Old, not obsolete. Working with the Xilinx Virtex-E FPGA in a huge BGA package

Old, not obsolete. Working with the Xilinx Virtex-E FPGA in a huge BGA package

Andy Brown not only did a nice write up about his experience with the Xilinx XCV600e FPGA and creating a development board for it, but he also did a great video walkthrough:

The general aim of this project will be to create a generic development board for the FPGA. This isn’t as simple as it is for a microcontroller because an FPGA can become pretty much anything you want it to be and the resulting support circuitry is always tailored to the desired use case. In my case I’ll narrow the field down a little by focussing on I/O and interfaces to external memory devices.
I’ll aim to break out as many of the single-ended and differential I/Os as possible and hope to provide connectivity to some SRAM, SDRAM and flash memory. With that in mind, I need to take a look at this package to see what I’m up against.

Full details at Andy Brown’s blog.

Check out the video after the break.
