The ONIX–VU440 is based on the UltraScale™ XCVU440 FPGA, the largest FPGA in the world designed by Xilinx. The module board is designed for ASIC prototyping, to provide the best available solution for users’ requirements.  

The flexible and scalable design of the ONIX–VU440 supports three modes of operation, including:

A “desktop” Standalone Mode

PCIe plug in card

Mezzanine Module mode of operation while plugged into the Host Board.
