All Programmable Artix-7 FPGAs offer power efficiency, compactness and low
cost, as well as increased system performance for applications such as low-end
remote radio head, mobile backhaul, software defined radio, motor control and
a broad range of other applications requiring high performance and a small
footprint. With Analog Mixed Signal (AMS), DDR3, DSP resources, parallel and
serial I/O and other system-level capabilities, Artix-7 FPGAs are an excellent
choice for designers looking to reduce their BOM costs through programmable
system integration.

The evaluation kit includes a device locked license for Xilinx's Vivado™
Design Suite, Design Edition, the industry's first SoC strength design
environment. This evaluation kit offers more than ten reference designs
including a powerful PCIe® and DDR3 subsystem with an IP license for the full
version of Northwest Logic's DMA Back-End Core for use in customer designs.
The AMS 101 evaluation card paired with the AMS reference design –are the
perfect vehicle to evaluate how to use AMS to reduce BOM costs for everything
from simple system monitoring to more complex analog functions.

Availability

The Artix-7 FPGA AC701 Evaluation Kit is priced at $1,295 and open for order
entry at www.xilinx.com/ac701.
