|Alpha Data\’s First Virtex-7 Mezzanine Card, the ADM-XRC-7V1|
Alpha Data is proud to announce the launch of the ADM-XRC-7V1, the first in a range of new products based on Xilinx Virtex®-7 FPGAs. The ADM-XRC-7V1 is a high performance reconfigurable XMC with PCI Express Gen2 interface, external memory and flexible front-panel IO options.
The 7V1 is the latest in the highly successful line of Alpha Data PMC and XMC products. The result of over a decade of experience and partnership with Xilinx, 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.
‘Alpha Data’s latest product, the ADM-XRC-7V1, offers customers the performance and flexibility they require, leveraging the unique advantages provided by the Xilinx 7 series FPGA’s. All this with significantly lower power consumption than previous generations making the ADM-XRC-7V1 an ideal platform for prototype design, system development and product deployment.’ -Keith Baker, CTO, Alpha Data.
The 7V1 is available with the Virtex-7 XC7V585T, XC7VX330T, XC7VX485T or XC7VX690T FPGA and ships with a comprehensive Software Development Kit (SDK) including example designs.
The 7V1 is competitively priced and available to order immediately. It ships with a comprehensive Software Development Kit (SDK), including example designs and software drivers. The board is also available in industrial grade, air or conduction cooled variants, making it ideal for use in a wide range of markets and applications.
