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.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
