The XEM3010 is an integration module based on a 1,500,000-gate Xilinx Spartan-3 FPGA (XEM3010-1500P) or 1,000,000-gate (XEM3010-1000). In addition to a high gate-count FPGA, the XEM3010 utilizes the high transfer rate of USB 2.0 for configuration downloads, enabling speedy FPGA configuration and data transfer. With integrated SDRAM, power supplies, and platform flash, the XEM3010 is the most popular Spartan-3 module.
Opal Kelly's FrontPanel SDK is an easy-to-use, robust API for communication, configuration, and interfacing to your PC, Mac or Linux hardware. FrontPanel handles all the interaction between your software and the FPGA internals, dramatically reducing the time and effort required to interface to a design.
Opal Kelly FPGA integration modules are designed to be the ideal turnkey solution for prototypes and OEM product integration. With the complete FrontPanel SDK, there's simply no faster, more reliable, production-ready way to jump start your FPGA design.
If you need standalone operation, Xilinx Platform Flash can configure the FPGA on startup and still allow you to communicate over USB.
Integrated 32-MByte SDRAM provides plenty of on-board memory for high-performance applications, including image capture and data acquisition.
The on-board PLL provides flexible clocking to the FPGA and expansion connectors.
High-efficiency switching power supplies provide stable, dependable power to the FPGA. In most applications, there is enough extra juice to also supply your board.
