«The USBS6 FPGA board is based on the Xilinx Spartan-6LX® FPGA. This logic-optimized FPGA family is ideal for applications requiring high logic densities. In combination with the powerful Cypress FX2LP™ USB 2.0 controller, 1Gb of LPDDR SDRAM and a serial UART, this board is well suited for system-on-a-chip implementations.»
Real-world measured data rate of 40 MB/s can be achieved with UDK API and high speed USB 2.0 connections.
You can configure the FPGA using the Xilinx Platform Cable (JTAG), using your own UDK-based software, using the UDK3 board manager or from the on-board flash memory. All this options are always available - there is no need to choose with switches or jumpers.
Included in the UDK, there are tools to perform FPGA configuration, clear, write and read the on-board configuration flash, read and write the user-ID of the board and control the reset-pin.
The Cesys UDK is an API for FPGA configuration and interfacing the FPGA to the software running on your PC. The UDK handles everything between a API call from your software and a bus transaction inside the FPGA. Read and write calls are serialized through the USB 2.0 bus, making the FPGA bus address space directly accessible by your software. Using the UDK results in an enormous saving in time and development resources. It is available at no additional cost when used with the USBS6 board. To use it with 3rd party hardware, we offer a pay-once licensing model for the UDK source-code.
Use our extensively tested reference designs as a starting point for your projects. We use our own reference designs for many customer projects and can therefore offer you the very best support.
We have great interest in ensuring that your project is successful. That is why we will give great effort to assist you. We will answer questions that you ask in our support-forum as soon as possible because sometimes, it's the little things that stop you. In addition to our free forum-support, we offer fee-based support and development service customized to your needs.
The USBS6 was built for prototyping systems and integration into OEM devices. Everywhere, a Spartan-6LX solution with USB 2.0 interface is required, the USBS6 is a perfect match.
