The ADM-VPX3-7V2 is a high performance reconfigurable 3U OpenVPX format board based on the Xilinx Virtex-7 range of Platform FPGAs.

Features include PCI Express Gen2 interface, external memory, high density I/O using a Vita 57 standard, high Pin Count FMC interface, Gigabit Ethernet Interface, system monitoring and flash boot facilities.
A comprehensive cross platform API with support for Microsoft Windows, Linux and VxWorks provides access to the full functionality of these hardware features.
Placing the PCI Express bridge in bypass allows the creation of a Gen 2 x8 PCI Express endpoint design directly into the target FPGA (Target FPGAs VX330T and VX690T can also support Gen3 x8 PCI Express designs).
The ADM-VPX3-7V2 is available in a cost reduced form without a separate Bridge FPGA for high-volume production orders. A Rear Transition Module (RTM) is available to accelerate development by providing monitor and control access to all Rear (backplane) IO signals.
