Mercury + even more I/Os = Mercury+ SA2

Jun 15, 2015

Enclustra Mercury SA2 Altera Cyclone V SoC module

The new Mercury+ SA2 is for when you really need a lot of I/Os. It's our first module in the new Mercury+ form-factor, which adds a third 168-pin Hirose FX10 connector to the standard two found on Mercury modules. This doesn't come at the cost of increased size, though - the module is still a petite 74 × 54 mm. In terms of on-board computing power, the SA2 is equipped with an Altera® Cyclone® V SoC, with a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor and FPGA fabric; to interface with these there are 258 I/Os, as well as 9 MGTs. Up to 2 GBytes of DDR3L SDRAM, 64 MBytes of quad SPI flash cater for memory needs, while interfaces on offer are PCIe® Gen1/Gen2 ×4, Gigabit Ethernet, 2 × Fast Ethernet, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. In short: there's a lot on there.

Mercury Starter Base Board discontinued

May 11, 2015

The Mercury Starter base board product line is being discontinued; seeing as it doesn’t support all features of the newest Mercury SoC modules (namely, booting from SD card and UART), the Mercury Starter has been superceded by the Mercury PE1, which provides a more flexible base for Mercury systems, as well as offering many other features in itself.

More information can be found in the Product Change Notification. If you have any queries, don't hesitate to get in touch.
