Low Cost RocketIO Transceiver kit?

Jump to solution

I am a grad student looking to work with FPGAs when I graduate and would like to get some hands on practice with RocketIO transceivers. 

 

Is there a low cost development kit available that would allow me to experiment with RocketIO transceivers?  Even a board with just a simple loop-back option would suffice I think.

It looks like the Virtex-II kit is unavailable to new customers now. The PCIe board looks interesting. I assume if I loop-back on the PCIe or GigE interface I could get started with transceivers and not have to worry too much about external software (drivers, etc.)

One of the transceivers is routed to an SMA connector on the SP605 board. That might be your best option to do basic loop-back testing.
