ARM Cortex Support HES™ supports ARM® dual-core Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ with Xilinx® Zynq™-7000 MPSoC, enabling designers to leverage the serial processing capabilities of the Cortex-A9 processor for applications that require intensive computations with the parallel processing capabilities of HES ASIC prototyping platform to create applications across a diverse range of markets including: Video, Vision, Communications, Control Systems and Bridging. The 8 to 633 million ASIC gate scalable capacity of HES, coupled with open-source Linux, Android, and FreeRTOS solutions available from Xilinx, delivers a powerful verification platform for combined hardware and software design teams. Depending on the design size, functional and PHY requirements the Zynq MPSoC can be incorporated in two distinctive configurations: Single-board solution with HES-US-440 The board HES-US-440 combines the largest Virtex Ultrascale FPGA XCVU440 with the largest Xilinx Zynq-7000 MPSoC XC7Z100 on a single PCB board that allows building a self contained, single-board embedded testbench or implementing other prototypes that require CPU based controller. HES-US-440 Key Features: 26 million gates FPGA capacity in a single Virtex UltraScale XCVU440 FPGA Scalable to 52 million gates (2x HES-US-440 connected via FMC interconnect board) ARM Cortex in the Zynq-7000 XC7Z100 MPSoC FPGA On-board peripherals USB, Ethernet, PCIe, SATA, QSFP+ On-board memories DDR4, DDR3, RLDRAM-3, SPI Flash, NAND Flash, microSD Standardized FMC extension connectors and available daughter cards Open-source Linux, Android, and FreeRTOS solutions available from Xilinx Related blog article: Software Driven Test of FPGA Prototype Extension Daughter Card - HES7DB-SoC The daughter card HES7DB-SoC extends the capabilities of HES boards by providing the ARM Cortex A9 dual-core CPU in a programmable Xilinx Zynq-7000 device and additional peripherals that are commonly used in SoC designs. It contains the full size BPX connector which enables many configurations with both HES-7 and HES-US base boards to support design sizes from 8 to 633 million ASIC gates. HES7DB-SoC Key Features: Xilinx Zynq-7000 module (XC7Z045-FFG676), dual core ARM Cortex A9 MPCore Media Interfaces – Ethernet PHY 10/100/1000, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, USB 2.0 DEVICE, USB 2.0 HOST, USB 2.0 OTG, HDMI, and Audio Codec (Stereo Speaker and MIC Interfaces) Memories – DDR3, SO-DIMM DDR2, SD Socket, SPI Flash, NAND Flash, I2C Flash Connectors – ARM Debug, RS232, I2C, SPI, and GPIO Open-source Linux, Android, and FreeRTOS solutions available from Xilinx Recorded Webinar: ARM Cortex SoC Prototyping Platform for Industrial Applications Learn how to tackle industrial design applications with HES-7™, which supports ARM® Cortex™-A9 based designs by leveraging Xilinx® Zynq® All Programmable SoC.
