Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA KC705 Evaluation Kit

  • Price: $1,695
  • Part Number: EK-K7-KC705-G
  • Lead Time: 2 Weeks
  • Device Support:

Product Description

The Kintex®-7 FPGA KC705 Evaluation Kit includes all the basic components of hardware, design tools, IP, and pre-verified reference designs including a targeted design enabling high-performance serial connectivity and advanced memory interfacing. The included pre-verified reference designs and industry-standard FPGA Mezzanine Connectors (FMC) allow scaling and customization with daughter cards.


Key Features & Benefits

  • Optimized for quickly prototyping high performance serial transceiver applications using Kintex-7 FPGAs
  • Hardware, design tools, IP, and pre-verified reference designs
    • Demonstrates an end to end PCIe configured with 4 lanes at a 5 Gb/s link rate (Gen2) or 8 lanes at a 2.5 Gb/s link rate (Gen1)
  • Advanced memory interface with 1GB DDR3 SODIM Memory
  • Enabling serial connectivity with PCIe Gen2x4, SFP+ and SMA Pairs, UART, IIC
  • Supports embedded processing with MicroBlaze, soft 32bit RISC
  • Develop networking applications with 10-100-1000 Mbps Ethernet (GMII, RGMII and SGMII​)
  • Implement Video display applications with HDMI out
  • Expand I/O with the FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) interface
