Single KU115 Prodigy™ Logic Module

The Single KU115 Prodigy Logic Module, based on Xilinx’s Kintex UltraScale XCKU115 FPGA, is the ideal solution for today’s consumer-based Internet of Things (IoT) designs and other small to medium-sized SoCs. Prodigy KU is well-suited for calculation-intensive applications with 5,520 DSP slices, the most of any other solution on the market. The system has 656 general purpose I/Os and 48 GTH transceivers on 8 high-speed connectors enabling high-speed communications. This low cost, all-purpose, stand-alone prototyping system is integrated with S2C’s market-leading, vast library of daughter cards to quickly build prototype targets.
