FPGA integration moduleThe Opal Kelly XEM6110 integration module is based on a Xilinx Spartan-6 (XC6SLX45) FPGA. In addition to a high gate-count FPGA, the module uses the blazing transfer rate of PCI Express for configuration downloads, enabling an almost instant reprogramming of the FPGA, without shutting down the computer. The company’s FrontPanel software interface is a robust API for communication, configuration, and interfacing to a PC. FrontPanel handles all the interaction between the software and the FPGA internals. The XEM6110 is designed to be compatible with the company’s XEM3010 expansion connectors in most applications, providing an easy migration path. The integration module is suited for product prototyping and integration into OEM devices where an external (cabled) PCI Express interface, flexible hardware solution, or PC software interface would be useful. It can be added to a new board design to provide turnkey PCI Express integration with Opal Kelly’s software programmer's interface and existing PCI drivers.
