Free seminar Getting started with Xilinx Zynq SoC

Enclustra and Avnet SILICA are arranging a free seminar on the SoC design integration.

Don’t miss how engineers from Avnet SILICA and Enclustra illustrate how you can utilize the full performance of a SoC, even with minimal VHDL and FPGA know-how. If you’re working with microcontrollers, DSPs, SoCs and FPGAs – you should join us! Learn for which applications SoCs are good for, how you can shorten your development time, which tools are required and many more interesting things.

Incredible floating point performance, incredible price

Mar 20, 2017

Enclustra Mercury+ AA1 Intel Arria 10 SoC module

The Mercury+ AA1 SoC module, based on the Intel Arria 10 SoC, offers up to 480,000 system logic cells and an extremely juicy amount of performance at a very tasty price point. In addition to its integrated dual-core ARM processor, the module offers up to 286 user I/Os, and 12 multi-gigabit transceivers each offer a data transfer rate of up to 12.5 Gbps. Interfaces for USB 3.0, PCIe Gen3 ×4/Gen2 ×8 and Gigabit Ethernet make the module suitable for almost all applications. Its fast DDR4 SDRAM with a bandwidth of 9.6 GByte/sec and ECC also means that it's well suited for application that require the utmost data integrity.

Agile RF Source for trapped ion experiments

Feb 27, 2017

For a customer we developed a Agile RF Source for trapped ion experiments. The Xilinx Spartan-6 based RF source provides multiple DDS channels for modulating the frequency, phase and amplitude of laser light used in the experiments. Also available are feedback channels for monitoring the light intensity at another point in the system and thus being able to measure the experimental noise and drift introduced by the optical components.

We took the existing PCB design and brushed it up to make it ready for the modifications and extension to come. Furthermore, we implemented the first evolution as planned in the roadmap, enabling even more sophisticated experiments. Let's get quantum computing started!

Motion Control Kit for Intel FPGAs

Feb 21, 2017

Enclustra Universal Drive IP Core Evaluation Kit

The tried-and-tested Enclustra BLDC Evaluation Kit is now also available for Intel FPGAs. In addition to an evaluation license for the Universal Drive Controller IP Core from a Mercury SA1 SoC module, which is based on an Intel Cyclone® V SoC, the Kit also includes a Mercury+ PE1-200 base board, an FMC-DR2 power electronics card and a Maxon BLDC Motor with MR encoder

Set lock times for high and low-side switches so that they are accurate to just a few nanoseconds or PWM and control frequencies to an accuracy of a few hundred Kilohertz without any jitter: all of this is possible thanks to our Universal Drive Controller IP Core, which supports DC, BLDC and 2 and 3-phase stepper motors.

PCI Express to Wishbone Bridge

Feb 14, 2017

We were asked to migrate the SPI slave interfaces of an existing FPGA design to PCIe interfaces, providing massively more bandwidth, while maintaining the internal FPGA Wishbone communication infrastructure and as much as possible of the embedded software controlling the SPI masters. To do this, we replaced the SPI slave interfaces with a multi-function PCIe endpoint with attached Wishbone masters, and mapped the new FPGA design to an Altera Cyclone V GX device.

On the embedded software side, the low-level SPI driver was replaced by a custom PCIe driver, emulating the same behavior. This development provided our customer with a smooth transition to the latest FPGA technology, and delivers the performance required for next-generation systems.
