Xilinx Virtex-6 HXT FPGA Optical Transport Network Design Platform

Xilinx introduced the Virtex-6 HXT FPGA Optical Transport Network (OTN) Targeted Design Platform. The OTN Targeted Design Platform features a Virtex-6 HXT FPGA development board with pre-defined and implemented reference designs for different OTN solutions, such as 100G ODU switching from Xilinx, 100G Ethernet to OTU4 transponders and 10×10 to OTU4 transponders. The OTN platform also includes a highly optimized IP 100G MuxSAR solution developed by Omiino. The Virtex-6 HXT FPGA OTN Kit will be available in April for $25,000 (without optical modules).
