Mercury+ PE3

Base Board for Mercury/Mercury+ FPGA Modules

Mercury+ PE3 Base Board Mercury+ PE3 Base Board (Front)
Mercury+ PE3 PCIe Base Board (Back)



The Mercury+ PE3 is versatile PCIe® base board equipped with a multitude of I/O interfaces for use with the Mercury/Mercury+ family of FPGA & SoC modules, providing a head start for building custom FPGA and SoC based hardware systems. The board is equally well suited for rapid prototyping and for building FPGA systems without designing custom hardware.



  • Compatible with all Mercury & Mercury+ FPGA & SoC modules
  • Offers PCIe® ×8, USB Type-C 3.0 with DisplayPort and USB 3.0 host connector
  • QSFP+/SFP+ interfaces for high-speed communication applications
  • Suitable from prototype to series production
  • Board 171 × 112.4 mm with PCIe ×8 edge connector
  • Can also be used as a standalone board (not as PCIe card)
