X-ES XPedite2300 XMC FPGA Module and Development Kit

Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) introduced their XPedite2300 XMC module. The XPedite2300 features a Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA and support for daughter cards. The XPedite2300 module is ideal for data streaming applications that require real-time signal processing, such as video surveillance, signals intelligence, and infrared threat detection. X-ES also announced the XPedite2300 FPGA Development Kit (FDK). The embedded FPGA development environment simplifies the development of high-performance, real-time, streaming data applications that run on the XPedite2300 FPGA board.
