AXIOM Project board combines Arduino footprint with Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC. See it at Embedded World

Last month, the European AXIOM Project took delivery of its first board based on a Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ZU9EG MPSoC. (See “The AXIOM Board has arrived!”) The AXIOM project (Agile, eXtensible, fast I/O Module) aims at researching new software/hardware architectures for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).

The board in fact presents the pinout of an Arduino Uno so you can attach an Arduino Uno-compatible shield to the board. The presence of the Arduino UNO pinout enables fast prototyping and exposes the FPGA I/O pins in a user-friendly manner.

 

Here are the board specs:

 

  • Wide boot capabilities: eMMC, Micro SD, JTAG
  • Heterogeneus 64-bit ARM FPGA Processor: Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ ZU9EG MPSoC
    • 64-bit Quad core A53 @ 1.2GHz
    • 32-bit Dual core R5 @ 500MHz
    • DDR4 @ 2400MT/s
    • Mali-400 GPU @ 600MHz
    • 600K System Logic Cells
  • Swappable SO-DIMM RAM (up to 32Gbytes) for the Processing System, plus a soldered 1Gbyte RAM for Programmable Logic
  • 12 GTH transceivers @ 12.5 Gbps (8 on USB Type C connectors + 4 on HS connector)
  • Easy rapid prototyping, because of the Arduino UNO pinout

 

You can see the AXIOM board for the first time during next week’s Embedded World 2017 at the SECO UDOO Booth, at the SECO booth, and at the EVIDENCE booth.

 

Please contact the AXIOM Project for more information.
