MYIR launches FZ5 EdgeBoard AI Box for AI on the Edge

Back in July of this year (2020), MYRI technology announced the MYIR’s FZ3 deep learning accelerator card powered by the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ZU3EG Arm FPGA MPSoC and it is capable of delivering up to 1.2TOPS computing power. With only a few months since that launch, MYRI technology is now announcing another two related sets of products – FZ5 EdgeBoard AI Box and the FZ5 Card. The FZ5 EdgeBoard AI Box is an AI-focused computing platform that is based on the FZ5 AI Accelerator card which is an upgrade of the FZ3 card. The FZ5 looks more like a single board computer than an actual computing card. The FZ5 accelerator is powered by the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ZU5EV MPSoC which features a 1.5 GHz quad-core Arm Cortex-A53 64-bit application processor, a 600MHz dual-core real-time Arm Cortex-R5 processor, a Mali400 embedded GPU and is capable of delivering up to 2.4 TFLOPS as compared to the predecessor FZ3’s 1.2 TFLOPS based on the Xilinx […]

Sipeed TANG Hex is a Low-Cost Xilinx Zynq-7020 Arm FPGA Board

Last year, Sipeed launched a $5 FPGA board called Sipeed Tang and based on an entry-level Gowin GW1N-1-LV FPGA. But I had not noticed the company had also worked on a more powerful, yet still low-cost Xilinx Zynq-7020 board in a business card form factor not too dissimilar from the Raspberry Pi model B form factor. Meet Sipeed TANG Hex. So far a low-cost Zynq-7010 or Zynq-7020 board met you had to spend $99 to $199 with products such as MyIR Z-Turn and Digilent PYNQ-Z1. But Sipeed Tang HEX can be purchased for as little as $73 shipping on Aliexpress,  or 439 RMB ($62) on Taobao for people based in mainland China. It might be tempting to get a low-cost board to get started, but is it worth it? Read on to find out. Sipeed TANG Hex specifications: SoC – Xilinx Zynq-7020 (XC7Z020-1CLG484) dual-core Arm Cortex-A9 processor and FPGA with 85K logic cells, 4.9Mb Block RAM, 220 DSP slices System […]
