  • Small form factor - 2” x 3.44”
  • Expandability - Accessory FMC and HSMC daughter cards to provide instant connectivity to Xilinx and Altera FPGAs
  • Connectivity - Headers for external interfaces such as I2C, I2S, and SPI
  • Power Source - Self-powered USB or external supply through 2.5mm jack
  • Voltage Selection Option for the VIO Banks: 1.8V, 2.5V and 3.3V.
  • Clock Source - 19.2 MHz crystal or from FPGA (CLKIN or CLKIN_32).
  • Debug Interfaces - JTAG and UART
  • On-board Memories - SPI flash and I2C EEPROM




Pactron provides a compact and powerful development kit for Cypress’s EZ-USB FX3, the industry’s only programmable USB 3.0 peripheral controller. The development kit is designed to interface with standard FPGA boards with FMC or HSMC connectors. The I/O voltage of the GPIF-II interface can be set to 1.8V, 2.5V or 3.3V using hardware configuration. In addition to taking the GPIF-II signals, the 120-pin expansion connector is also connected to I2C, I2S, control signals, and power rails (+1.2V, +3.3V, +5.0V). The kit provides access to all the interfaces of FX3, making it an ideal choice for developers.



Cypress’s EZ-USB FX3 is the industry’s only programmable USB 3.0 peripheral controller with an integrated USB 3.0 PHY. FX3 comes with a fully configurable General Programmable Interface (GPIF™II), which can be programmed in 8-, 16-, and 32-bit configuration. GPIF II enables FX3 to communicate directly with any FPGAs at a data rate of up to 400 Megabyte per second. In addition, FX3’s on-chip ARM9 CPU core with 512 KB RAM delivers 200 MIPS of computational power, which is capable of keeping up with real-time, data-intensive tasks.
