    The MicroZed™ is a single board computer based on the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC. It can be used as both a stand-alone evaluation board for basic SoC experimentation or combined with carrier card as an embeddable system-on-module (SOM). MicroZed contains 2 I/O headers that provide connection to 2 I/O banks on programmable logic (PL) side of Zynq®-7000 AP SoC device. In stand-alone mode, these 100 PL I/O are inactive. When plugged into a carrier card, the I/O are accessible in a manner defined by the carrier card design. This combined stand-alone/SOM platform can quickly move a design idea from concept to production making MicroZed the ideal platform for SoC based applications. Features include:

    Xilinx XC7Z010-1CLG400C SoC

    1GB of DDR3 SDRAM, 128Mb of QSPI flash, micro SD card interface
