Xilinx Targeted Design Platforms (TDPs) are comprehensive development kits, complete with boards, ISE® Design Suite tools, IP cores, reference designs and FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) support, enabling designers to begin application development immediately.
The base TDP platform is both the delivery vehicle for all new silicon offerings from Xilinx and the foundation upon which all Xilinx targeted design platforms are built. It comprises a robust set of well-integrated, tested and targeted elements that enable customers to immediately start a design. These include:
Each domain-specific platform targets one of the three primary Xilinx FPGA user profiles (domains): the embedded processing developer, the digital signal processing (DSP) developer, or the logic/connectivity developer.
Domain-specific platforms augment the base platform with a predictable, reliable, and intelligently targeted set of integrated technologies, including:
Every element in these platforms is tested, targeted, and supported by Xilinx and/or our ecosystem partners. Starting a design with the appropriate domain-specific platform can cut weeks, if not months, off of the user's development time.
A market-specific platform is an integrated combination of technologies that enables software or hardware developers to quickly build and then run their specific application or solution. The market-specific platform can rely more heavily on third-party targeted IP than the base or domain-specific platforms. The market-specific platform includes:
