The XPedite2300

Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) (Middleton, WI) offers the XPedite2300, a Xilinx® Virtex®-6 based XMC module with support for pluggable daughter cards for customizable I/O. In conjunction with the XPedite2300, X-ES has announced the XPedite2300 FPGA Development Kit (FDK), an embedded FPGA development environment based on the AXI4 interface protocol. The FDK includes IP blocks, example FPGA designs, and software to control and communicate with FPGAs. All of the IP blocks included in the FDK interface to the industry-standard AXI4 interconnect, which enables reuse of IP.

The XPedite2300 supports the Virtex-6 LX130T, LX195T, LX240T, LX365T, SX315T, and SX475T FPGAs. There are initially two daughter cards that can be mounted on the XPedite2300: a 10-bit, dual, 1.5- GSPS (or single 3.0-GSPS) A/D daughter card, and a 14-bit, dual, 2.5- GSPS D/A daughter card.

The module features include a conduction- or air-cooled XMC module; two channels of DDR3 SDRAM, up to 1 GB (512 MB each); 128 MB of flash; x8 PCI Express XMC interface on the Pn5 connector; optional super cap backup for configuration bitstream encryption key; and configuration via PCIe, flash, and JTAG with multi-boot support.
