The XEM8310-AU25P is an FPGA development board based on the Xilinx Artix UltraScale+ FPGA. In addition to support for the Opal Kelly FrontPanel SDK and SuperSpeed USB 3.0, the module includes high-efficiency power supplies for single-input power, 2 GiB DDR4, clock oscillators, and three mezzanine expansion connectors for access to fabric and transceiver I/O.

Designed for prototypes, proof-of-concept, and production, the XEM8310 is a great way to integrate the latest low-power Xilinx FPGA. Reduce time to market, focus on your team’s core competency, and simplify your supply chain. Higher volume production is supported by our Step Pricing program.

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.
