Product Summary


The proFPGA UltraScale™ XCVU160 FPGA Module is the logic core and interface hub for the scalable, and modular multi FPGA Prototyping solution, which fulfills highest needs in the area of high speed interface verification and test. It addresses customers who need a high performance ASIC Prototyping solution for early software development and real time system verification. The innovative system concept and technologies offer highest flexibility and reuseability for several projects, which guarantees the best return on invest.

The proFPGA UltraScale™ XCVU160 FPGA Module, which only works in combination with a proFPGA uno, duo or quad motherboard offers with its latest Virtex® UltraScale™ XCVU160 FPGA technology maximum capacity of up to 11 M ASIC gates in a single FPGA. The module offers with its 6 extension sites up to 585 user I/Os for daughter boards (e.g. memory boards, interface boards), interconnecting cables or customer specific application boards.

The highlight of this module is, that it offers beside the standard I/O 64 high speed serial transceivers (24 x GTY, 40 x GTH) running up to 16.375 Gbps (depending on speedgrade of FPGA) for high speed interfaces like PCIe Gen4, Gen3, USB 3.0 or DDR4 memories. The extension sites offer individually and stepless adjustable voltage regions from 1.2V up to 1.8V.
