Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) has introduced the U5340A FPGA development kit, powered by a custom Mentor Graphics design engine, for high-speed digitizers. The U5340A enables customers to deploy advanced real-time signal processing into the FPGAs on board Agilent high-speed digitizers. The development kit leverages the full density and speed of the FPGA while ensuring the digitizer’s outstanding multi-gigasample-per-second performance. This software tool can help companies and research institutions protect their intellectual property and shorten time-to-market as they develop technologies for high-end applications such as medical imaging, environmental monitoring, time-of-flight spectroscopy and radar. Features include:

  • Custom embedded Mentor Graphics design engine—including HDL Author, ModelSim PE and Precision Synthesis.
  • Place-and-route and a bitfile-generation engines.
  • Dual-port RAM memories.
  • Set of IP cores.
  • Ready-to-use scripts.
