This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

XILINX FPGA KCU116 Evaluation Kit

The Xilinx Kintex® UltraScale+™ FPGA KCU116 Evaluation Kit targets the UltraScale+ XCKU5P FPGA and is ideal for evaluating its 28Gbps transceiver performance.  The Kintex UltraScale+ family balances price, performance, and power consumption and is a very cost-effective solution for high-end FPGA applications.  The XCKU5P device has 475k logic cells and 1824 DSP slices as well as 16 GTY 32.75Gbps transceivers connected to the HPC FMC connector, the PCIe interface, and the zSFP+ connectors on the evaluation board.  Further expansion is possible using the two PMOD connectors.  The evaluation board also provides 1GB of DDR4, 64MB of Quad SPI Flash, a micro SD slot, an HDMI Codec and port, and a gigabit ethernet interface.  The kit includes a node- and device-locked license for the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite to accelerate development.
