Base Board for Mercury/Mercury+ FPGA Modules

Mercury+ PE1 PCIe Base Board Mercury+ PE1 Base Board (Front)
Mercury+ PE1 PCIe Base Board (Back)


Upgrade from PE1-200 to PE1-300 or PE1-400

The Mercury+ PE1-200 (ME-PE1-200-C) is end-of-life (EOL). After stock depletion, the PE1-200 variant will no longer be available. Upgrade to the PE1-300 or PE1-400 variant.


The Mercury+ PE1 is versatile PCIe® base board with 3 models for Mercury (Mercury PE1-200) and Mercury+ (Mercury PE1-300/400) form factor FPGA and SoC modules, providing a head start for building custom FPGA and SoC based hardware systems. It supports up to two FMC low pin count (LPC) connectors, or one FMC high pin count (HPC) connector.



  • Compatible with all Mercury & Mercury+ FPGA modules
  • Offers PCIe® Gen2 x4, USB 3.0 and multiple USB 2.0 interfaces
  • I/O interfaces for almost all applications
  • Suitable from prototype to series production
  • Standard PCI Express card solution size (160 × 111.2 mm, PCB only)
  • Can also be used as a standalone board (not as PCIe card)
