Digilent introduces USB104 A7 Xilinx FPGA Board for PC/104 Single Board Computer. Integrate FPGAs into PC/104 and other small form factor designs


Digilent USB104 A7, available in Mouser, brings power and versatility to your PC/104 stackable Single Board Computer (SBC). The USB104 A7 features the industrial temperature rated Xilinx Artix-7 XC7A100T. With Digilent High-Speed Data Converter Modules, users can run FPGA-based data acquisition applications on PCs. The ideal application includes industrial automation, embedded OEM and telecommunications.

I/O is provided with on-board LEDs and push-buttons, and, of course, three 12-pin Pmod ports. A SYZYGY-compatible Zmod port is available as well, allowing for high-speed signal acquisition and generation. An onboard USB hub and controller conveniently interfaces the USB104 A7 with JTAG, UART, and a parallel data interface (DPTI) through a single connection. The DPTI data transfer interface provides host-to-FPGA data transfer and is easily managed with Digilent’s Adept 2 application. This ease of use and high-speed data transfer is especially useful for deployed systems.
