The XEM7320 is a USB 3.0 FPGA development platform based on the highly capable Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA. In addition to a high gate-count FPGA, the XEM7320 utilizes the high transfer rate of USB 3.0 enabling speedy FPGA configuration and data transfer. With integrated SDRAM, high-efficiency power supplies, and three SYZYGY Compatible peripheral connectors, the XEM7320 is an excellent choice for system prototyping and integration.

FrontPanel® SDK

Opal Kelly’s FrontPanel SDK is an easy-to-use, robust API for communication, configuration, and interfacing to your PC, Mac or Linux hardware. FrontPanel handles all the interaction between your software and the FPGA internals, dramatically reducing the time and effort required to interface to a design.

FlashPrototyping and OEM Integration

As a development platform, the XEM7320 is perfect for prototypes and proof-of-concept designs. For product integration and deployment, consider the companion XEM7310.
