Product Description

The Nexys A7 board is a complete, ready-to-use digital circuit development platform based on the latest Xilinx® Artix-7™ Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). With its large, high-capacity FPGA, generous external memories, and a collection of USB, Ethernet, and other ports, the Nexys A7 can host designs ranging from introductory combinational circuits to powerful embedded processors. Several integrated peripherals, including an accelerometer, temperature sensor, digital MEMs microphone, speaker amplifier, and various I/O devices, enable the Nexys A7 to be used for a wide range of designs without the need for additional components.


  • Model:  XC7A100T
  • FPGA Features
    • Internal clock speeds exceeding 450MHz
    • On-chip analog-to-digital converter (XADC)
    • Programmable over JTAG and Flash
    • 15,850 programmable logic slices, each with four 6-input LUTs and 8 flip-flops
    • 4,860 Kbits of fast block RAM
    • Six clock management tiles, each with a phase-locked loop (PLL)
    • 240 DSP slices
    • On-chip dual-channel 1 MSPS analog-to-digital converter (XADC)
  • System Features
    • USB-JTAG programming circuitry
    • 128MiB DDR2
    • 16 MB QSPI Flash 
      • Due to supply chain constraints, either the S25FL127S or S25FL128S Flash Memory may be loaded on your board. These parts are not functionally equivalent, but flash programming through Vivado and the QSPI boot mode are not affected. More information can be found in the Nexys A7 Reference Manual, available in the Support tab. 
    • Powered from USB or any 7V-15V source
    • microSD card connector
  • System Connectivity
    • 10/100 Mbps Ethernet
      • Note: Xilinx-provided software support for the Nexys A7's ethernet interface is limited in versions of Vivado 2019.2 and newer. For more information, see the Ethernet PHY section of the Nexys A7 reference manual, which can be found through the Support tab.
