Default Virtex5 Evaluation Board

Hi

We are thinking of buying a Xilinx Virtex5 evaluation board. At the
moment this one seems to be our favorite:

http://www.xilinx.com/products/devki...L505-UNI-G.htm

Price is 1195$, which is quite reasonable. Are there perhaps other good
products with a Virtex5 on it out there, perhaps some that have special
prices for universities?

Thanks P.

Philipp,

Are you a university or school? If so, you should contact the XUP
(Xilinx University Program). We often grant (gift), or partially fund
university boards (like the Virtex II Pro board from Digilent that we
will provide the FPGA on -- the school only pays for the pcb, not the FPGA).

Otherwise (not a university), our distributors also have an array of
Virtex 5 pcbs for sale, too.

(don't miss the HiTech Global, and TED/Inrevium links, at the bottom left).

Thanks for your answer Austin, yes I am at university. So I will check
with the Xilinx University program. Unfortunately it seems that the
board you are offering is too small for my purposes. I would need
a evaluation board with at least a Virtex4 on it and around 25000
to 30.000 slices.

If anyone knows a good resource where I could get such a board I would
be thankful for some feedback

Cheers,
Philipp

Have a look at Broaddown4 http://www.enterpoint.co.uk/moelbryn/broaddown4.html.
An alternative solution is the combination of our Broaddown2
(Spartan-3) with a add on Swinyard1 module. The Broaddown4 can support
between 1-4(with 2 Swinyard1 modules) Virtex-4 LX40-160 or SX55 parts.
Swinyard1 has a single Virtex-4 LX40-160 or SX55.

Some outline details on our university program (UAP) is here
http://www.enterpoint.co.uk/uap/uap.html. Discounts are listed there
on some products, others are available, as are details of our
Synplicity deal for universities where they effectively get a free
license with a small pack of our low cost board Raggedstone1 and soon
hopefully some others.
