You can use this development kit to do the following:

  • Develop and test PCI Express* (PCIe) designs at data rates up to Gen3 using the PCIe short card form factor-compliant development board.
  • Develop and test memory subsystems for DDR3 or QDR II memories.
  • Use the high-speed mezzanine card (HSMC) connectors to interface to one of over 35 different HSMCs provided by approved companies, supporting protocols such as Serial RapidIO®, 10 Gbps Ethernet, SONET, CPRI, OBSAI, and others.

Buyer represents that it is a product developer, software developer or system integrator and acknowledges that this product is an evaluation kit that is not FCC authorized, is made available solely for evaluation and software development, and may not be resold.

You can purchase optional HSMC connector interface-compatible daughter cards, adapters, or cables to use with your development kit.
