Overview

The Mars ZX3 system-on-chip (SoC) module combines Xilinx's Zynq-7020 All Programmable SoC device with fast DDR3 SDRAM, NAND flash, quad SPI flash, a Gigabit Ethernet PHY and an RTC and thus forms a complete and powerful embedded processing system.

The SO-DIMM form factor allows space-saving hardware designs as well as quick and simple integration of the module into the target application.

The Mars ZX3 SoC module reduces development effort, redesign risk and improves time-to-market for your embedded system.

 

Highlights

  • Built around Xilinx's Zynq-7020 All Programmable SoC
  • Combines the flexibility of a CPU system with the parallel processing power and real-time capabilities of an FPGA system
  • Supports analog differential inputs
  • Available in industrial temperature range
  • Supports USB 2.0, CAN and Gigabit Ethernet
  • Linux BSP and tool chain available

Benefits

  • A complete and powerful embedded processing system in the industry-standard SO-DIMM form factor
  • Simple, low cost and yet rugged assembly
  • Simple and low-cost integration due to the on-board standard interfaces (USB, Ethernet, CAN)
  • Fast boot times and plenty of non-volatile memory space due to the NAND flash
  • High-bandwidth program and data memory due to the high-performance hard-macro memory controller
  • Lowest power consumption due to the high-efficiency DC/DC converters
 

Features

  • Xilinx Zynq-7020 AP SoC in the CLG484 package (XC7Z020)
    • ARM® dual-core Cortex™-A9
    • Xilinx Artix™-7 28 nm FPGA fabric
  • SO-DIMM form factor (67.6 x 30 mm, 200 pins)
  • 108 user I/Os
    • ARM peripherals (SPI, SDIO, CAN, I2C, UART)
    • FPGA I/Os (single-ended, differential or analog)
  • Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0 OTG PHYs
  • Up to 1 GB DDR3 SDRAM
  • 512 MB NAND flash
  • 64 MB quad SPI flash
  • Single 3.3 V supply voltage

Mars Heat Sink

Mars Heatsink (Top)

The Mars Heat Sink is the optimal solution to cool the Mars ZX3. It covers the whole module surface and can cool not only the FPGA but also other components on board. To cool the module even further, a mounting slot in the center of the heat sink makes it easy to attach fans of different sizes - see the technical drawing for details. The heat sink comes with a gap pad for the FPGA and four screws to attach it to the module PCB. To order the Mars Heat Sink (HS-MA1), add it in the order form next to the Mars ZX3, for only EUR 9 / USD 10 / CHF 10.
