List of FPGA dev boards for PCI Express


PCIe edge cards

The development boards listed below all have PCIe edge connectors (aka. goldfingers) and are designed to be plugged into the PCIe slot of a PC or other root complex. They are geared for the development of hardware accelerations for applications running on the host processor.

When choosing one of these boards be careful to make sure that it is going to fit in the intended enclosure; they are not all designed to fit inside a standard desktop PC case.
