X-ES Announces Rugged, Configurable XPedite2500 XMC Module with High-Density Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ FPGA

April 10, 2019

Extreme Engineering Solutions (X-ES) today introduces the XPedite2500, a rugged XMC module based on the high-performance Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ XCKU115 FPGA. Available in conduction- and air-cooled configurations, the XPedite2500 brings formidable signal processing capabilities to the XMC form factor.

High-Density FPGA Arrives on the Mezzanine

The XPedite2500 is the first mezzanine card from X-ES to feature the Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale™ family of FPGAs. These devices provide an ideal blend of performance and cost-effectiveness for the next generation of embedded applications, delivering the best price/performance/watt at 20 nm and the highest signal processing bandwidth in a mid-range device.

The XPedite2500 is based on the Kintex® UltraScale™ XCKU115, which has the highest density of logic elements in the Kintex® UltraScale™ family. This user-programmable device boasts ample resources for high-end logic and signal processing, including over 1.4 M system logic cells, 5,520 DSP slices, and 75.9 Mb of block RAM.

Flexible Design Accommodates Many Applications

System integration possibilities abound with the XPedite2500, which offers a versatile XMC processing solution that can be installed in both VPX and VME systems. Featuring up to 8 GB of DDR4 SDRAM in four independent channels and numerous options for high-bandwidth I/O, this card is equipped to process streaming data from a wide array of inputs. In addition to a x8 PCI Express Gen3 interface on the P15 connector, it has up to eight High-Speed Serial ports on the P16 connector, which can optionally be configured as a second x8 PCI Express interface. Nineteen LVDS pairs are available on P16, while an optional P14 connector adds 26 more LVDS pairs and 12 LVCMOS for user I/O.

Whatever the application, getting started on development is easy with the X-ES FPGA Development Kit (FDK) for Xilinx Vivado. The X-ES FDK includes IP blocks, HDL, test benches, Linux drivers, and complete example designs for the XPedite2500.
