DIGILENT USB104 A7 Artix®-7 FPGA PC/104 Development Board

Digilent’s USB104 A7 Artix-7 FPGA PC/104 Development Board is a powerful and versatile development board for PC/104 stackable systems. 

The board is based on a Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA that offers the highest-performance-per watt fabric and is ideal for size, weight, and power constrained projects. The development board has a SYZYGY-compatible Zmod port, a compact and high bandwidth interface that can be used to add high-performance analog and other SYZYGY pods. The board also offers 3 PMOD compatible ports for further hardware expansion options. 

The USB104 A7 has a USB port that can be used for data transfer, programming, or as a UART bridge. The board can also be powered via USB or a 5V external power source.
