Meet the Alchitry Ft Element Board! Alchitry Elements are expansion boards similar to Arduino shields or Raspberry Pi HATs that work with your Au and Au+ FPGA Development Boards. The Ft Element is equipped with four 50-pin board to board connectors on the underside and top of the board that snap to the Alchitry Au and Au(+) boards. It also adds a USB 3.0 200MB/s high speed interface to your Alchitry board stack via the USB-C connector.
Please note that this board is only functional with the higher end Au & Au+ FPGA Dev boards that feature the Xilinx Artix 7.
- USB-C connector w/ 200MB/s data rate to board to board connectors
- For use with projects that require data transfer rates greater than standard on board USB to serial 12Mbaud
- 200 Mbps* ~ 191 Mbaud* - Note: this is not exact and depends on how you are using the Dev board in conjunction with the FT element board.
