Overview

Product Description

The Virtex®-7 FPGA VC7203 Characterization Kit provides the hardware environment for characterizing and evaluating 28 GTX (12.5Gbps) transceivers of the on-board Virtex-7 V485T FPGA. The VC7203 allows evaluation of the Integrated Bit Error Ratio Test (IBERT) demonstration using either the Vivado™ or ISE® design suites. Each GTX Quad and its associated reference clock are routed from the FPGA to a connector pad which is designed to interface with a Samtec BullsEye connector.  A cable enabled with a BullsEye connector and 10 standard SMAs allows users to connect to a broad range of evaluation platforms, from backplanes and optical evaluation boards to high speed test equipment.  Each BullsEye connector handles a full GTX Quad, four transmit/receive pairs as well as the two independent reference clocks, enabling the highest level of flexibility in testing custom applications.
