TySOM-3-ZU7EV Embedded Prototyping Board

TySOM-3-ZU7 is a compact prototyping board containing Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC device which provides 64-bit processor scalability while combining real-time control with soft and hard engines for graphics, video, waveform, and packet processing. Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ZU7EV-FFVC1156 MPSoC contains a Video Codec Unit which supports H.264/H.265, and also it has the biggest FPGA in the UltraScale+™ MPSoC family. This chip includes a Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 as an Application Processing Unit, Dual-core ARM Cortex-R5 as a Real-Time Processing Unit and ARM Mali-400 MP2 as a Graphics Processing Unit. TySOM-3-ZU7 is designed to assure flexibility in selecting peripherals because of leveraging all the features of the Zynq UltraScale+ ZU7EV-FFVC1156 MPSoC chip. This prototyping board contains 4 Gb DDR4 Memory for the Programmable Logic (PL) and 8GB DDR4 SODIMM Memory for the Processing System (PS). This board includes 2 Gb NAND Memory and supports up to 32GB of SSD storage in Micro-SD card. Communication and networking is enabled by ×2 Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth, CAN, Pmod, 4× USB 3.0, USB to UART Bridge, SATA and QSFP+ connector. Multimedia interfaces are provided using DisplayPort, HDMI IN/OUT. To expand the peripherals, 2× FMC (1× HPC and 1× LPC) VITA 57.1-2010 compliant are provided on the board. Thus, additional devices can be connected as FMC Daughter Cards that are provided by Aldec and other vendors.
