Providing VIO Externally

The XEM8350 is designed to support programmable VIO using on-board switching regulators as described in the Expansion Connectors and Device Settings sections of this documentation.

If your application requires that you provide these supplies from your peripheral design, the rework illustrated below will be required to safely disconnect the on-board regulator(s) from these VIO. After this rework is applied, you will be able to provide VIO1 and/or VIO2 through the expansion connector from your peripheral, subject to the limitations of the FPGA itself.

The handling described is not supported by Opal Kelly and will permanently void your warranty. We are not responsible for damage to the module, your peripheral, or any components on the module as a result of performing this rework or operating the device with this rework applied.
