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.
