The XEM7310 is a USB 3.0 FPGA development board based on the highly capable Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA. In addition to a high gate-count FPGA, the XEM7310 utilizes the high transfer rate of USB 3.0 enabling speedy FPGA configuration and data transfer. With integrated SDRAM, power supplies, and platform flash, the XEM7310 is the latest addition to Opal Kelly’s most popular form-factor.

Need access to the Artix-7 gigabit transceiver (GTP)? Consider the XEM7310MT!

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

Opal Kelly FPGA integration modules are designed to be the ideal turnkey solution for prototypes and OEM product integration. With the complete FrontPanel SDK, there’s simply no faster, more reliable, production-ready way to jump start your FPGA design.
