This development kit has been discontinued per PDN advisory XCN19008 and is no longer offered for sale. The solutions targeted for this product will not be updated moving forward with limited support available from AMD.
The Kintex 7 FPGA KC724 Characterization Kit provides the hardware environment for characterizing and evaluating 16 GTX (12.5Gbps) transceivers of the on-board Kintex 7 K325T FPGA. The KC724 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.
