The Motherboard Express uATX (or V2M-P1) is the first motherboard available in the Versatile Express range. It is built into an attractive, uATX sized two-part plastic enclosure. The lid is removable to give access to the motherboard for daughterboard installation and connection of test equipment. All connectors and controls are mounted on the rear panel.  

This motherboard has two sets of daughterboard header connectors. It must always be paired with a CoreTile Express or Soft Macro Model daughterboard to provide the main system processor. Optional LogicTile Express boards can be added to give custom IP development and validation capability.
