TE0741 Series with Xilinx Kintex®-7

The Trenz Electronic TE0741 is an industrial-grade FPGA module integrating a Xilinx Kintex®-7 FPGA, eight multi-gigabit transceivers, 32 MB Flash memory for configuration and operation, and powerful switch-mode power supplies for all onboard voltages. A large number of configurable I/Os are provided via rugged high-speed stacking strips.

All this on a tiny footprint smaller than a credit card, at a competitive price. Modules in 4 cm x 5 cm form factor are fully mechanically- and largely electrically-compatible among each other.

The TE0741 module is available in four different logic densities (70T, 160T, 325T, and 410T).

  • 256 Mbit (32 MB) quad-SPI Flash memory (for configuration and operation) accessible through:
    • FPGA
    • JTAG port (SPI indirect)
  • 8 MGTs (multi-gigabit transceivers)
  • FPGA configuration through:
    • JTAG (B2B connector)
    • SPI Flash memory
  • 25 MHz low-jitter oscillator with shutdown control
  • Programmable quad clock generator (Silicon Labs Si5338)
  • Plug-on module with two 100-pin and one 60-pin high-speed hermaphroditic stacking strips
  • Up to 144 (94 for 70T) single-ended FPGA I/O pins available on B2B strips
  • Onboard high-efficiency DC-DC converters
    • MGT voltage regulators with control enable
    • Core voltage regulator: 20 A (2 x Enpirion DC/DC regulators with load-sharing)
    • Supply voltages: either 3.3 V or 3.3 V and 5 V
  • Two user LEDs
  • One DONE FPGA pin LED
  • AES bitstream encryption
  • Evenly spread supply pins for good signal integrity
  • Avionics
  • LED-backlit flat panel displays
  • 3D TVs
  • LTE baseband solutions
