Xilinx UltraScale™ FPGA KCU1250 Characterization Kit

Xilinx UltraScale™ FPGA KCU1250 Characterization Kit provides everything needed to evaluate the 20 GTH 16.3Gbps transceivers available on the UltraScale XCKU040-FFVA1156 FPGA. Access to both the Integrated Bit Error Ratio Test (IBERT) demonstration and the Vivado® Design Suite enables quick evaluation of the industry-leading GTH transceivers. Each GTH Quad and its associated reference clock are routed from the FPGA to the BullsEye® connector pad. This enables users to connect to a broad range of evaluation platforms, from backplanes and optical evaluation boards to high-speed test equipment.
