Spartan 6 fpga module with external PCI expres

Opal Kelly has announced a compact fpga integration module with external PCI Express, which is said to provide faster time to market for high speed, low latency applications.

The XEM6110 is based on the Xilinx Spartan 6 and has been designed to deliver five times faster transfer rates compared to USB, as well as lower latency. The 75 x 50mm module features 1Gbit (64M x 16bit) DDR2 sdram, high efficiency switching power supplies, two high density 0.8mm expansion connectors, and a low jitter 100MHz oscillator. The external PCI Express interface is said to enable fast configuration downloads without requiring a pc reboot and pc to fpga communication.
