Acromag’s XMC-7K modules feature a high-performance user-configurable Xilinx® Kintex®-7 FPGA enhanced with high-speed memory and a high-throughput serial bus interface. The result is a powerful and flexible I/O processor module that is capable of executing custom instruction sets and algorithms.

The logic-optimized FPGA is well-suited for a broad range of applications. Typical uses include hardware simulation, communications, in-circuit diagnostics, military servers, signal intelligence, and image processing.

Both front and rear I/O is supported. Front I/O processing is supported with plug-in AXM mezzanine cards. A variety of AXM I/O cards are available to add the flexibility of a wide range of analog and digital I/O to your design.

The rear I/O provides an 8-lane high-speed serial interface on the P16 XMC port for customer installed soft cores. P16 also supports 34 SelectIO channels. The P4 port adds another 60 SelectIO and global clock lines. SelectI/O signals are Kintex-7 FPGA I/O pins that support single-ended I/O (LVCMOS, HSTL, SSTL) and differential I/O standards (LVDS, HT, LVPECL, BLVDS, HSTL, SSTL).

Two versions of the Kintex-7 are available, offering a choice of an FPGA device with 325k or 410k logic cells.

With Acromag’s Kintex-7 FPGA modules, you can greatly increase DSP algorithm performance for faster throughput using multiple channels and parallel hardware architectures. Free up CPU cycles by offloading algorithmic-intensive tasks to the FPGA co-processor.

These modules are ideal for high-performance customized embedded systems. Optimize your system performance by integrating highspeed programmable logic with the flexibility of software running on MicroBlaze™ soft processors.

Acromag’s Engineering Design Kit provides software utilities and example VHDL code to simplify your program development and get you running quickly. A JTAG interface enables on-board debugging. Additional Xilinx tools help finish your system faster. Maximize FPGA performance with Vivado® or ISE® Design Suite. And with ChipScope™ Pro tools, you can rapidly debug logic and serial interfaces.
