Product Description

OpenFDK (Open FPGA Developer’s Kit) eases application development by supplying optimized infrastructure IP to abstract the lower-level hardware details and system utilities for FPGA integration and control. OpenFDK elements provide a consistent set of IP and design resources across platforms (ATCA®, 6U VPX/VXS, 3U VPX) for optimal code portability. The OpenFDK IP modules deliver a pre-validated environment and infrastructure for an application-ready platform.
