HTG-530: Xilinx Virtex™ -5 LX330T,
FX200T, SX240T PCI Express PPC 440, DSP Platform
Powered by the largest Xilinx Virtex-5 LXT/FXT/SXT FPGA devices, the
HTG-530 is an ideal platform for almost any high-speed,
high-performance FPGA based design. Availability of more than 330,000
logic cells makes this board ideal for ASIC/SOC prototyping and
All 24 RocketIO serial transceivers (GTP/GTX) have been
used to provide access to 8 lanes of end-point PCI Express (Gen 1 with
LXT/SXT and Gen2 with FXT devices), 2 Gigabit
Ethernet ports (SGMII), 2 Serial ATA ports, 8 pairs of SMA, and 10 data-rate-adjustable
RocketIO GTP/GTX ports through high speed Samtec connectors
(accessible either by cable or add-on modules).
The reference clock of 10 RocketIO GTPs (available on two
high-speed connectors located on the upper left corner of the board) can
be controlled by series of frequency synthesizer ICs, oscillators, and
DIP switches (HTG Super Clock). This provides data throughputs ranging
from 622 mbps to 6.25 Gbps supporting variety of different serial
interface standards and protocols. Each connector also has its own
differential GTP/GTX clock. Different add-on modules including PCIe Root,
SATA and 10-port SFP are available to expand the board's capability and
2 Serial ATA (SATA) ports support SATA (I) and (II)
standard. The data rate is controlled by the HTG Super Clock circuit.
Device , and
Port Multiplier IP cores
are available through HiTech Global.
8 SMA connectors provide access to two RocketIO GTP ports.
These ports can be used for GTP characterization, board to board
connection, or connection to test and measurement equipments. Two
additional SMA connectors can be used for connection to an external
Two RJ45 connectors provide Gigabit Ethernet interface for
high-speed networking application. Each connector has interface to one
RocketIO GTP port for supporting SGMII applications.
The 200-pin (64-bit) SO-DIMM (located on the flip side of
the board) provides access to up to 2 GB of DDR-2 memory. A
high-performance and easy to integrate DDR-2 Memory Controller IP
Core is also available through HiTech Global.
The power distribution is made either through PCI Express
mother board "or" a 5V ATX power supply. This provides flexible and
reliable power distribution for any FPGA gate and resource utilization
(especially when all RocketIO GTP/GTX ports are used in a design).
68 pairs of LVDS (2.5V) signals or 136
Single-ended (3.3V) IOs are available through two Samtec QSE connectors.
(The IO banks' voltages are set via set of jumpers). Two pairs of differential clocks, 2.5V, and 3.3V supply voltages are
also available on each connector.
A PCI Express Jitter Attenuator IC provides higher low
jitter PCIe clock interface. The circuit can be bypassed by two on-board
A 256 mb Intel flash component provides ample storage area for
the on-board LX330T / FX200T/ SX240T FPGA configuration bits. This allows immediate
configuration of the onboard FPGA when power is applied to the board.
Remote configuration of the FPGA is possible when a PCIe motherboard
(host) is equipped with configuration signals as part of its CPU Jtag
