Product Description

Quickly evaluate and integrate SD/HD/3G-SDI, AES3 Audio and other interfaces into next-generation broadcast designs. The Virtex®-6 FPGA Broadcast Connectivity Kit integrates the high performance of the Virtex-6 FPGA family, IP building blocks, design tools, reference designs, and a serial digital/audio development board. Developed specifically to address the rapidly evolving requirements in the broadcast market for greater bandwidth, improved jitter performance and lower power consumption, the Virtex-6 FPGA Broadcast Connectivity Kit includes a serial digital audio and video connectivity FPGA mezzanine card (FMC).

Key Features & Benefits

  • Hardware, design tools, IP, and pre-verified reference designs
  • Enabling serial connectivity with PCIe Gen2x4, Gen1x8, 1 SFP, 1 SMA Pair, and UART
  • Supports embedded processing with MicroBlaze, soft 32bit RISC
  • 10/100/1000 Tri-Speed Ethernet (RJ-45)
  • DDR3 SO-DIMM (512 MB)
  • Expand I/O with the FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) interface
