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.
Eight high-speed gigabit transceivers are available with standard support for PCI Express, DisplayPort, HD-SDI, XAUI, Aurora, SATA, and others operating up to 6.6 Gb/s (12.5 Gb/s optional).
Measured performance at over 340 MiB/s for real-world data transfers to/from the PC.
Integrated 512-MiByte DDR3 provides plenty of on-board memory for high-performance applications, including image capture and data acquisition.
Integrated device sensors provide real-time measurement of temperature as well as voltage and current of the on-board high-efficiency switching power supplies. Measurements are available via the API.
