The Opal Kelly XEM5010 is a new integration module based on a XC5VLX50 Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA. In addition to a high gate-count, high-performance FPGA, the XEM5010 utilizes the high transfer rate of USB 2.0 for configuration downloads, enabling an almost instant reprogramming of the FPGA.
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.
Two completely independent 128-MByte DDR2 SDRAMs are great for high-performance applications where separate memory busses are required. Total memory bandwidth is 2.128-GB/s or 17.024-Gb/s.
A wide-bus (36-bit), 1Mx36 SSRAM is directly connected to the FPGA for high-speed, synchronous, static storage.
An 32-Mbit SPI Serial Flash device is included for non-volatile storage of both FPGA configuration and post-configuration data.
The XEM5010 includes high-efficiency switching power supplies for the FPGA and support devices, reducing your design burden and project timeline.
