Keysight Technologies has unveiled an updated version of its U5340A FPGA development kit. The new version allows for expanded deployment of on board IP signal processing across the full range of Keysight PCIe high-speed digitisers and the 12-bit AXIe 8-channel wideband digital receiver/digitiser.
The FPGA development kit is a complete environment for the design, verification and implementation of real-time, user-defined signal processing algorithms. The kit combines outstanding tools capabilities to exploit the full density and speed of the FPGA. The overall time-to-market is shortened with the easy-to-use development flow and debug.
Included in the kit are updates to the Mentor Graphics and Xilinx EDA tools, simplification of processes, and improvement of simulation models. These integrations allow for greater optimization of resources and a larger user core space available on the FPGA.
“The Keysight FPGA development kit allowed us to integrate our custom signal processing firmware in a timely manner, preserving the signal integrity and high-speed digitiser functionalities,” said Robert Ortman of GTRI. “Moreover, we were able to transfer our processing function from one platform to another in only a few days. This allowed us to save significant engineering efforts.”
