Skoll is an easy to use FPGA Development board featuring Kintex 7 FPGA. It is specially designed for the development and integration of FPGA based accelerated features to other designs. This development board features Xilinx XC7K70T FPGA with FTDI’s FT2232H Dual-Channel USB device. The high-speed USB 2.0 interface provides fast and easy configuration download to the on-board SPI flash. No programmer or special down loader cable is needed to download the bit stream to the board. The second FTDI channel can be used to develop custom high data-rate USB based applications. Skoll provides user flexibility in adding their own peripherals though IO Expansion Headers.
