Agilex 5G-Wireless Platform

Overview

The Agilex 5G/Wireless development platform provides a quick evaluation and prototyping platform for 5G/Wireless solutions based on the Intel’s latest high performance 10nm Agilex F-Series FPGA.  The development platform consists of two modules, an Agilex FPGA based main SOM (System On Module) board and a carrier board which implements breakout of the FPGA I/Os through high speed SOM connectors.  The carrier module provides an FMC VITA57.1 connector for interfacing to a limited set of Analog Devices high speed ADC/DAC/MxFE FMC modules.  In addition, the FMC carrier module also provides multiple networking interfaces to breakout the E-Tile high speed transceivers of the Agilex FPGA.

Features

  • Intel 10nm Agilex AG014 FPGA with P-Tile and E-Tile transceivers
  • 8 transceiver lanes with up to 28.9Gbps NRZ to FMC transceiver lanes for JESD support
  • 4 E-Tile XCVRs to QSFP56 connector for implementing up to 100Gbps network interface
  • 4 E-Tile XCVRs to quad SFP56 connector for implementing 4x 25Gbps/10Gbps network interfaces
  • P-Tile based x8 Gen4 PCIe interface through SFF8644 connector/cable assembly
  • LVDS interfaces on FMC for JESD204B/C SYSREF/SYNC interface support
  •  Two UDIMM/RDIMM interfaces for deep captures and playback support
  • Complete Linux FPGA support package available
  • Integrated and verified with Analog Devices AD9081/AD9082 MxFE ADC/DAC FMC modules
  • Optional Board Support Package with ADI APIs and Agilex JESD204B/C IP Core available. Includes DAC pattern generator/playback and ADC capture logic for analysis and prototyping
