PCIe VU440 Prodigy™ Logic Module

The PCIe VU440 Prodigy Logic Module is S2C’s 6th generation SoC/ASIC prototyping system designed to work inside a PC/Server through a PCIe edge connector. The module is equipped with one Xilinx Virtex UltraScale 440 FPGA device and includes 5.54M System Logic Cells, 88.6Mb memory and 2,880 DSP Slices. The module provides 432 I/Os and 12 gigabit transceivers through 3 Prodigy Connectors and up to 32GB of DDR4 memory through 2 on-board SO-DIMM sockets. Users have access to S2C’s 80+ daughter cards to quickly build prototype targets. Users can perform an array of runtime features remotely through Ethernet or USB connections.
