Certus-NX Versa Evaluation Board

Connectivity Platform with 5G PCIe, SGMII, DDR3 Memory and 40K Logic Cells

Connectivity platform with 5G PCIe and SGMII – Enables designers to evaluate connectivity features of the Certus-NX FPGA, including PCI Express (5 Gbps), SGMII (1.25 Gbps), DDR3 memory interface (1066 Mbps x 16 data width) and camera sensor interface (using D-PHY soft IP).

Efficient processing and expandable usability – Features Certus-NX low-power general purpose FPGA with 40K logic cells in a 256-BGA package. Board functions can be expanded via three Digilent Peripheral Module (Pmod™) headers available on the board.

Rapid prototyping and proof-of-concept demos – Assists engineers with rapid prototyping and testing of their Certus-NX designs. Several demos and reference designs targeting this board are available for download from the Lattice Solutions page, to speed-up development of PCI Express, SGMII, DDR3, soft error correction (SEC) and soft D-PHY camera interface functions.
