"The Kintex-7 FPGA Connectivity Kit helps increase our customers' productivity by offering a Targeted Reference Design that removes much of the tedious work customers would otherwise have to do on their own. They can focus on what they do best – building and optimizing their own applications," said Raj Seelam, director of marketing at Xilinx. "This highly optimized reference design can be used in production systems or as a proven base for custom modifications which significantly improves our customers' time-to-market."

The Kintex-7 FPGA Connectivity Kit provides a comprehensive, out-of-the box design environment that includes a 20 Gb/s Targeted Reference Design (TRD) to jump-start application development. The reference design integrates the Kintex-7 device's 12.5 Gb/s GTX transceivers and PCIe x8 Gen2 hard block with a high-performance 10G DMA IP core from Northwest Logic, dual 10G Ethernet links using 10GBASE-R PHY interface, a virtual FIFO memory controller interfacing to an external DDR3 memory and supports the AMBA® AXI4 (Advanced eXtensible Interface 4) standard.  

The reference design provides designers with a high-performance solution for high bandwidth applications such as wired telecommunications and wireless infrastructure, audio, video, and broadcast solutions; high-end consumer markets; aerospace and defense (A&D) and high-performance computing storage applications. Also provided are the software drivers, driver source code and a GUI to enable users to control and evaluate the design more quickly.
