Hello, I am looking for a Xilinx Virtex 5 FPGA evaluation board for my 
work at TU Darmstadt. I need a Virtex 5 board, because the board needs 
to have XGI expansion headers pins for a project we're working on. 
Examples of such boards would be the Xilinx ML501 Evaluation Platform or 
the Xilinx ML505 Evaluation Platform. We would prefer to purchase a 
fully functional Xilinx ML501 Evaluation Platform as we have an existing 
project with code specifically designed for this board, but any Xilinx 
Virtex 5 FPGA evaluation board having XGI expansion headers pins would 
also be fine for us. If you have an offer for such a board, please reply 
here or contact me at:

as a University employee, you can buy the Virtex-5 OpenSPARC Evaluation 
Platform Academic (ML509) from Xilinx/Digilent at discounted prices. The 
ML501 is identical to the ML501, except for using an FPGA with larger 

The board used to be available from Trenz Electronic, but they do not 
have any in stock right now (it can't hurt to ask if they can get the 
board, the people at Trenz are very friendly):

However, you should be able to order the board directly from Digilent:

Of course, the ML50_9_ is identical to the ML501 except for the larger

Hi Michael,

I too need ML509 or ML501 for the same above purpose. If your board is 
still available or if you know someone who is hoping to sell I'm quite 
interested in buying it and would be a great help indeed. Anyone is 
welcome to contact me via piyumalranawaka@gmail.com

Best Regards,
