Product Description

The Nexys 2 is no longer in production. Once the current stock is depleted, it will be discontinued. We suggest migration to the Nexys A7.

The Nexys 2 is a powerful digital system design platform built around a Xilinx® Spartan®-3E FPGA. With 16Mbytes of fast SDRAM and 16Mbytes of Flash ROM, the Nexys 2 is ideally suited to embedded processors like Xilinx's 32-bit RISC MicroBlaze™. The on-board high-speed USB2 port, together with a collection of I/O devices, data ports, and expansion connectors, enable a wide range of designs to be completed without the need for any additional components. 

Now everyone can own a powerful, state-of-the-art development system for less than the cost of a textbook! 

In order to program and communicate with the Nexys 2 board, you must download and install the free Digilent Adept software.
