Virtex-2 FPGA Module DB-V2

The FPGA module DB-V2 integrates FPGAs of the second Xilinx Virtex generation. Since the largest available Xilinx Virtex-2 FPGAs (XC2V8000) can be used, this extension module is especially suitable for large hardware designs. Like with all other RAPTOR modules different assembly options are available, so that the user can choose between various FPGAs of the Xilinx XC2V family. Depending on the requirements of the target application, both size and speedgrade of the FPGA are selected. Apart from SDRAM, static memory is integrated to extend the embedded memory of the FPGAs, enabling fast and easy data storage.
