Do you need to pack the maximum amount of embedded resources into a minimum space? Then take a look at the just-announced Aldec TySOM-3-ZU7EV Embedded Prototyping Board. Aldec’s TySOM-3-ZU7EV board jams a Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ZU7EV MPSoC, DDR4 SoDIMM, WiFi, Bluetooth, two FMC sites, HDMI input and output ports, a DisplayPort connection, a QSFP+ optical cage, and a Pmod connector into a dense, 100x144mm footprint. Don’t let the word “Prototyping” in the product name fool you; in my opinion, this board looks like a good production foundation for many embedded designs.


The on-board Zynq UltraScale+ ZU7EV MPSoC itself provides you with a quad-core, 64-bit ARM Cortex-A53 MPCore processor; a dual-core, 32-bit ARM Cortex-R5 MPCore processor capable of lockstep operation that’s especially useful for safety-critical designs; an ARM Mali-400 MP2 GPU; four tri-mode Ethernet ports; two USB3.0 ports; a variety of other useful peripherals; and a very big chunk of Xilinx UltraScale+ programmable logic with 1720 DSP48E2 slices and more than 30Mbits of high-speed, on-chip SRAM in three forms (distributed RAM, BRAM, and UltraRAM). That’s an immense amount of processing capability—ample for a wide variety of embedded designs.


The board also includes a SoDIMM socket capable of holding 4Gbytes of DDR4 SDRAM, a MicroSD card socket capable of holding SD cards with as much as 32Gbytes of Flash memory, 256Mbits of on-board QSPI Flash memory, and 64Kbits of EEPROM.
