Someone asked by email :
The list of carriers supported by the AD Board at http://wiki.analog.com/resources/eval/user-guides/ad-fmcomms2-ebz/quickstart
list the Xilinx Virtex7/Kintex7 dev boards, but not the Artix7. On the other hand, the AC701 does include a FMC Site, I verified all the necessary connections are routed to the FPGA, and the IO Voltage is proper. I was wanting to check if not listing the AC701 was due to it not yet being looked at, or if there was some other issue that precludes it’s use with the AD-FMCOMMS3-EBZ.
I understand that there may be some work required on the HDL reference design to get it to work – I am more concerned at this point on whether there is any electrical issues.
