Embedded Card (Discontinued)


The Embedded Card is an extension card having PCI Express Cable(*1), Gigabit Ethernet and UART interfaces and SRAM and Flash memories, for various FPGA development kits with Intel® High-Speed Mezzanine Connector (HSMC) defined by Intel®. The users of this card can start development and evaluation of embedded designs using Intel® soft processor core Nios II with the provided storage and work memory areas and peripheral interfaces, just by attaching only this card to the base board.

(*1) When used with Mpression Nitro board, supported only for HSMC Port A and B.
(*2) Cables are not included in the kit.


Main Device KSZ 9031MNX(Ethernet PHY), FT234XD(USB to UART Bridge), DS50PCI402SQ(PCIe Repeater)
Clock Device ICS854104AGILF(Clock Buffer)
