Prodigy™ S7-13P Logic System

The Prodigy S7-13P Logic System is a high-performance, compact, all-in-one prototyping system that includes all components - FPGA module, power control module, and power supply - for maximum flexibility, durability, and portability. The system is based on Xilinx's Virtex® UltraScale+™ VU13P FPGA and provides 676 general purpose I/Os and 48 GTY transceivers on 11 high-speed connectors.



  • High scalability with 3.78M system logic cells, 455Mb internal memory, and 12,288 DSP slices
  • Provide 25Gbps transceivers on 4 QSFP28 connectors, each supporting 100G applications
  • Support MIPI and x8 PCIe Gen3
  • 576 I/Os and 15 Gigabit Transceivers on 4 Prodigy connectors
  • 32 I/Os and 16 Gigabit Transceivers on 2 Prodigy GT connectors
  • 68 I/Os and 1 Gigabit Transceiver on 1 FMC LPC connector
  • 16 user I/Os and one JTAG header on the module
  • Compatible with 90+ Prodigy Prototype Ready IP Library
  • Stackable design for easy capacity expansion
  • Compact, sleek, all-in-one chassis for clean, portable, and well-organized work environment

Large Capacity & Scalable

  • 3.78M system logic cells, 455Mb internal memory, and 12,288 DSP slices
  • Multiple Logic Systems can be conveniently connected together to expand capacity 

High Performance

  • Up to 100W power for each FPGA
  • Equal trace length for all the Prodigy I/O connectors

Flexible & Powerful I/Os

  • 576 I/Os and 15 GTY transceivers through 4 Prodigy I/O connectors
  • 16 GTY transceivers and 32 GPIOs through 2 PGT I/O connectors
  • 16 GTY transceivers through 4 QSFP28 connectors, each supporting 100G applications
  • I/O voltage can be adjusted to 1.2V, 1.35V, 1.5V, or 1.8V through runtime software in GUI with 4 status LEDs on-board to indicate I/O voltage

High Reliability

  • Screw-lock design to high-speed I/O connectors
  • Self-Tests – Isolate design issues from board issues conveniently with a software GUI
  • Monitoring of on-board voltage, current, and temperature with a software GUI
  • Automatic shut-down upon detection of over-current, over-voltage, or over-temperature

    - 6 programmable clock sources (0.16 ~ 350MHz)
    - 5 pairs of external clocks through MMCX connectors
    - 1 OSC socket
  • 3 design clock outputs through 3 pairs of MMCX connectors
  • 1 dedicated clock, reference clock, and reset for pin-multiplexing
  • 2 global resets sourced from push button or MMCX
  • 1 global reset sourced from runtime software in GUI

Multi-System Mode

  • 6 global clocks to be selected from
    - 6 local programmable clock sources (0.16 ~ 350MHz)
    - 6 global clock resources
  • 3 feedback clocks can be output to global clock sources
  • 2 global resets sourced from global reset sources
  • 1 dedicated clock, reference clock and reset for pin-multiplexing


  • Multiple FPGA configuration options through Ethernet port, USB port, JTAG, and micro SD card
  • Remote power on/off/recycle through Ethernet
  • Auto-detection of daughter cards and cables
  • Virtual switches & LEDs for simple tasks such as changing a setting or indicating a condition remotely
  • Virtual UART for firmware debugging
  • User Test Area – LEDs, push buttons, wwitches, and pin headers for testing and debugging
  • Optional on-board battery charging circuit makes FPGA bin file encryption easy
  • Optional ProtoBridge™ AXI software to co-simulate with software virtual platform/simulation models at transaction-level
