The XEM7001 is a small, business-card sized FPGA board featuring the Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA. Designed as a bare-bones system, the XEM7001 is an excellent experimenting or prototyping system which provides access to nearly all I/O pins on the 256-pin Artix-7 device.

The USB 2.0 interface provides fast downloads and easy access with FrontPanel software. An on-board PLL provides flexible clock generation for a variety of applications and on-board pushbuttons and LEDs allow simple user interfacing when FrontPanel components don’t suit the purpose. Dozens of pins at 0.1” spacing are provided and easily fit onto a standard prototyping board with 0.1” hole spacing.
