Xilinx and AFDX

Hello people;


I am interested in developing a new project that uses AFDX based on xilinx series 7. The problem is, that as far as I understand, the only evaluation kit that allows me the use of two Ethernet ports is ML510, with a Virtex-5, so I suppose I will have to develop a new board with my own design.


Between Artix, Kintex or Virtex, which of these three Series 7 FPGA is the most suitable to support a AFDX design?


Thank you for your help


Kind regards

Re: Xilinx and AFDX

Why not put a SOC processor on the board, with off-the-shelf operating system support?  There are many choices for inexpensive SOC processors with multiple high-speed ethernet ports.


WARNING:  getting a datasheet from an ethernet PHY supplier can be more difficult than getting a politician to tell the truth in an election year, depending on the supplier.


If you are in a hurry, select parts which are already in production.

1. Read the manual or user guide. Have you read the manual? Can you find the manual?
2. Search the forums (and search the web) for similar topics.
3. Do not post the same question on multiple forums.
4. Do not post a new topic or question on someone else's thread, start a new thread!
5. Students: Copying code is not the same as learning to design.
6 "It does not work" is not a question which can be answered. Provide useful details (with webpage, datasheet links, please).
7. You are not charged extra fees for comments in your code.
8. I am not paid for forum posts. If I write a good post, then I have been good for nothing.

Re: Xilinx and AFDX

Hello Pedromonje,


We are also interested to implement AFDX on FPGA. I have found your post from 2012 and I would like to know your position. Have you implemented AFDX on FPGA ? Please could you give me a status ?


Thanks in advance

Best regards
