FMU3 series FPGA modules are equipped with a USB3.0 port.
The on-board FPGA can communicate with a host PC through the USB 3.0 port with unprecedented speed (~340MB/sec sustained transfers)

FMU3 series FPGA modules can be mounted on a carrier board using 2 high-speed connectors.
There are 148 IO pins available to the end-user.
The board is supplied with drivers and API for easy USB 3.0 communication with a PC.

The on-board FPGA on FMU3 series modules can be programmed via the USB port, via JTAG or via the on-board Flash. There is a Micro-SD card slot accessible via the FPGA and 1Gbit DDR3 SDRAM.
