Kintex-7 Box

Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA Embedded Kit

  • Price: $1,695
  • Part Number: DK-K7-EMBD-G
  • Lead Time: 2 Weeks
  • Device Support:

Product Description

The Kintex®-7 Embedded Kit includes the components of the Kintex-7 KC705 Base Evaluation Kit plus all additional soft content that embedded designers need to quickly design their high-performance embedded systems. This includes the embedded targeted reference design and relevant tools such as Vivado® Design Suite.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Supports embedded processing with MicroBlaze, soft 32bit RISC
  • Leverages the Kintex-7 KC705 base board
  • Familiar Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE), GNU tools, operating systems, libraries and a pre-verified reference design
