Single VU440 Prodigy™ Logic Module

The Single VU440 Prodigy Logic Module is the industry’s smallest form-factor, all-purpose, stand-alone prototyping system based on Xilinx’s Virtex UltraScale XCVU440 FPGA. The system has 1,176 general purpose I/Os and 44 GTH transceivers on 10 high-speed connectors, and users have access to S2C’s 80+ daughter cards to quickly build prototype targets. Utilizing S2C 6th generation technology, users can perform an array of runtime features remotely through both Ethernet and USB. Up to 16 Single VU Logic Modules can be configured in a Cloud Cube™ to support a large-scale SoC/ASIC and to be shared among multiple users.
