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.
The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
