ADI FMC boards support Xilinx’ new fpga evaluation kits

Analog Devices has introduced two data converter FMC boards (fpga mezzanine cards) that connect to Xilinx' new 28nm 7 series fpga evaluation kits.

ADI's high speed AD9739A d/a converter and AD9467 a/d converter FMC boards support multiple generations of Xilinx kits, including the company's new Kintex-7 fpga evaluation kits.

According to ADI, the new FMC boards include all of the hardware description language code and device drivers needed for designers to engage in rapid prototyping and reduce development time.

"The availability of low cost commercial off the shelf hardware, such as the AD9739A FMC board, and new Kintex-7 development boards, allows our customers to quickly prototype and evaluate many of the IP cores which we offer," said Jean-Claude Basset, technical director/manager, MVD Cores – a certified member of the Xilinx Alliance Program. "We have verified our digital rf up converter IP cores with the AD9739A FMC board and Xilinx' Virtex-6, Kintex-7 and Spartan-6 boards and recommend that our customers use this hardware to evaluate our IP cores.
