The UltraZed PCIe Carrier Card supports the UltraZed-EG™ System-on-Module (SOM), providing easy access to the full 180 user I/O, 26 PS MIO, and 4 PS GTR transceivers available from the UltraZed-EG SOM via three Micro Headers. Two 140-pin Micro Headers on the carrier card mate with the UltraZed-EG SOM, connecting 180 of the UltraZed-EG Programmable Logic (PL) I/O to 2 Digilent Pmod™ compatible interfaces, FMC LPC slot, LVDS Touch Panel interface, push button switches, DIP switches, LEDs, Xilinx SYSMON, and clock oscillator.
The UltraZed PCIe Carrier Card also uses a 100-pin Micro Header to gain access to the UltraZed-EG SOM Processing System (PS) MIO and GTR transceiver pins as well as USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The UltraZed-EG SOM PS MIO and GTR pins are used on the PCIe Carrier Card to implement the microSD card, PMOD, USB 2.0/3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA host, Display Port, PCIe Endpoint interface, dual USB-UART, user LED and switch, and MAC Address device interfaces.
The PCIe Carrier Card also provides several power rails to the UltraZed-EG SOM including the 12V main input voltage, user selectable bank voltages for the PL I/O (VCCOs), and the necessary voltages for the GTR transceivers. The PCIe Carrier Card is a great vehicle for validating the UltraZed-EG SOM and provides an excellent starting point for creating your own UltraZed-EG custom carrier card.
SOM: The UltraZed-EG SOM is a highly flexible, rugged, System-On-Module (SOM) based on the Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC. Designed in a small form factor, the UltraZed-EG SOM packages all the necessary functions such as system memory, Ethernet, USB, and configuration memory needed for an embedded processing system. The UltraZed-EG provides easy access to 180 user I/O pins, 26 PS MIO pins, and 4 high-speed PS GTR transceivers along with 4 GTR reference clock inputs through three I/O connectors on the backside of the module. Available with the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC XCZU3EG-SFVA625 device, the UltraZed-EG SOM enables designers to build high-performance systems with confidence and ease. By simply plugging the off-the-shelf UltraZed-EG SOM into an application specific carrier card such as the Avnet IO Carrier Card, system bring-up and debug time can be cut in half, while overall system cost can be reduced by 20% or more verses a standard chip-down design.
