The TB-FMCL-USB30 is an FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) that connects with a PC interface card capable of a data rate of up to 5 Gbps. It utilizes the Cypress EZ-USB FX3 device, for the SuperSpeed USB implementation. The TB-FMCL-USB30 enables an embedded USB 3.0 evaluation kit by simply connecting to the motherboard. The accompanying reference design allows access to the slave peripheral supporting AMBA®4 AXI4™ (Advanced eXtensible Interface 4) implemented in a Xilinx FPGA. It lets users easily incorporate a USB 3.0 interface into AXI4-based FPGA designs
The TB-FMCL-USB30 is targeted for a wide variety of embedded applications, requiring USB 3.0 interface. For the motherboards of this interface card, Kintex-7 ACDC1.0 base board and evaluation platform using the Virtex®-6 FPGA and Spartan®-6 FPGA are available from TED as an “inrevium” brand product.
