PicoEVB: M.2/NGFF based Xilinx Artix-7 development board

PicoEVB is an affordable development board which can be used to evaluate and prototype PCI express designs using Xilinx Artix 7 FPGA on Windows or Linux hosts. The board is designed around the Artix 7 (XC7A50T).

PicoEVB is a complete development system in a M.2 (NGFF) 2230 footprint. The JTAG cable and all necessary power supplies are built in. It will work in the following slots:


  • PCI Express connection to the host via M.2 edge slot
  • Built-in JTAG cable works with Vivado and Labtools
  • Analog and digital IO
