Got a heavy duty 8K or 4K video hardware project? Pressed for development time? Need to get to market before the competition? The inrevium/fidus team has a development platform for you. It’s called, quite simply, the 8K/4K Video Development Platform (formal part number TB-KU-060-ACDC8K) and it’s based on a Xilinx Kintex UltraScale KU060 All Programmable FPGA. There’s also 4Gbytes of DDR4 SDRAM on the board along with four SFP+ cages for optical modules and seven (!) FMC connectors of varying abilities.


Here’s a photo of the board shot last week at NAB 2015 in Las Vegas:

The 8K/4K Video Development platform has been proven to operate with key inrevium video IP including HDMI4K, 12G-SDI, DP1.2 (DisplayPort 1.2), V-by-one, and MIPI. Here’s another photo from NAB 2015 showing this board driving an UltraHD display:

Although targeted at video applications, you can of course use this Kintex UltraScale development platform for a much wider set of markets.
