Xilinx has introduced the Virtex® UltraScale+™ 56G PAM4 VCU129 FPGA evaluation kit to enable the design of a next-generation networking platform, bringing unparalleled adaptability and performance.

Virtex UltraScale+ 58G PAM4 FPGAs are built upon the same building blocks used by the Xilinx 16nm UltraScale+ FPGA family and have integrated PAM4 transceiver, KP4 FEC, 100GE, and 150G interlaken blocks.

The PAM4 transceivers in these Virtex UltraScale+ FPGAs are another great example of Xilinx’s transceiver technology leadership. With a variety of 56G interfaces on the VCU129 evaluation kit, designers can evaluate upcoming optics, cables, and protocols to build a future-proofing platform while preserving their existing investment.

VCU129 evaluation kit provides

  • Common high-speed interconnects for real-world evaluation
  • Onboard peripherals and memories for broad applications
  • Superior SerDes technology and thermal management

This VCU129 evaluation kit has everything you need to prototype your applications using Virtex UltraScale+ 58G PAM4 FPGAs.
