The XpressGXA10-LP1150T Arria® 10 GX 1150 PCIe board  is a low-profile, highly-integrated PCI Express FPGA board with quad-10G or 40G Ethernet channels engineered for both prototyping and field deployment.

The board is based on the Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA in F40 package. The Arria 10® GX FPGA is a semiconductor that saves board space with integration (with 2X more density than the previous generation), increases productivity and decreases time-to-market. It uses up to 40% lower power than previous-generation FPGAs. This processor is enabled with up to 96 full-duplex transceivers with data rates up to 17.4 Gbps chip-to-chip.

FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Array) are used to offer a high capacity of logic and memory storage.

The XpressGXA10-LP1150T high-end board allows all engineers to design complex applications using PCIe and 10 Gigabit Ethernet as their main communication interfaces.

Our Arria® 10 GX 1150 PCIe board offers primary interfaces and components, such as PCB and circuitry, high speed DDR4 (1 x DDR4 memory bank + 4 x QDR2+ memory banks), JTAG conector, clocking (PLL oscillator) and more.

The Peripheral Component Interconnect Express, most known as PCI Express, is a high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard. Our FPGA board offers a PCI express slots x8. Added to an Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA, this allows our board to be quick and efficient.

The form-factor of the Arria® 10 GX 1150 PCIe board is low-profile.


Thanks to a strong embedded development environment, driven by firmware, hardware and software skills, available schematics, datasheet and design tools, the FPGA board is programmed to fit into embedded systems.

Through a perfectly suited Arria® 10 GX FPGA design, this evaluation board offers rapid-prototyping, for a quick time-to-market.


The Arria® 10 GX 1150 PCIe board is RoHS and REACH standards compliant.


Our Arria® 10 GX 1150 FPGA development board is specially designed for our customers needs and specifications.
REFLEX CES offers a wide roadmap of PCIe boards. Based on the same low-profile form factor and an Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA is the XpressGXA10-LP1151B. If you are looking for bigger form factor and FPGAs, we will offer three boards based on Intel® Stratix® 10 FPGAs and with full-height profile : the XpressGX S10-FH201G, the XpressGX S10-FH800G and the Development Kit Sargon. For even better FPGA performance, discover our brand new board based the Intel® Agilex™ I-Series SoC FPGA: the XpressSX AGI-FH400G.
