Avnet Electronics Marketing (Phoenix, AZ) has introduced the Xilinx Kintex(TM)-7 FPGA Mini-Module Plus Development Kit – a completely customizable development kit for system architects and field programmable gate array (FPGA) designers. The Avnet Mini-Module Plus system consists of a modular baseboard with three slots supporting a FPGA module, a power supply module and an optional FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) application module. The Xilinx Kintex(TM)-7 FPGA version of the kit is the first of three planned kit offerings, with future modules planned for the Xilinx Artix(TM)-7 FPGA and Zynq(TM)-7000 EPP. The FPGA module is based on either the Xilinx Kintex(TM)-7 K410T or K325T FPGAs, and includes DDR3 memory, 64 Mb Flash memory, 10/100/1000 Ethernet PHY, USB 3.0 PHY, system clock, 8 Gigabit transceivers MGTs and 132 user input/output (I/O). The on-board 10/100/1000 Ethernet port, accompanied by a USB 3.0 port, adds expanded networking capabilities, while the configurable I/O and gigabit transceivers (MGTs) offer versatile interface options.
