Model 8258 ACAP Development Platform

Accelerate compute-intensive application development with Model 8258 – a proven, turnkey 6U VPX application development platform powered by Xilinx® Versal® ACAP technology.
Model 8258 6U VPX platform for Dual Versal ACAP

Jump-start development with the Model 8258 platform to build, run and debug applications on the SCFE6931 dual Versal ACAP (advanced compute acceleration platform) processing module – right out-of-the-box. The preconfigured development platform saves valuable time and brings parallel processing resources with high-speed 100 GigE interfaces to your fingertips. All this is coupled with the Navigator® FPGA design kit (FDK) and board support package (BSP) to expedite design, and the power, cooling and connections needed in a small desktop footprint.


The heterogeneous mix of Versal ACAP scalar, adaptable and vector processing resources gives designers the freedom to assign compute power to the processing engine most suitable to the task at hand, and the ability to adaptively reassign resources as required. This flexibility delivers as much as ten times the performance over dedicated processor types alone and is ideal for AI, EW and SIGINT capabilities.


  • 1-slot, small footprint chassis 
  • Up to eight optional MPO interfaces to support 100 GigE
  • Supports VITA 66.4
  • Navigator® BSP for software development
  • Navigator® FDK for custom IP development

Expedite Development Time

A Navigator® FPGA design kit (FDK) and board support package (BSP) provide operational control of the hardware and easy configuration of new FPGA functions. And all code developed can easily transition to the deployed environment to keep your engineering on track.
