Xilinx Virtex UltraScale FPGA VCU1287 Characterization Kit

Product Description

The VCU1287 Characterization Kit provides everything you need to  characterize and evaluate the 32 GTH (16Gbps) and 32 GTY (30Gbps) transceivers available on the Virtex® UltraScale™ XCVU095-FFVB2104E FPGA. Each GTH and GTY Quad and its associated reference clock are routed from the FPGA to SMA and Samtec BullsEye connectors. The BullsEye connector allows you to connect to a broad range of evaluation platforms, from backplanes and optical evaluation boards to high speed test equipment.  Each BullsEye connector handles a full GTH or GTY Quad, four transmit/receive pairs, enabling the highest level of flexibility in testing custom applications. Find out more and see what is included in the kit.
