The Opal Kelly XEM6002 is an integration module based on a Xilinx Spartan-6 FPGA (XC6SLX9-2FTG256C). In addition to a medium gate-count FPGA, the XEM6002 utilizes the high transfer rate of USB 2.0 for configuration downloads, enabling almost instant reprogramming of the FPGA. The XEM6002 features flexible clocking with a multi-output clock generator that can generate clock frequencies from 1 MHz to 150 MHz. If higher frequencies are needed, the clock multipliers in the FPGA can be used.

Typical volume pricing approaches provide reduced pricing based on order quantity or annual quantity. Our step pricing model leverages your organization’s accumulated volume to help reduce your pricing as your deployment grows.
With Opal Kelly’s step pricing model, you are able to achieve lower pricing “steps” as your total volume increases. We keep track of your current step and apply this information to determine an adjusted price per unit.
Step pricing is a partnership. You provide forecast information about your requirements and, in turn, we use this forecast information to keep your supply chain running smoothly and deliver the same great product at a lower price. Step pricing is only available directly from Opal Kelly.

FrontPanel Virtual Interface
Virtual interface elements such as buttons, LEDs, and hex displays make cumbersome "I/O Boards" a thing of the past.
32 Mb SPI Serial Flash (optional)
A 32-Mbit SPI Serial Flash device is available as an OEM option for FPGA configuration or general data storage. For more information please contact Opal Kelly Sales.
The on-board PLL provides flexible clocking to the FPGA and expansion connector.
Four (4) "Pods" each provide +3.3v, DGND, and eight general-purpose I/O. Each Pod is a Digilent Pmod™ Compatible connector.
The XEM6002 is a bus-powered device reducing cable count and simplifying the user experience.
