The Avnet Mini-Module Plus system consists of a modular baseboard with three slots supporting a FPGA module, a power supply module and an optional FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) application module. The Xilinx Kintex-7 FPGA version of the kit is the first of three planned kit offerings, with future modules planned for the Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA and Zynq-7000 EPP.

The baseboard of the Mini-Module Plus system features FPGA and power module interfaces, user switches, LEDs, USB-RS232 port, PCIe Gen 2 x 4 connector, SFP connector, DisplayPort output connector, FMC LPC slot, Micro SD card connector, XADC header and two PMOD connectors. The FPGA module is based on either the Xilinx Kintex-7 K410T or K325T FPGAs, and includes DDR3 memory, 64 Mb Flash memory, 10/100/1000 Ethernet PHY, USB 3.0 PHY, system clock, 8 Gigabit transceivers MGTs and 132 user input/output (I/O).
