The ADA-SDEV-KIT3 is a Development Kit for the Xilinx Radiation Tolerant Kintex Ultrascale XQRKU060 Space-Grade FPGA.
The Xilinx XQRKU060 is a leap forward in Space-Grade FPGA performance, providing around 5x the performance of the previous generation of Space Grade FPGA. This enables the deployment in space of far more advanced communications, signal processing, image processing and machine learning applications.
The board powers the FPGA with a reference TI power supply design, based around the TPS7H4001-SP 18A QMLV Buck Converter, and other Space Grade TI parts.
With a reference power supply in place, the Alpha Data ADA-SDEV-KIT3 not only allows the user to prototype their FPGA application in the lab, and validate its performance with realistic power constraints, it can also help fast track the development of the Space deployable system providing a proven Space Grade capable design for much of the FPGA support circuitry.
Modular design with Industrial XCKU060 in -1 speed grade, One user HPC FMC+ and one user LPC FMC site for user use of 3rd party FMC cards, XRTC compatible Configuration FMC Module, DDR3 DRAM in a SODIMM, System Monitoring and reference Space-Grade Power and Temperature Sensing solutions from Texas Instruments, using electro mechanically compatible parts. See http://www.ti.com/tool/ALPHA-XILINX-KU060-SPACE for further details.
The ADA-SDEV-KIT3 is a minor enhancement to the previous version, allowing improved FMC compatibility between 3rd party FMC cards on the user slots and introducing the next generation Configuration FMC module for the XRTC Config-FMC site: the ADM-SDEV-CFG2.
This enhanced configuration module, allows easier access for third party microcontroller boards to access the SelectMap for scrubbing solution implementation, with a 60 way SAMTEC QSH connector holding the QSPI devices on a daughter module, allowing them to be easily replaced by a cable. A Gigabit Ethernet PHY with RJ45 connector and RS232/485 serial connections allow far better support for microblaze based applications.
