Earlier this year, I wrote about Trenz Electronic’s Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ system-on-module, but I’ve just found out I missed another interesting product from the company. The ZynqBerry is a board powered by Zilinx Zync Z-7007S or Z-7010 ARM + FPGA SoC with Raspberry Pi 2/3 form factor.
- Xilinx Zynq XC7Z007S-1CLG225C (Z-7007S) single core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore up to 766MHz + FPGA with 23K logic cells
- Xilinx Zynq XC7Z010-1CLG225C (Z-7010) dual core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore up to 866 MHz + FPGA with 28K logic cells
- System Memory – 128 or 512 MB DDR3L
- Storage – 16 MB Flash SPI flash + micro SD card slot
- Video Output – HDMI, MIPI DSI interface
- Audio Output – HDMI, 3.5mm audio jack (PWM audio only)
- Connectivity – 100 MBit Ethernet via (LAN9514 USB Hub with Ethernet
- USB – 4x USB 2.0 host ports
- Camera – MIPI CSI-2 interface
- Expansion – 40-pin Raspberry Pi compatible header
- Debugging – USB UART and JTAG ARM & FPGA debug via micro USB
- Power Supply – 5V via micro USB port
- Dimensions – Raspberry Pi form factor
Three different hardware versions of the board are available:
- TE0726-03R – Minimal version with Xilinx Z-7010, 128 MB RAM, no Ethernet, no USB, no HDMI, no MIPI connectors – 79 Euros
- TE0726-03M – Xilinx Z-7010 with 512 MB RAM – 109 Euros
- TE0726-03-07S-1C – New model equipped with Xilinx Z-7007S + 512 MB RAM – 99 Euros
The ARM core(s) on the board run PetaLinux, and FPGA part can be programmed using Vivado Design Suite. You’ll find software and hardware documentation, and demos (HDMI, SDR, ALSA, CSI) in the Wiki. Some knowledge of German may be useful in the download area.
ZynqBerry boards can be purchased directly on Trenz Electronic website.
