Jade Xilinx UltraScale FPGA Family Overview

The Jade Family

The JadeTM architecture embodies a new streamlined approach to FPGA based boards, simplifying the design to reduce power and cost, while still providing some of the highest performance FPGA resources available today.

Designed to work with Pentek's new NavigatorTM Design Suite of tools, the combination of Jade and Navigator offers users an efficient path to developing and deploying FPGA based data acquisition and processing.

Xilinx UltraScale Jade FPGA Family Navigator Design Suite of tools

"Our new Jade architecture gives our customers unprecedented levels of performance at significantly lower product cost. We also developed new software development tools to align with the latest industry standards and Xilinx development tools, providing a more intuitive and productive development environment."

- Rodger Hosking, Vice President of Pentek


The Jade Architecture

Evolved from the proven designs of the Pentek Onyx® and Cobalt® families, Jade raises the processing performance with the new flagship family of Kintex UltraScale FPGAs from Xilinx. As the central feature of the board architecture, the FPGA has access to all data and control paths, enabling factory-installed functions including data multiplexing, channel selection, data packing, gating, triggering and memory control. The Jade Architecture organizes the FPGA as a container for data processing applications where each function exists as an intellectual property (IP) module.

Each member of the Jade family is delivered with factory-installed applications ideally matched to the board's analog interfaces.

Extendable IP Design

For applications that require specialized functions, users can install their own custom IP for data processing. Pentek Navigator FPGA Design Kits include all of the factory installed modules as documented source code. Developers can integrate their own IP with the Pentek factory-installed functions or use the Navigator kit to completely replace the Pentek IP with their own.

Xilinx Kintex UltraScale FPGA

The Kintex UltraScale FPGA site can be populated with a range of FPGAs to match the specific requirements of the processing task. The Jade family is ideal for modulation/demodulation, encoding/decoding, encryption/decryption, and channelization of the signals between transmission and reception.

Development Tools and Software Support

Navigator Design SuiteNavigatorTM Design Suite takes a new approach to solving FPGA IP and control software connectivity. Most modern FPGA-processing applications require development of specialized FPGA IP to run on the hardware, and software to control the FPGA hardware from a host computer. Even when “turnkey” solutions are delivered with complete FPGA IP and software libraries, as developers add their own custom-processing IP, new software needs to be created to control the custom IP functions.

Navigator FPGA Design KitNavigatorTM FPGA Design Kit (FDK) provides the complete IP for a specific Jade data acquisition and processing board. When the design is opened in Vivado’s IP Integrator, the developer can access every component of the Pentek design, replacing or modifying blocks as needed for the application. All blocks use industry standard AXI4 interfaces providing a well-defined format for custom IP to connect to the rest of the design. Each Navigator/Jade design includes User Blocks in the data-flow path, ideal for inserting custom processing IP.

Navigator Board Support Package NavigatorTM Board Support Package (BSP) allows software developers to work at a higher level, abstracting many of the details of the hardware through an intuitive API. The API allows developers to focus on the task of creating the application by letting the API, the hardware and IP-control libraries below it to handle many of the board-specific functions. Developers who want full access to the entire BSP library, enjoy complete C-language source code as well as full documentation.

Certified Partner in the Xilinx Alliance ProgramAs a Certified Member of Xilinx's Alliance program, Pentek has passed a comprehensive 320-point review of our technical, business, quality, and support processes and have committed engineers who completed the same rigorous training used by Xilinx Field Application Engineers worldwide. Pentek continues to demonstrate years of expertise with Xilinx devices and implementation techniques and consistently delivers high-quality products and services utilizing Xilinx programmable platforms.

SPARK Development Systems

The SPARK® Development Systems are fully-integrated platforms for Pentek JadeTM, Flexor®, Onyx® and Cobalt® boards. The SPARK systems were created to save engineers and system integrators the time and expense associated with building and testing a development system. Each SPARK system is delivered with the Pentek board(s) and required software installed and equipped with sufficient cooling and power to ensure optimum performance.

Overview
Xilinx Kintex UltraScale Jade FPGA Family

The Jade series is more an evolution of our Cobalt® and Onyx® product families than a completely new product. All of the best features and proven analog interfaces have been designed into Jade and we streamlined the architecture to lower cost and power.


Navigator Design Suite Because the typical processing application requires both custom FPGA IP design and the creation of host software for control, NavigatorTM Design Suite was designed from the ground up with the goal of synchronizing the two tasks. This streamlines the process of embedded application development.
