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.
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
In today’s connected world we are seeing the beginning of connected homes, smart grids, self-driving automobiles, drones, and many other amazing devices. Out of all the soon-to-be connected devices, which device poses the greatest dangerous to its users and society?
