Virtex UltraScale+ HBM VCU128 FPGA Evaluation Kit

by: AMD

The VCU128 board incorporates the all new AMD Virtex UltraScale+ VU37P HBM FPGA that utilizes stacked silicon interconnect to add HBM die next to the FPGA die on the package substrate.


Product Description

The VCU128 board incorporates the all new AMD Virtex™ UltraScale+™ VU37P HBM FPGA that integrates 8GB of HBM DRAM adjacent to FPGA die to enable massive memory bandwidth and much smaller PCB footprint. Virtex UltraScale+ HBM FPGAs alleviate bandwidth bottlenecks and power consumption associated with using parallel memories, like DDR4, in compute, database, and network acceleration applications.

The VCU128 evaluation kit is optimized for quickly prototyping applications using Virtex UltraScale+ HBM FPGAs.
