Tokyo, Japan; San Jose CA (PRWEB) January 11, 2005

The Kit contains a complete platform to assist with developing, prototyping, and evaluation of Elpida, Micron, or Samsung DDR-II memory products with Xilinx Virtex-4 FPGAs. The Virtex-4 DDR-II board, populated with two 64MB mounted and two 512 MB DIMM memory components, supports memory data throughput up to 533 Mbps. The General IO header can be used to provide communication between the Virtex-4 FPGA and various option boards such as DVI Tx/Rx, HDMI Tx/Rx, Camera Link I/F, and Optical I/F.


“Hitech Global marketing and engineering teams are very excited about the availability of such a high-performance and versatile Virtex-4 platform” – Said Cyrus Merati Director of Hitech Global Marketing and Application Engineering.


“We are very excited to release the high-speed board mounted Virtex4 to World Wide customers at an early stage in this way. It would not be possible to develop such a board without cooperation of Elpida Memory including the board simulation and the reference design. We will strongly promote continued collaboration with Elpida Memory and HiTech Global Distribution.” –Satoshi Akasaka Manager of TED Technical Marketing.
