Overview

The Mercury KX1 module offers the best performance-to-price-ratio Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGAs in conjunction with the latest high-speed standard interfaces like USB 3.0, PCIe 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet.

With powerful FPGA and standard interfaces, many LVDS-capable I/Os, large DDR3 SDRAM and many high-speed DSP slices, the KX1 is as well-suited for high-end digital signal processing, communications and networking as it is for high-speed I/O applications.

The Mercury KX1 FPGA board reduces development effort, redesign risk and improves time-to-market.

 

Highlights

  • Features the latest best performance-per-price Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA family
  • Provides a powerful and easy to use Cypress EZ-USB® FX3™ based USB 3.0 device interface
  • Provides dual Gigabit Ethernet PHYs for high-bandwidth/low-latency networking
  • Provides PCIe 2.0 x4 endpoint for high-speed data transfer
  • Smaller than a credit card
  • Only requires a single supply voltage (5 to 15V)

Benefits

  • Vast amount of parallel processing power for DSP applications (up to 1540 DSP Slices at 741 MHz = 1.14 TMAC/s)
  • High-bandwidth data I/O due to the large number of available LVDS pairs
  • Simple and low-cost integration due to standard interfaces (USB 3.0, PCIe 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet), single supply voltage and 1.8V / 2.5V / 3.3V power outputs
  • Big and high-bandwidth data memory due to DDR3 SDRAM
  • Many IP cores are available from Xilinx, Enclustra and third parties.
  • Simplified carrier board design (typically 4 layers)
 

Features

  • Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA in the 676-pin package
  • Small form factor (72 x 54 mm, dual 168-pin Hirose FX10 connectors)
  • 158 User I/Os, single-ended or differential
    • 11 differential analog input channels
  • Up to 64 MB Quad SPI Flash
  • Up to 2048 MB + 512 MB DDR3 SDRAM
  • Cypress EZ-USB FX3 USB 3.0 device interface
  • 4 MGTs (6.6/10.3125 Gb/s) with integrated PCIe 2.0 x4 endpoint
  • Dual Gigabit Ethernet PHYs
  • High-power 16A core power supply
