New Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA VC709 Connectivity Kit Accelerates Design Productivity for High-Bandwidth Applications

Fully validated and supported reference design streamlines evaluation and development of connectivity systems, enabling faster time-to-market

SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 8, 2013 — (PRNewswire) —  Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) announced availability of its Virtex®-7 FPGA VC709 Connectivity Kit, a 40 Gbps platform that enables designers to accelerate design productivity for high-bandwidth and high-performance applications, such as network interface cards for security, network monitoring, and high frequency trading appliances.  Ideal for customers needing to prototype their low power, high performance, single-chip PCIe® Gen3, 40Gbps Ethernet applications, the kit includes a fully validated and supported reference design running on a Virtex-7 X690T FPGA, design tools, and IP cores that streamline the evaluation and development of connectivity systems, enabling reduced development costs and faster time-to-market.

"The Virtex-7 FPGA VC709 Connectivity Kit dramatically increases designer productivity by offering a targeted reference design that allows customers to focus on building and optimizing their own applications," said Raj Seelam, director of Solutions Marketing at Xilinx. "Typical applications of this highly optimized reference design include high-performance computing prototyping in wired telecommunications and wireless infrastructure applications."

"As the industry moves from Big Data to Big Fast Data, businesses need to analyze massive volumes of streaming data instantaneously. To meet this demand, rENIAC designed a  high bandwidth data analytics platform that analyzes tens of thousands of transactions right at the edge of a 10GbE network in real-time," said Prasanna Sundararajan, CEO at rENIAC. "Using the multiple 10G ports, 10G MAC and DDR3 IP provided as part of the reference design in the VC709 connectivity kit, we went from concept to implementation in 1/3 of traditional design times."

The kit includes the Vivado™ Design Suite, the industry's first SoC-strength design environment, to enable accelerated design cycles and the industry standard FMC I/O expansion header, compatible with over 100 daughter cards, to enable faster prototyping.  A fully validated and supported targeted reference design that integrates the entire PCIe Gen3, AXI, Ethernet and DDR3 subsystem with both the HDL and the entire software stack, as well as an evaluation license of the Northwest Logic DMA IP core is also included in the connectivity kit.

Availability
The Virtex-7 FPGA VC709 Connectivity Kit is priced at $4,995 and is now shipping. Please visit www.xilinx.com/vc709 for more information and to see a video of the kit contents.
