency, compactness and low cost, as well as increased system performance for applications such as low-end remote radio head, mobile backhaul, software defined radio, motor control and a broad range of other applications requiring high performance and a small footprint. With Analog Mixed Signal (AMS), DDR3, DSP resources, parallel and serial I/O and other system-level capabilities, Artix-7 FPGAs are an excellent choice for designers looking to reduce their BOM costs through programmable system integration.
The evaluation kit includes a device locked license for Xilinx's Vivado(TM) Design Suite, Design Edition, the industry's first SoC strength design environment. This evaluation kit offers more than ten reference designs including a powerful PCIe and DDR3 subsystem with an IP license for the full version of Northwest Logic's DMA Back-End Core for use in customer designs. The AMS 101 evaluation card paired with the AMS reference design -are the perfect vehicle to evaluate how to use AMS to reduce BOM costs for everything from simple system monitoring to more complex analog functions.
The Artix-7 FPGA AC701 Evaluation Kit is priced at $1,295 and open for order entry at www.xilinx.com/ac701 .
Xilinx is the world's leading provider of All Programmable FPGAs, SoCs and 3D ICs. These industry-leading devices are coupled with a next-generation design environment and IP to serve a broad range of customer needs, from programmable logic to programmable systems integration.
