Acromag’s XMC-7A modules feature a highperformance user-configurable Xilinx® Artix®-7 FPGA enhanced with high-speed memory and a high-throughput serial bus interface. The result is a powerful and flexible I/O processor module that is capable of executing custom instruction sets and algorithms.
The logic-optimized FPGA is well-suited for a broad range of applications. Typical uses include hardware simulation, communications, in-circuit diagnostics, military servers, signal intelligence, and image processing.
Both front and rear I/O is supported. Front I/O processing is supported with plug-in AXM mezzanine cards. A variety of AXM I/O cards are available to add the flexibility of a wide range of analog and digital I/O to your design.
The rear I/O provides an 8-lane high-speed serial interface on the P16 XMC port for customerinstalled soft cores. P16 also supports 34 SelectIO channels. The P4 port adds another 60 SelectIO and global clock lines. SelectI/O signals are Artix-7 FPGA I/O pins that support single-ended I/O (LVCMOS, HSTL, SSTL) and differential I/O standards (LVDS, HT, LVPECL, BLVDS, HSTL, SSTL).
With Acromag’s Artix-7 FPGA modules, you can greatly increase DSP algorithm performance for faster throughput using multiple channels and parallel hardware architectures. Free up CPU cycles by offloading algorithmic-intensive tasks to the FPGA co-processor.
These modules are ideal for high-performance customized embedded systems. Optimize your system performance by integrating highspeed programmable logic with the flexibility of software running on MicroBlaze™ soft processors.
Acromag’s Engineering Design Kit provides software utilities and example VHDL code to simplify your program development and get you running quickly. A JTAG interface enables on-board debugging. Additional Xilinx tools
help finish your system faster. Maximize FPGA performance with Vivado® or ISE® Design Suite. And with ChipScope™ Pro tools, you can rapidly debug logic and serial interfaces.
