Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc. has introduced the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable (AP) SoC Mini-Module Plus – a system-on-module (SOM) based on the Xilinx Zynq-7000 AP SoC XC7Z045T device.
This module is the newest addition to Avnet’s Mini-Module Plus Development System, which is a fully customizable modular platform comprised of a baseboard, FPGA/SoC module, power module, and optional FPGA Mezzanine Card (FMC). The new Zynq-7000 Mini-Module Plus module complements the two previously announced Kintex-7 FPGA Mini-Module Plus modules, which are based on the 7K325T and 7K410T FPGAs.
Designed as a complete system on a module, the Xilinx Zynq-7000 AP SoC Mini-Module Plus packages all the necessary functions needed for an embedded processing system onto a small footprint. In addition to the Xilinx Zynq-7000 AP SoC XC7Z045 device, the Zynq Mini-Module Plus features 1GB DDR3 SDRAM, Flash memory, a 10/100/1000 Ethernet PHY, a USB 2.0 OTG port, a microSD card socket, a USB-UART port, a system clock, eight Gigabit transceivers (MGTs) and 132 user I/O pins. The I/O pins can be configured as single-ended signals as well as differential low-voltage differential system (LVDS) pairs. The onboard 10/100/1000 Ethernet and USB 2.0 ports add networking capabilities, while the configurable I/O and the MGTs offer versatile interface options.
“Designers looking for an off-the-shelf, fully configurable, high-performance system on a module, will find the Zynq-7000 AP SoC Mini-Module Plus from Avnet an ideal fit,” said Jim Beneke, vice president of global technical marketing for Avnet Electronics Marketing. “By combining the SoC module with the Mini-Module Plus Baseboard and Mini-Module Plus power module, designers can quickly prototype their design concept and then easily move the modules to a custom designed system for production.”
A complete Xilinx Zynq-7000 AP SoC Mini-Module Plus System including Mini-Module Plus baseboard, Zynq-7000 AP SoC module, and Mini-Module Plus power module is offered for $2,095. Order entry is available now (Click Here) and systems will begin shipping in June.
