The CW305 is NewAE Technology’s first FPGA target board. It brings loads of features including a simplified USB interface for talking to the FPGA, an external PLL for adjusting frequency response, a programmable VCC-INT supply, and diode protection for use in fault injection environments. Also available with a special BGA socket, giving you the ability to perform tests on multiple FPGA devices – perfect for checking Physically Unclonable Functions (PUFs) under the exact same environmental conditions across multiple FPGAs.

This board requires an external oscilloscope or capture box for performing the power measurement. If you are looking for a complete toolchain, purchase the CW305 along with the ChipWhisperer 2-Part version. This will provide you with a complete toolchain for experimentation on FPGA targets. Please see the Wiki and our Webstore for further documentation.

This board has multiple options to suit your research needs, from shunt resistance, whether to have decoupling capacitors on the VVC-INT network, to which FPGA is mounted; XC7A35T-2FTG256, XC7A100T-2FTG256, or BGA Socket with heatsink (by Advanced Interconnect).
