Tokyo Electron Device Unveils of 3 inrevium FPGA PCI Express Platforms

Tokyo Electron Device Limited (TED) has announced the release of three inrevium Virtex®-5 High-Density PCI Express Platforms. These PCI Express Gen 1 & 2 capable platforms utilize Xilinx Virtex-5 LX330T, SX240T and FX200T FPGAs, the highest density FPGAs available. “In recent years, high performance embedded systems require FPGAs with higher speed, density and performance,” said Yasuo Hatsumi, Director and Xilinx Product Manager, PLD Solution Division of TED. “Further, with shorter product life cycles, customers demand FPGA evaluation platforms that are flexible and meet diversified needs.”

The inrevium TB-5V-LX330T/SX240T/FX200T-PCIE-EX is equipped with the highest density Virtex-5 FPGAs with high speed serial I/O and PCI Express Gen 1 and Gen 2 interfaces. Expansion I/O connectors enable a wide variety of interfaces by connecting various optional boards such as DVI, AD/DA, FCRAM. In addition, the large-scale ASIC prototype development can be realized by a cable connecting of multiple FPGA boards.

As future products, TED plans to release a variety of optional boards: 10G and 1Gigabit Ethernet, DDR3 SDRAM, HD-SDI, LVDS, CameraLink, SFP optical module.

The inrevium TB-5V-LX330T/SX240T/FX200T-PCIE-EX includes reference designs to reduce development period of FPGA designs and software designs.

The TB-5V-LX330T/SX240T/FX200T-PCIE-EX features:

  • Xilinx XC5VLX330T/SX240T/FX200T-2FFG1738
  • Xilinx XCF128X
  • Elpida DDR2-SDRAM component (512Mbit/Data bus 16bit)
  • 512MB DDR2-SDRAM SO-DIMM (512MBYTE SO-DIMM module is attached)
  • Linear Technology Power Solution LTM4601, LTM4616, LTC3026, LTC3413
  • SAMTEC Expansion I/O connectors 120pin x3 (Type A)
  • SAMTEC RocketIO Expansion I/O connectors (4ch) x4 (Type R)
  • Reference designs: PCI Express design with DMA controller of DDR2 SDRAM SO-DIMM (VerilogHDL), application software (binary)

The inrevium Virtex-5 High-Density PCI Express Platforms target ASIC prototyping, wired and wireless communications, and test and measurement applications, broadcast videos, medical imaging, defense, and high-performance computing applications.

TED will showcase the inrevium Virtex-5 High-Density PCI Express Platforms in Xilinx Booth #F-29 at “Embedded Technology 2008″, from November 19 to November 21 at Pacifico Yokohama, Yokohama, Japan.
