Enclustra Mars ZX3 Embedded Processing Module Features Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA

Enclustra Mars ZX3 embedded processing module (EPM)

Enclustra’s Mars ZX3 embedded processing module is based on the Xilinx Zynq-7020 Extensible Processing Platform. The Mars ZX3 EPM provides a complete system solution in an industry-standard SO-DIMM form factor (68 x 30 mm). The ZX3 is the third member of the Mars family of SO-DIMM sized FPGA modules. The first members included the Mars MX1 and Mars MX2 based on the Artix-7 family of Xilinx FPGA’s. All Mars modules share a common pinout (with some restrictions) which enables easy migration.

Mars ZX3 Embedded Processing Module Features

  • Xilinx Zynq-7020 AP SoC in the CLG484 package (XC7Z020)
  • ARM dual-core Cortex-A9
  • Xilinx Artix-7 28nm FPGA fabric
  • SO-DIMM form factor (68 x 30 mm, 200 pins)
  • 108 user I/Os
  • ARM peripherals (SPI, SDIO, CAN, I2C, UART)
  • FPGA I/Os (single-ended, differential or analog)
  • Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0 OTG PHYs
  • Up to 1 GB DDR3 SDRAM
  • 512 MB NAND flash
  • 16 MB QSPI flash
  • Single 3.3 V supply voltage

The Mars ZX3 system-on-chip (SoC) module combines Xilinx’s Zynq-7020 All Programmable SoC device with fast DDR3 SDRAM, NAND flash, quad SPI flash, a Gigabit Ethernet PHY and an RTC and thus forms a complete and powerful embedded processing system. The SO-DIMM form factor allows space-saving hardware designs as well as quick and simple integration of the module into the target application. The Mars ZX3 SoC module reduces development effort, redesign risk and improves time-to-market for your embedded system.

Antmicro provides eCos and Android for the Mars ZX3 embedded processing module.
