VXS Developers Kit
  • Overview


To accelerate the development process, a Developer’s Kit can be purchased for all VXS products which provides FPGA cores, software and source code reference design examples. This allows rapid interfacing of user applications to the on-board memory resources and off-board data links. The kit includes a design example showing how to achieve simple raw mode data links via the backplane to other FPGA based VXS payload cards, such as those in the Quixilica range. A further example illustrates use of the front panel data links to link the card to an external host via a UDP/Gigabit Ethernet link.

VXS Application Developer's Kit

This kit provides the following items:
