Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit

The Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit delivers a complete design environment that includes all hardware and software you need to start taking advantage of the performance and capabilities available in Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGAs for your design needs.

Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA Development Kit

You can use this development kit to:

  • Develop and test PCI Express* (PCIe) 3.0 designs using the PCI-SIG*-compliant development board
  • Develop and test memory subsystems consisting of DDR4, DDR3, QDR IV, and RLDRAM III memories
  • Develop modular and scalable designs by using the FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) connectors to interface to a FMC mezzanine card provided by Intel partners and supporting protocols, such as JESD204B, Hybrid Memory Cube, Bandwidth Engine 2, Serial RapidIO*, 10 Gbps Ethernet (10GbE), SONET, Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI), OBSAI, and many others
