FPGA (XC7A100T) + ARM + DDR3 SODIMM socket + GbE LAN development platform


KEY FEATURES
  • State-of-the-art digital signal processing platform comprising
    • Large 7-series Xilinx FPGA (XC7A100T-1) FPGA for massive parallel computing
    • ARM 32-bit co-processor @100MHz (LPC1768) for complementary sequential computing
    • 204-pin SODIMM socket for an optional (1 through 8 GB typ.) DDR3 memory module. 20+ Gbps effective throughput
    • 1Gbit NAND flash for non-volatile storage of numerous FPGA configurations and user data
    • Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 tied to FPGA for maximum throughput
    • Auxiliary DAC: 12-bit precision, 1 MSamples/s for gain control
    • Hi-stability frequency reference: internal VC-TCXO or external frequency reference via UMCC connector
  • Comprehensive environment through plug-in modules
    • HDMI input/output and additional gigabit Ethernet transceiver (COM-5102)
    • 4 SATA disks interfaces (COM-5103)
    • High-speed analog/digital converters (COM-3504, COM-2802)
    • RF receivers (COM-30xx)
  • The COM-1800 is compatible with a comprehensive development environment of free industry-standard tools:
    • Xilinx Vivado for development from VHDL or Verilog source code to FPGA binary [from Xilinx]
    • Eclipse IDE + GNU ARM tool chain + flashmagic from C/C++ source code to ARM binary
    • ComBlock flashloader to program the FPGA and ARM binaries into the board non-volatile flash memory over USB. [included]
    Supports multiple personalities and dynamic reconfiguration
  • 4 custom FPGA configurations can be stored in non-volatile flash memory
  • The selected configuration is automatically reloaded at power up or upon software command
  • Graphical User Interface is used for remote monitoring and control over a USB or TCP link. This includes loading the FPGA configuration file into non-volatile flash memory
  • ComScope-enabled: key internal signals can be captured in real-time and displayed on the host computer
