The Nexys Video is a powerful platform for audio/video applications. Built around the Artix®-7 XC7A200T, the most powerful chip from the Xilinx® Artix-7 FPGA family, the Nexys Video has all the performance and FPGA real estate needed for high-bandwidth and low-latency A/V processing.

Utilizing A/V signals is made easy with an on-board Mini DisplayPort, three high-speed digital video ports, and a 24-bit audio codec. One can conveniently scale their design with Ethernet, UART, and USB interfaces and integrate it into larger systems. There is no limit to customizability with the 160-pin FMC LPC connector and four additional Pmod ports.

The Nexys Video is supported by Xilinx's Vivado Design Suite, including the free WebPACK edition, making the Nexys Video a great option for any budget.

Guides and demos are available to help users get started quickly with the Nexys Video. These can be found through the Support Materials tab.

    A neat board for RISC-V projects

    Posted by Digilent Customer on 28th Sep 2020

    I used this board to implement a Small SonicBoom core. Very handy, although it might not meet the timing constraints at the first try, but has room for design enhancement.

    Demo software no longer supported

    Posted by Digilent Customer on 15th Sep 2020

    I bought this board with the hopes of testing and further developing on the looper demo. However, I have just learned that the IP is no longer supported for Vivado 2020.1. The learning curve for FPGAs is steep enough as it is already, any help beginners can get would benefit all greatly
