Xilinx Inc. has launched a GbE development kit based on the company's latest 65nm Virtex-5 FPGAs. Designed to improve time-to-market of applications with Ethernet in communications, networking, industrial, scientific, medical, storage, computing and aerospace and defense markets, the kit provides a complete solution including a development board and protocol packs, said Xilinx.

The Virtex-5 FPGA GbE development kit enables designers to take advantage of pre-verified connectivity solutions and complete their design with confidence. The Virtex-5 LXT and SXT platform FPGAs include four built-in Tri-mode (10/100/1000Mbps) Ethernet MACs and provide a fully integrated solution that has passed the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab (UNH-IOL) tests. Including integrated low-power RocketIO GTP transceiver, the Virtex-5 LXT and SXT families can support MAC+PHY in the FPGA with the Ethernet SGMII interface and a myriad of other interfaces. Xilinx also provides a path to 10Gbps Ethernet using XAUI interface.

"The flexibility and programmability of FPGAs, with integrated tri-mode Ethernet hard blocks and transceivers provide scalable Ethernet connectivity on the chip," said Anil Telikepalli, senior manager of platform solutions marketing, Xilinx. "The complete Xilinx GbE solution and development kit will enable thousands of designers to adopt GbE easily and allow them to focus on their value-add design."

The Xilinx Virtex-5 LXT FPGA Gigabit Ethernet Development Kit is immediately available for $1,395.
