The Opal Kelly XEM6110 is the first module in a new
product family of compact FPGA integration modules using external PCI Express.
XEM6110 is a compact (7 x 50 mm) FPGA module, featuring a Xilinx Spartan-6, 64
M x 16 bit DDR2 SDRAM, high-efficiency switching power supplies, two
high-density 0.8 mm expansion connectors and a low-jitter 100-MHz oscillator. The
external PCI Express interface enables fast configuration downloads without
requiring a PC reboot and PC-FPGA communication. Sharing a common footprint
with the XEM3010 and XEM3050, most designs can be migrated to the new XEM6110
without a PCB change.
Starter Kit will be available on December 1. The kit includes:
XEM6110, PCI1001 (host interface board), BRK6110 (breakout board), power
supply, and a 3-meter cable.
During a teardown of the iPad Air and Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at the Medical Design & Manufacturing Show in Schaumburg, Ill., an engineer showed this "inflammatory" video about the dangers of maliciously mishandling lithium-ion batteries.
The Window Watcher stops the burglar before he does damage or enters the house. House alarm service companies set off alarms and call the service only after the burglar has damaged and entered the house.
If you’re designing a handheld device or industrial machine that will employ a user interface, then you’ll want to check out the upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center course, "Engineering Principles Behind Advanced User Interface Technologies.”
