MNT RKX7 FPGA Module
Important: Shipping Date
(Updated 2022-10-05) The item is not in stock. We are collecting orders for the first batch until end of January 2023. If you pre-order now, you have to expect shipment in April 2023. Please get in touch for volume orders.
This is the open hardware system-on-module featuring the Xilinx/AMD Kintex-7 FPGA (XC7K160T or XC7K325T) and 2GB DDR3 RAM. It can be used as an alternative to the main processor module in the MNT Reform open hardware laptop or in any other custom device. The idea is to test synthesized open cores such as LiteX (RISC-V, multi-architecture) in a real laptop. True emulation of vintage computer architectures in a laptop form factor is possible as well.
An RGB to eDP adapter to connect this module to MNT Reform's internal display is available separately.
