Continuing the Versachip xPOD series, the Kintex-7 module broadens the range of designs to include more complex and higher performance FPGA-based solutions. Taking advantage of the Kintex-7 technology, this module complements the xPOD Spartan with more than double the speed and capacity. Also on board is larger 32 bit wide DDR3 memory, more non-volatile memory, clock, power regulation, and with 124 GPIO available through an SODIMM interface.
The xPOD Kintex shortens product time to market by using the same click in modules for proof of concept, prototype, and production.
As the flagship product by Versachip, the xPOD module enables custom FPGA-based solutions to be rapidly developed on a solid, reliable, and versatile platform that reduces risk while ensuring a cost-sensitive transition path ready for the latest FPGA technologies.
Consisting of a Spartan-6 class FPGA, DDR2 memory, non-volatile memory, clock, power regulation, and with 123 GPIO (60 differential pairs) available through an SODIMM interface, the xPOD module transitions your product from prototype to production system in a snap of the xPOD module. Because there is no change in hardware from prototype to production, the xPOD greatly reduces integration time and enables you to confidently deliver on your deadlines.
The SODIMM interface of the xPOD Evaluation Kit allows software development to proceed uninhibited by hardware development thereby removing schedule risk. And, because development is done on the production hardware, there are no surprises when integrating the xPOD module into the production system thereby enabling the development team to focus on system integration and not the FPGA. The xPOD Evaluation Kit is ready for evaluation right out of the box with a pre-loaded demonstration application that exercises the major I/O of the system ensuring confidence in your solution platform.
