Mercury XU5 – more interfaces for the PL
Enclustra’s latest SoC module based on Xilinx Zynq® UltraScale™+ is in development. The Mercury XU5 features more direct interfaces to the FPGA fabric, in addition to a Gigabit Ethernet connection as well as up to 2 GByte DDR4 SDRAM. The module also has up to 8 GByte DDR4 ECC SDRAM connected directly to the processing system and a Gigabit Ethernet interface. Both the processing system and the FPGA matrix boast an up to four lanes PCIe® Gen2/3 connection.
In addition to six ARM cores, the 56 × 54 mm module features a Mali™400MP2 GPU, an H.264/H.265 video codec (for EV variants), 16 GByte eMMC flash memory, USB 3.0 and 178 User I/Os.
FPGA Kongress 2018
FPGA technologies have made a huge evolutionary leap, now, requiring new approaches and solutions from both hardware and software developers. The FPGA Congress 2018, which will take place from the 12.-14. of June 2018 in Munich, focuses on user-friendly solutions that can quickly be integrated into your own development processes.
Enclustra will exhibit the latest products like the Xilinx UltraScale+ MPSoC based Mercury XU5 and give an interesting lecture about the challenges when linking a FPGA to a high level language and how they can be solved. The speech called «Das universelle PCIe, USB und Ethernet Kommunikationspaket für FPGAs» is taking place at 11:15 on day 2. We are looking forward to meet you in Munich.
An easy way to sweeten your day
In order to be able to adapt our modules even more precisely to your requirements, we've rustled up a survey. Aptly titled "Your ideal module survey", with your valuable input you can help shape the development of the next generation of modules. As a thank you for your participation, you'll receive some delicious Swiss chocolate – click through to bag your bar.
Is your module configuration tool up to date?
The Module Configuration Tool (MCT) is a free application which allows the user to configure our modules and base boards via USB – without any additional hardware. It’s the swiss army knife for all Enclustra FPGA and SoC modules. Using the on-board USB connectors on the Enclustra base boards, users can program the module's FPGA and SPI flash, read the module EEPROM, and configure peripheral devices.
The latest release 2.3 brings several bugfixes, a new installer and support for our latest product family, the Cosmos XZQ10 system boards. The current version is always available to download on the Module Configuration Tool page.
Meet the experts at the Embedded Computing Conference
The annual Embedded Computing Conference has become an important meeting spot for the Swiss embedded computing industry. Hundreds of experts will be gathering information about the latest developments and exchange views with one another during the exhibition on June 5, 2018 in Winterthur/Switzerland.
Enclustra will be giving a lecture on how to accelerate algorithms with SoCs. FPGAs are great for solving problems that require a lot of computing power. Microprocessors, on the other hand, excel at control tasks and user interfaces. System on Chips like the Intel Arria 10 or the Xilinx UltraScale+ MPSoC combine both technology in one chip. On the basis of the Mandelbrot calculation the presentation shows, how a mathematically challenging problem can be solved efficiently on an SoC, running Linux (Ubuntu) on the ARM cores and the calculations in the FPGA fabric.
