I got the new shining KC705 devkit today, which I ordered in early March.
I had mixed feelings, excited and a little bit disappointed.
Excited because I could pursue my interesting projects with the new gear.
Disappointed due to the facts that:
- BIST doesn’t work out of the box,by following exactly as what Kintex-7 FPGA KC705 Evaluation Kit Getting Started Guide (UG883 v1.1) says.
- the kit goes back to init state (init LED turns red) after a while in BIST setting.
- AMS doesn’t come with the box, and according to AR #46640, it will be shipped separately later.
I will focus on KC705 after getting other projects out of my hands, probably in several weeks.
The KC705 is the larger board in the bottom. I put the smaller SP605 in the middle to compare.
