usb-powered kintex ultrascale+ board

Hi,

I am looking for a portable development board like the Arty board but with Ultrascale+, preferably Kintex (e.g. KCKU3P) and not Zynq. I googled quite a while but couldn't find anything that is USB-powered.

I would really appreciate it if someone could point me to the right direction, should such a board exist. Thanks a lot in advance!

Re: usb-powered kintex ultrascale+ board

Hi @lematthias

There are no Kintex UltraScale+ development boards that are USB-powered due to the power capabilities of USB and Kintex UltraScale+.

If you could provide some extra information on what you are trying to do, we can look at other possibilities.

Re: usb-powered kintex ultrascale+ board

@celliott  Thank you very much for your swift reply.

I understand. The board would also be used for live demonstrations and for development on the go. Thats why a board that doesn't need an external power supply would be a huge plus for me.

I am working on a project in which I need to integrate automatically generated IPs into infrastructures with changing capabilities. All I get are the IPs (XACT) and a digraph (e.g. IP x and y need to be connected via axis). As this needs to be completely automated, my tcl scripts are generated dynamically and already quite complex. I am now working on integrating PR.

Currently I have the vcu118 board and build times are quite long (2-3h) due to the size of the chip. Especially to get PR working I am looking for a board that allows me to do some rapid prototyping. For this purpose I would only need USB, Ethernet and some DDR memory. PR is giving me a hard time already and for this reason I am afraid to throw a (small) 7-series FPGA such as the Arty board into the mix.

So I guess my options are to either go with portable Artix-7 and get back to scripting or to get something like the kcu116 (which is still quite big). I am new to PR and don't know how much the workflow differs between architectures, which is why I thought I should stick to US+.

In any case, your answer already helped me to narrow the search. Thank you very much.
