PC720 Kintex-7™ PCIe Card

PCIe Gen2/Gen3 with FMC Expansion Sites

PC720

The PC820 and PC821 are recommended for new designs.

  • Description

      The PC720 is a high-performance, half-size PCI Express card with advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP) capabilities and multiple I/O options. The PC720 offers various direct on-board interface options (2x FMC sites) that are closely coupled to the Kintex-7 and 1GB of DDR3 SDRAM. With on board fans, available to dissipate heat from the FMC site and the Kintex-7, this product remains cool in any enclosure. It is an excellent choice for high performance applications that require large band signals digitization or generation through the use of accelerated frequency-domain algorithms or video applications that are bandwidth hungry.

  • FMC Options
      FPGA Mezzanine Card Options

      The PC720 offers two FMC sites connected to the Kintex-7 FPGA. The first FMC site (HPC) is located on the primary side of the board and when populated it remains within the envelope of a single slot half size PCIe card. Optionally a second FMC site (LPC) is made available on the back side of the PC720 and the FMC I/Os occupy the front panel of the PCIe adjacent slot. The secondary FMC site can also accommodate an FMC404 with four SFP for fast optical communication. When mounting a high-performance FMC on the primary side and the FMC404 on the secondary side a complete data acquisition, signal processing, and optical platform is made available to designers for the most demanding applications.

      For more information about the 4DSP FMCs that can be used on the PC720, please visit the FMC portal. We offer a wide range of ADC, DAC and DSP modules.
