UltraScale+ FPGA PCIe Board with 4x QSFP-DDs

8x 100GbE Network Ports and VU9P/13P FPGA


The XUP-VV8 offers a large AMD FPGA in a 3/4-length PCIe board featuring QSFP-DD (double-density) cages for maximum port density. Using the Virtex UltraScale+ VU13P or VU9P FPGA, the board supports up to 8x 100GbE or 32x 10/25GbE.

The FPGA provides large logic and memory resources—up to 3.8M logic cells and 455Mb embedded memory. The board also provides a jitter cleaner to support synchronous ethernet. The board can be configured as single width for users who don’t need external memory on the DIMMs.

Key Features

Four QSFP-DD for up to 8x 100GbE

Up to 512 GBytes DDR4 SDRAM

Up to 3.8M Logic Cells

Now available:
