Supported FPGA development boards with PCIe?

Which FPGA development boards are well-supported by Xilinx?

In past exercise, Xilinx declined to support a custom FPGA board when we were working through a problem with Xilinx IP (somewhat understandable). In the upcoming exercise, we would like to use a development board that is better supported by Xilinx.

Looking for an FPGA development board that can plug into a PCIe slot. The Xilinx KCU116 board looks interesting, though the FPGA might be small. We are still early in sizing, but first pass design called for the (currently?) largest Kintex - XCKU115. The KCU116 has a smaller XCKU5P FPGA. Right. :)

If we have trouble with Xilinx IP in future, what development board(s) get best support?

Are we limited to Xilinx boards, or are other development boards supported?

If we need a development board for a larger Kintex, what is our best choice?

Hello, @dreadedhill

You can get technical support from Xilinx for Xilinx boards.

You can use the evaluation board to confirm the functions you need.
At the same time, you will need to estimate the size of the design and select the required devices.
Of the Kintex series, KCU116 has the largest size device.
If you need KU115 for the above function check, please get technical support from KU115 developer.
