Product Summary


The proFPGA product family is a complete, scalable, and modular multi FPGA Prototyping solution, which fulfills highest needs in the area of FPGA based Prototyping. Part of this modular and flexible system concept is the proFPGA Zynq™ UltraScale+™ ZU17EG FPGA module, which can be easily mounted on the proFPGA uno, duo or quad motherboard and mixed together with various other proFPGA FPGA modules. The ZU17EG FPGA module addresses customers who require a complete and powerful embedded processing platform for high performance SoC Prototyping, IP verification and early software development.

Equipped with a Xilinx Zynq™ UltraScale+™ ZU17EG FPGA which combines a uand on board interfaces like USB UART and SDIO, the board offers a complete embedded processing platform. Further interfaces like USB 3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, Display Port, SATA or CAN can be easily added via the Zynq UltraScale+ Interface Board. In addition the board offers already DDR4 memory via SODIMM slot and single QSPI flash memory.

The FPGA module offers a total of 4 extension sites on the top and bottom side with a total of 531 free standard I/Os and 16 high speed serial transceivers for extending the board with standard proFPGA or user specific extension boards or to easily interconnect it to further proFPGA FPGA modules to extend the capacity.
