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.
New glass coating, the design of which was inspired by two disparate examples in nature -- a moth’s eye and lotus leaf -- could mean significant improvements for solar panels, lenses, military equipment, windows, and other products in the future, thanks to the Department of Energy.
