E51 Arty (Artix-7) FPGA Dev Kit


Platform RISC-V: RISC-V is an open, free ISA enabling a new era of processor innovation through open standard collaboration. Born in academia and research, RISC-V ISA delivers a new level of free, extensible software and hardware freedom on architecture, paving the way for the next 50 years of computing design and innovation.

Microcontroller E51
Frequency 1500MHz
Flash 16MB
Vendor Xilinx


Please use coreplexip-e51-arty ID for board option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File):

platform = riscv
board = coreplexip-e51-arty

You can override default E51 Arty (Artix-7) FPGA Dev Kit settings per build environment using board_*** option, where *** is a JSON object path from board manifest coreplexip-e51-arty.json. For example, board_build.mcu, board_build.f_cpu, etc.

platform = riscv
board = coreplexip-e51-arty

; change microcontroller
board_build.mcu = e51

; change MCU frequency
board_build.f_cpu = 1500000000L


PIO Unified Debugger - “1-click” solution for debugging with a zero configuration.


You will need to install debug tool drivers depending on your system. Please click on compatible debug tool below for the further instructions and configuration information.

You can switch between debugging Tools & Debug Probes using debug_tool option in “platformio.ini” (Project Configuration File).

E51 Arty (Artix-7) FPGA Dev Kit does not have on-board debug probe and IS NOT READY for debugging. You will need to use/buy one of external probe listed below.
