The XEM8320 is the official development platform for the Xilinx Artix UltraScale+ FPGA. The XEM8320 is supported by Opal Kelly’s FrontPanel SDK, enabling a new level of rapid prototype development and a path to production deployment with the associated XEM8310 module. Six SYZYGY ports provide expansion capabilities with external peripherals for data acquisition, signal generation, digital communication, sensing, networking, and more.

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.

FlashPrototype > Proof-of-Concept > Production

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




Four SYZYGY Standard ports and Two SYZYGY transceiver ports supported by three SmartVIO groups


512 MiB DDR4

Integrated 512-MiByte DDR4 provides loads of high-speed on-board memory for high-performance applications, including video capture and data acquisition
