MYIR Announces Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC SoM and Development Board

Orange Pi Development Boards

MYIR Technology has been selling Xilinx Zynq-7000 FPGA + Arm systems-on-module since 2016, but the Chinese company has now announced new modules based on the more powerful Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC with Arm Cortex-A53 cores, Arm Cortex-R5 cores, and Ultrascale FPGA fabric, as well as a corresponding development board.

MYC-CZU3EG Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC CPU Module

MYC-CZU3EG Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC SoMCPU module specifications:

Mechanical Parameters

The company provides a Linux 4.9.0 BSP for the module, with source code for all drivers and the bootloader, as well as buildroot support to generate a custom rootfs. Typical applications would include “the Internet” (what?), cloud computing, data center, machine vision, military equipment, flight navigation, and more.

MYD-CZU3EG Development Board

It’s pretty hard to use the module as it is, and takes time to develop a custom carrier board for the final product, so as one should fully expect, the company also provides MYD-CZU3EG development board for quick evaluation and early software development.

Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC Development Board

Baseboard specifications:

  • Sockets for MYC-CZU3EG CPU module
  • PS Unit (Arm Cortex A53/R5 processors)
    • Storage – 1x microSD card, 1x SATA interface
    • Video Output – 1x DisplayPort (DP)
    • Networking – Gigabit Ethernet
    • USB – 1x USB 3.0 Type-C interface,  1x micro USB to UART port
    • Debugging – 2.54mm pitch 14-pin JTAG interface (PS, PL reused)
    • Expansion – 1x PCIe interface, 1x CAN terminal block
    • Misc – 1x user button, 1x system reset button, 1x ps-programming button; battery for RTC
  • PL Unit (FPGA fabric)
    • Video Output / Display I/F
      • 1x HDMI interface (signals reused with LCD/TSP interface)
      • LCD/TSP interface (24-bit RGB, supports resistive and capacitive touch screen panels)
    • 1x  Xilinx standard LPFMC interface
    • 4x SFP transceiver interfaces (up to 10Gpbs, only for Zynq UltraScale+ EV Devices)
    • Two-channel Pmod
    • ARDUINO headers
    • Misc – 1x blue LED for power, 1x red LED for FPGA programming, 1x green user LED
  • Power Supply – 12V DC
  • Dimensions – 195.33 x 123.95mm (6-layer PCB design)
  • Temperature Range – 0~70 Celsius (commercial grade)

MYD-CZU3EG development boardThe baseboard will be fitted with an XCZU3EG-1SFVC784E MPSoC module equipped with 4GB DDR4, 4GB eMMC, 128MB QSPI Flash, and a heatsink + fan (fansink) will also be part of the kit. Note the SFP interfaces can not be used with (ZU3)EG MPSoC, so you’d need to wait for MYiR to launch a CPU module powered by an EV MPSoC.

MYiR MYC-CZU3EG CPU module sells for $399 in the default configuration, while the MYD-CZU3EG development board goes for $659 with all accessories (cables, power supply, 16GB microSD card, etc…) to get started. You’ll find more details and purchase links on the product page.
