Opal Kelly’s new Artix-based USB 3.0 Integration Module comes with two sizes of FPGA: Big and Bigger

2017年1月18日 | By News | Filed in: News.



Three years ago, Opal Kelly introduced an enhanced version of its XEM6310 USB 3.0 FPGA module based on the Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA family. (See “Need a fast way to develop complex, real-time USB 3.0 peripheral devices? This 60x75mm FPGA-based module can help.”) Now, the company has revamped the product using Xilinx Artix-7 FPGAs to create the XEM7310 USB 3.0 integration module.

It has the same, diminutive 50x75mm footprint and the same set of dual 80-pin high-density connectors on the bottom, but the silicon resources on the board have been seriously upgraded.


First, the two available Artix-7 FPGAs on the XEM7310 board (Artix-7 A75 or A200 devices) provide significantly more programmable-logic resources than the Spartan-6 devices available on the older XEM6310. Here’s a chart showing what the XEM7310 provides:

Next, the XEM7310 board incorporates eight times as much SDRAM (1Gbyte of DDR3 SDRAM versus 128Mbytes of DDR2 SDRAM).


The XEM7310 board’s system clock is 200MHz rather than 100MHz for the older product.


One thing’s similar: the new board has complete APIs in C, C++, C#, Ruby, Python, and Java like the earlier XEM6310.


The XEM7310-A75 sells for $549.95 and the XEM7310-A200 sells for $799.95, in unit quantities.
