Avnet Cilicon and Xilinx Inc. have announced a multi-gigabit serial I/O design kit that includes hardware, tools and reference designs based on the Xilinx Aurora open protocol to enable designers to adopt the high-speed serial I/O technology of the Virtex-II Pro family.

The kit features a hardware evaluation board with a Virtex-II Pro (2VP7) device and features 64MB of DDR SDRAM, eight 3.125Gbps Xilinx multi-gigabit serial transceivers, 30 LVDS pairs, four 7-segment displays, one RS-232 port, and two 140-pin AvBus expansion connectors. The board connects with other Avnet Avenue processor, audio, video, networking and memory boards. The kit includes a variety of Aurora reference designs, schematics and layout files, documentation, and application notes to help designers accelerate overall design time.

The design kit is available through local Avnet Cilicon sales offices or over the web. It can be ordered as Avnet Design Services part number ADS-XLX-P2A-DK for $499. As part of the design kit rollout, Avnet will offer a hands-on workshop to provide customers with an introduction to high-speed serial designs.
