Opal Kelly Releases Industrial Versions of XEM6010-Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA USB Modules

Portland, Oregon – September 27, 2011 – Opal Kelly, a leading producer of powerful FPGA modules that provide essential device-to-computer interconnect using PCI Express or USB 2.0, today announced two industrial-temperature versions of its recently-released XEM6010 module. Based on the powerful Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA, with high-speed USB 2.0 interface for downloading and communication, the new XEM6010-LX45I and XEM6010-LX150I are specified for the full industrial temperature range of -40ºC to +85ºC.

The XEM6010 is ideally suited to prototyping systems and integration into OEM devices where a USB interface, flexible hardware solution, or PC (Windows, Mac, or Linux) software interface would be useful. The XEM6010 can easily be added to a new board design to provide turnkey USB integration with the convenience of the Opal Kelly FrontPanel SDK and USB drivers. Available in two FPGA densities and now available in commercial and industrial temperature ranges, the XEM6010-LX45 and XEM6010-LX45I are specified for the commercial (-0ºC to +70ºC) and industrial (-40ºC to +85ºC) temperature ranges, respectively. The XEM6010-LX150 and XEM6010-LX150I are the higher-density versions. All models include high-speed USB 2.0 FPGA configuration and data transfer, integrated DDR2 SDRAM, power supplies, and configuration flash.

The XEM6010-LX45I is offered at $424.95 / each (quantity 100+). The XEM6010-LX150I is offered at $749.95 / each (quantity 50+). Both are available now from the Opal Kelly online store.
