Product Description: 

The Xilinx Virtex-II Pro Development Kit provides a complete development platform for designing and verifying applications based on the Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FPGA family. The kit enables designers to implement embedded processor based applications with extreme flexibility using IP cores and customized modules.

The kit bundles the Xilinx Embedded Development Kit (EDK) with an advanced Virtex-II Pro hardware platform, cables, power supply, and reference designs. Xilinx ISE software and a JTAG cable are also required and available as kit options. The EDK includes standard peripherals, GNU-based software tools, and system configuration tools. The GNU-based development tools are composed of a C-compiler, assembler, linker, and debugger.

The Virtex-II Pro FF1152 system board is available with either the P20 or P50 Virtex-II Pro device (XC2VP20-6FF1152 or XC2VP50-6FF1152). The system board includes two independent memory blocks of 8M x 32 SDRAM, five clock sources, two RS-232 ports, a high-speed 16-bit LVDS interface supporting SPI-4.2, two iSFP GbE optical interfaces, a 10/100 Ethernet PHY, an IDE connector, and additional user support circuitry to develop a complete system. The board also supports the Avnet P160 expansion module standard, allowing application specific expansion modules to be easily added. A System ACEâ„¢ interface on the Virtex-II Pro system board provides the flexibility to store multiple FPGA configuration options in removable CompactFlash cards.

The Virtex-II Pro Platform FPGA family has the advanced features needed to fit the most demanding, high performance applications. This next generation Xilinx Virtex-II Pro FF1152 Development Kit provides an excellent platform to explore these features so you can quickly and effectively meet your time-to-market requirements.
