KINTEX 7 series FPGAs not only have high flexibility to deal with different standards, parallel processing and customizable interfaces, but also provide integrated functions such as high-performance DSP, memory, analog and I/O interfaces, which can help designers more easily embed software. A processor to control data flow and manage a large number of interfaces in the system.



The Kintex-7 series is a new type of Xilinx FPGA that can achieve its equivalent performance at less than half the price of the Virtex-6 series, doubling the price/performance ratio and reducing power consumption by half. This series not only provides high-performance 10.3Gbps or low-cost optimized 6.5Gbps serial connectivity, memory and logic performance required for various applications such as high-volume 10G optical wired communication equipment, but also achieves signal processing performance and power. The optimal balance of power consumption and cost can support long-term evolution (LTE) wireless network deployment, meet the strict power consumption and cost requirements of the new generation of high-definition 3D flat panel displays, and provide the performance and bandwidth required by the next-generation broadcast video-on-demand system. 

The TL-K7FMC acquisition card is a FMC data acquisition card independently developed by Guangzhou Chuanglong based on Xilinx Kintex-7 series FPGAs. It fully supports the PCI Express 2.0 standard. The serial high-speed input and output SRIO bus provides stable, reliable high-speed through the HDMI interface. The transmission capability provides great convenience for the rapid prototyping of products. The FMC interface of the TL-K7FMC acquisition card not only simplifies the design of the I/O interface module, provides high-speed interface communication capabilities, but also improves the utilization rate of the module. The standardized design makes the product more versatile. It can be matched with Chuanglong TMS320C6655, TMS320C6657 and TMS320C6678 development boards are used, and the size of the capture card is 200mm*106.65mm.

Use technology

The new unified architecture supports scalability and increased productivity. All 7 series FPGAs use a unified architecture, allowing customers to relax in terms of functionality, which can not only reduce costs and power consumption, but also improve performance and capacity, thereby reducing low cost and high cost. Investment in the development and deployment of performance products. The architecture is based on the highly successful Virtex-6 series architecture and is designed to simplify the reuse of current Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGA design solutions. In addition, the architecture is supported by the proven EasyPath? FPGA cost reduction solution, which ensures a 35% cost reduction without the need for incremental conversion or engineering investment, which further increases productivity.

For customers who want to use the latest 7 series FPGAs to further save energy or improve system performance and capacity, they can first use Virtex-6 and Spartan-6 FPGAs to design, and then migrate the design when the time is ripe. This unified architecture is simplified with the adoption of Xilinx’s AMBA AXI interconnect standard, supporting the use of plug-and-play IP, which helps customers increase productivity and reduce development costs.

Andy Norton, chief technology officer of system architecture at SAIC’s Cloudshield Technologies, noted: “Xilinx has enabled these products to support IP reuse, portability, and predictability by integrating the 6-LUT architecture and collaborating with ARM on the AMBA specification work. A unified architecture, a new processor-centric device that changes the inherent thinking model, and a layered design process using next-generation tools can not only greatly improve productivity, flexibility, and system-on-chip performance, but also Simplify the migration of previous generation architecture."

These products use the same logic architecture, Block RAM, clock technology, DSP slicing, and SelectIO? technology, and are based on the previous generation of products using Xilinx's patented Virtex series ASMBL? module architecture. The new generation ASMBL architecture provides unprecedented high flexibility and scalability, enabling customers to efficiently and comprehensively take advantage of logic density.
