New XMC Modules Feature Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA

WIXOM, MI -- Acromag's new XMC-7A200 is a XMC mezzanine module enhanced with Xilinx® Artix® -7 FPGA for low-power consumption and exceptional 128M x 16-bit Quad DDR3 SDRAM processing performance. Reconfigurable Artix-7 FPGA is possible via a direct download into the Flash configuration memory over the PCIe bus or the JTAG port. Four-lane high-speed serial interface on rear P15 connector for PCI Express Gen 1/2 (standard), Serial RapidI/O, and Xilinx Aurora implementations are supported. Rear I/O provides 8-lane high-speed serial interface on the P16 XMC port. SelectI/O or LVDS pairs plus global clock pairs direct to FPGA via rear P4 or P16 port. The FPGA serves as a co-processor applying custom logic and algorithms to streams of remote sensor data. Typical applications include hardware simulation, communications, in-circuit diagnostics, military servers, signal intelligence, and image processing. Designed and manufactured in the USA, lead-free modules are available beginning at $2,295.

"In combination with the new Kintex®-7 series, the new XMC-7A Artix®-7 family further expands Acromag's offer of FPGA products. The XMC-7A will provide users an unbeatable lower-end combination of capabilities; lower power consumption, excellent functionality and a balanced mix of I/O, all based on Xilinx's® latest Vivado® development package," announced Russ Nieves, Acromag's Director of Embedded Solutions.

Build options include XC7A200T FPGA device with plug-in I/O or conduction-cooled for extended temperature. An engineering design kit provides user with basic information required to develop a custom FPGA program. Software support packages are available for VxWorks® 32-bit, Windows® DLL, and Linux™.
