The folks at Opal Kelly – producers of powerful FPGA modules that provide essential device-to-computer interconnect using PCI Express or USB 2.0 – have announced two industrial-temperature versions of their recently-released module XEM6010 module.
Based on the powerful, Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA with high-speed USB 2.0 interface for downloading and communication, the new XEM6010-LX45I and XEM6010-LX150I are specified for the full industrial temperature range of -40ºC to +85ºC.
The XEM6010 is ideally suited to prototyping systems and integration into OEM devices where a USB interface, flexible hardware solution, or PC (Windows, Mac, or Linux) software interface would be useful. The XEM6010 can easily be added to a new board design to provide turnkey USB integration with the convenience of the Opal Kelly FrontPanel SDK and USB drivers.
Available in two FPGA densities and now available in commercial and industrial temperature ranges, the XEM6010-LX45 and XEM6010-LX45I are specified for the commercial (-0ºC to +70ºC) and industrial (-40ºC to +85ºC) temperature ranges, respectively. The XEM6010-LX150 and XEM6010-LX150I are the higher-density versions. All models include high-speed USB 2.0 FPGA configuration and data transfer, integrated DDR2 SDRAM, power supplies, and configuration flash.
The XEM6010-LX45I is offered at $424.95 / each (quantity 100+). The XEM6010-LX150I is offered at $749.95 / each (quantity 50+). Both are available now from the Opal Kelly Online Store. The modules include the Opal Kelly FrontPanel SDK and USB driver and email support, as well as access to an active online User Forum.
