Opal Kelly XEM6110 Spartan-6 FPGA Module

Opal Kelly introduced the XEM6110 FPGA integration module. The Opal Kelly XEM6110 features the Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA, external PCI Express, 1 Gb (64M x 16 bit) DDR2 SDRAM, high-efficiency switching power supplies, two high-density 0.8-mm expansion connectors, and a low-jitter 100-MHz oscillator. The external PCI Express interface enables fast configuration downloads without requiring a PC reboot and PC-FPGA communication. The XEM6110 Starter Kit will be available on December 1 for $995. The kit includes: XEM6110 ($800 individually), PCI1001 (host interface board), BRK6110 (breakout board), power supply, and a 3-meter cable.
