FPGA boards includes Xilinx Virtex 6 FPGA with as many as 36 high-speed serial connections

The Annapolis WILDSTAR 6/AMC boards include one Xilinx Virtex 6 FPGA with as many as 36 high-speed serial connections performing as fast as 6.5 Gbps. The IO Processing Element (IOPE) FPGA also has a choice of QDRII SRAM, DDRII+ SRAM, or DDR3 DRAM. The IOPE DRAM option has five 32-bit DRAM ports clocked at up to 400 MHz while the SRAM option has four 36-bit SRAM interfaces clocked up to 350 MHz.

WILDSTAR 6/AMC computing technology combines user-programmable, reconfigurable system gates with high memory and I/O bandwidth capacities, which enable high-density and high-performance system designs. Virtex-6 contain two platforms: LXT and SXT. Virtex-6 LXT offers high-performance logic applications solutions with a high logic-to-feature ratio and I/O-to-feature ratio. Virtex-6 SXT is a high-performance solution for () applications that carry a high DSP-to-feature ratio and memory-to-feature ratio.
