Kintex UltraScale FPGA KCU1500 Acceleration Development Kit - How does this kit differ from the TUL KU115 kit?

描述

How does the Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA KCU1500 Acceleration Development Kit differ from the TUL KU115 kit?

解决方案

The differences between the KCU1500 and TUL KU115 kit are as follows:


  1. Bitstreams for the TUL KU115 are NOT compatible with the Xilinx KCU1500.

  2. KCU1500 DDR4 memory interfaces were changed to a true clamshell implementation, making its bitstream incompatible with the TUL version.
    The Xilinx KCU1500 has more margin in the DDR4 memory interfaces and power systems than the TUL KU115, resulting in lower probability of failure.

  3. Mechanical form factor is identical, with the exception of air exhaust through the PCIe bracket on the KCU1500 for better thermal performance.

  4. KCU1500 power sub systems were improved to correctly sense at the FPGA, in order to eliminate IR drop at high current.
