ECP5 Versa Development Kit

ECP5 connectivity platform - Enables designers to evaluate key connectivity features of the ECP5 FPGA, including PCI Express, Gigabit Ethernet, DDR3 and generic SERDES performance.

Rapid prototyping of user functions - The features of the ECP5 Versa board can assist engineers with rapid prototyping and testing of their ECP5 designs.

Proof-of-concept demos - Several demos are available for download with the board to speed up development of PCI Express, Gigabit Ethernet, DDR3, soft error correction (SEC) and generic SERDES performance.

Features

  • Half-length PCI Express form-factor : Allows demonstration of PCI Express x1 interconnection
  • Electrical testing of one full-duplex SERDES channel via SMA connections
  • USB-B connection for UART and device programming
  • Two RJ45 interfaces to 10/100/1000 Ethernet to RGMII
  • On-board Boot Flash : 128M Serial SPI Flash
  • DDR3-1866 memory components (64Mb/x16)1
  • Expansion mezzanine interconnection for prototyping
  • 14-segment alpha-numeric display
  • Switches, LEDs and displays for demo purposes
  • Diamond® programming support
  • On-board reference clock sources

1. ECP5 FPGAs support DDR3 memory at data-rates up to 800 Mbps

Diamond Free License - for the ECP5 Versa Development Kit Only
