Apr 24, 2022 — by Giorgio Mendoza 1,104 views

Opal Kelly launched the XEM8310-AU25P which is an FPGA development board that features the Xilinx Artix Ultrascale+ FPGA. This board is supported by the popular FrontPanel SDK to improve rapid prototyping and product development.

The XEM8310-AU25P platform integrates the Xilinx Artix Ultrascale+ XCAU25P-2FFVB676E FPGA which features 2GiB DDR4 memory, 1200 DSP slices, 141,000 CLB LUTs, 282,000 CLB Flip Flops and around 308,437 System Logic Cells.

Other peripherals include a USB Type C Super Speed connector, 32MiB QSPI, 16 MiB System Flash and two low-jitter fixed-frequency clock oscillators. There are also 12 GTY Transceivers (up to 16.375 Gb/s) which support serial interfaces as DisplayPort, 10GbE, SATA, HD-SDI, PCI Express, XAUI and JESD-204B.

The board also offers up to 149 FPGA fabric I/Os and up to four LEDs for general use. The USB host interface implements a Cypress FX3 microcontroller, although its firmware and HDL modules are proprietary.
