The Consumer Video Kit, Foundation edition gives systems designers a complete development platform for easily tapping into the flexibility and real-time video processing capabilities of Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs).
At the heart of the Consumer Video Kit is a Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA, a low-cost, low-power programmable logic device that designers can use to simulate video algorithms in silicon during the development phase and then move into production without having to worry about coding video interface infrastructure. Spartan-6 FPGAs deliver 30% lower power and 15% faster performance than competing FPGAs to support emerging technologies such as locally dimmed LED and super-high resolution 4K2K (Quad HD), which are driving up the bandwidth requirements for next-generation displays.
The CVK2 Foundation kit includes the TB-6S-LX150T-IMG2 base board, built around the Spartan-6 FPGA. This base board comes equipped with:
- 3 x 1Gbit DDR3 SDRAM
- 128 Mbit SPI Flash configuration ROM
- 3 FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC) connectors (1 x VITA-57 high pin count, 2 x low pin count)
- 4 x 4 LVDS crosspoint switch
- Multiple clock sources
- Push button switches, DIP switches, pin headers, and LEDs
- USB port for connection to a PC.
The CVK2 Foundation kit also comes with the LVDS FMC Option Card. This allows for conversion between the FMC connector on the base board and 2 Hirose FX-15 series LVDS connectors.
