The XpressGXA10-LP1150T Arria® 10 GX 1150 PCIe board is a low-profile, highly integrated PCI-Express FPGA board with quad-10 GB or 40 GB 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 twice the density of 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 of up to 17.4 Gbps chip-to-chip.

FPGAs (field programmable gate arrays) are used to offer high-capacity logic and memory storage.

The XpressGXA10-LP1150T high-end board enables 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 DDR4 memory bank + 4 QDR2+ memory banks), JTAG connector, clocking (PLL oscillator), and more.

The Peripheral Component Interconnect Express, commonly known as PCI Express, is a high-speed serial computer expansion bus standard. Our FPGA board offers a PCI-Express x8 slot. Added to an Intel® Arria® 10 GX FPGA, it makes our boards quick and efficient.

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


We draw on our firmware, hardware and software skills, available schematics, datasheets and electronic design tools to program the FPGA board to fit into embedded systems.

With its 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 standard compliant.


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