     The Xilinx Kintex-7 are available as the following models 70T, 160T, 325T, 355T, 410T, 420T or 480T. Compared to previous Xilinx FPGA, family offers high-end performance at just half the cost. Kintex-7 FPGA are used for applications in the medical, broadcast, and communication markets. Some applications include long distance WAN transport using standard IP networks and communication through air interfaces, including LTE, WiMAX and WCDMA.

     Kintex family chips are used to link broad scale communication applications, including radio, live events, and satellite. They have also been a primary component in 3DTVs, LED flat panel products, and portable ultrasound devices.

    Last year, Micro/Sys unveiled a single board computer (SBC) that uses a Kintex 7 and a Freescale i.MX6 Quad SoC. The SBC is ruggedized and can be applied to a number of end-uses, including high-end security, transportation, military, industrial products, communication, vision, and medical systems.

     More recently, Napatech unveiled its latest network accelerating device, the NT100E3-1-PTP. The Kintex-7 is the processor used to build the NT100E3-1-PTP. The NT100E3-1-PTP is an ethernet accelerating device and allows for speeds up to 100 Gbps. The NT100E3-1-PTP is used for network management and more controlled security applications.

    CommAgility announced the release of their newest signal processing module. The VPX-D16A4-PCIE can be used for electronic warfare, software radio, imaging or radar, and was designed to be used in rugged environments. 

     A couple of days ago, Acromag announced a new FPGA module powered by Xilinx's Kintex-7. Applications include hardware simulation, communications, military applications, and signal and image processing.
