The Kintex-7 FPGA Connectivity Kit is a 20Gb/s platform for high-bandwidth and high-performance applications containing all the necessary hardware, tools and IP to power quickly through your evaluation and development of connectivity systems. This includes a 20Gb/s targeted reference design featuring PCI Express, a DMA IP core from Northwest Logic, 10GBase-R, AXI, and a Virtual FIFO memory controller interfacing to an external DDR3 memory. To control and monitor this design, the board includes a connectivity GUI built on Fedora Live OS which includes all the software drivers. Additionally, this board contains the relevant SFP+ FMC daughter card, cable and transceiver modules needed to utilize this design.

Xilinx products are warranted to be free from manufacturing defects for 90 days from the date of purchase. No other express or implied warranties are provided.
