PLDA XpressV7-LP PCIe FPGA Design Kit Features Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA

The XpressV7-LP is PLDA’s latest FPGA design kit. The XpressV7-LP features a FPGA-based low-profile PCI Express form factor card with 40Gb of Ethernet connectivity and 8 GBytes of DDR3 SDRAM. The FPGA kit is delivered with PLDA’s PCIe 3.0 IP and optional 10G UDP/TCP stack IP, specifically optimized for the Xilinx Virtex-7 FPGA. The PLDA XpressV7-LP FPGA Design Kit will ship in October.

The PLDA XpressV7-LP FPGA design kit is a complete design environment for applications using PCIe and 10GbE as their main communication interfaces. The XpressV7-LP is a highly integrated, production-ready, low-profile PCI Express FPGA card with quad-10Gb Ethernet (40GbE) engineered for both prototyping and field deployment. The PCIe and Ethernet architecture designed into the PLDA XpressV7-LP is ideal for enabling real-time network processing applications, such as financial trading and data mining.
