MYIR Announces Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC SoM and Development Board

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:

  • MPSoC – Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ XCZU3EG-1SFVC784E (ZU3EG, 784 Pin Package) MPSoC with quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 processor @ 1.2 GHz, dual-core Cortex-R5 processor @ 600 MHz, Arm Mali-400MP2 GPU, and 16nm FinFET+ FPGA fabric (154K logic cells, 7.6 Mb memory, 728 DSP slices)
  • System Memory – 4GB DDR4 @ 2,400MHz
  • Storage – 4GB eMMC Flash, 128MB QSPI Flash
  • On-module chips
    • Gigabit Ethernet PHY
    • USB PHY
    • Intel Power Module
    • Clock Generator
  • 2x Samtec 0.5mm pitch 160-pin high-speed headers bringing out
    • Networking – Gigabit Ethernet
    • USB – USB 2.0 interface
    • 4x PS GTR transceivers along with 2 GTR reference clock inputs

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.

Price wise not the usual china gadget, but great for serious development. Would I have a suitable project I’d love to get one!
