The Digilent Xilinx Genesys 2 Kintex-7 FPGA Development Board is an advanced, high-performance, ready-to-use digital circuit development platform based on the powerful Kintex-7 Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) from Xilinx.
With its high-capacity, high-speed FPGA, fast external memories, high-speed digital video ports, and wide expansions options, the Genesys 2 is well suited for data and video processing applications.
Several built-in peripherals, including Ethernet, audio, and USB 2.0 allow a wide range of additional applications. The fully-populated high-speed FMC HPC connector opens the door to great expansion possibilities.
The Kintex-7 FPGA offers more capacity, higher performance, and more resources than the Virtex-5 from the first-generation Genesys. The Genesys 2 can be programmed from various sources, like a USB thumb drive, microSD, the on-board non-volatile Flash, or the on-board USB-JTAG programmer circuit.
The Genesys 2 is compatible with Xilinx’s new high-performance Vivado Design Suite as well as the ISE toolset, which includes ChipScope and EDK.
Vivado comes with all the required cable drivers, so no separate installation is required. The free "WebPACK" versions of these toolsets do not support the Kintex-7 325T, however, for a limited time, a voucher with Design Edition will be included with no additional cost.
