The Kintex™-7 FPGA DSP Targeted Reference Design includes a DSP datapath connected to a high-speed analog interface in a loop back configuration. Xilinx DSP IP is used to create digital filters used for digital up / down conversion to the interface. The design is tuned for maximum performance from the Kintex-7 FPGA programmable logic and the analog interface. Key features include:

  • Xilinx FIR Compiler
  • Mux isolation of both the analog and digital logic for debug
  • Selectable sine wave or impulse pattern generation
  • Dynamic updates to the data converter configuration registers from the FPGA using ChipScope™ VIO AXI4 Streaming interface
