FPGA Based Development Platform

General Description

ADP-XC7K160/410 is a multi-purpose development and prototyping board that provides rich capacity for evaluation of variety of AndesCore™ processors and AndeShape™ SoC platform IPs. It works with AndeSight™ software development suites and AICE in-circuit debugging tools. It also utilizes Xilinx Kintex 7 FPGA built-in hi-speed I/Os to support DDR3* and PCI-E interface for better system performance.

ADP-XC7K160/410 supports numerous peripheral interfaces and allows developers to add expansion cards for custom peripherals and devices. Developers can test and optimize the hardware and software components with a fast turnaround time between system designs, hence reducing development time, cost, and risk. Please note that Figure 1 shows the green PCB is ADP-XC7K160 and Figure 2 shows the red PCB is ADP-XC7K410.
