Avnet Electronics Marketing is offering a Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA DSP development kit for $1,995, including a device-locked version of Xilinx' ISE Design Suite: System Edition 11.4.
The Spartan-6 DSP development kit provides an easy entry point for using FPGAs for DSP, according to Avnet (Phoenix). The kit is targeted toward aerospace and defense, wireless, ISM and other computationally-intensive applications that demand DSP performance and cost effective solutions, the firm said.
The development kit combines a scalable development board, DSP IP, DSP development tools and a preconfigured and fully validated Spartan-6 DSP targeted reference design, Avnet said. This design serves as a basis to illustrate DSP techniques and design flows for the Spartan-6 class of signal processing functions, according to the company.
The Spartan-6 DSP targeted reference design includes design source files for RTL and Simulink, top-level system integration RTL source files, a simulation environment, testbenches, an implementation environment, complete steps and parameters for design synthesis and other components, according to Avnet.
More information about the development kit is available on Avnet's website.
