New year, new announcements
We’re ready to get our teeth stuck into 2017, and we hope you are too. To get the ball rolling, we’re happy to announce that the development of the Mars MA3, our first Altera Cyclone V SoC module in the compact Mars form factor, is now underway.
The Mars MA3 system-on-chip (SoC) module combines Altera's Cyclone V SoC device with fast DDR3L SDRAM, 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 icing on the cake: we offer a comprehensive design-in support and Linux board support package in the form of the Enclustra build environment. Nice.
The show goes on
Last week we were part of the ESC conference in San Jose; it was our final exhibition of 11 this year in which we presented our modules. Phew! They’ve been fun, but we’re also pleased that the Christmas break is right around the corner. It has been a demanding year of exhibiting, but a successful one, and we’ve met a lot of interesting people.
At ESC we showcased our new Mercury+ AA1 module, based on the Altera Arria 10 SoC, and the Mercury+ XU1, which is currently available with a Xilinx UltraScale+ ZU9EG ES2 engineering sample. The XU1 is a powerful beast, with up to 600,000 system logic cells, 6 ARM cores and an integrated Mali-400 MP2 graphics accelerator.
Xilinx was amongst the many visitors who stopped by at our stand at ESC - check out their blog and read about the XU1: Enclustra’s 74x54mm Mercury+ XU1 SOM is only a bit larger than its on-board Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC
Say hello to our first Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ module
Our very first Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC module, the Mercury+ XU1, has made its much-anticipated public debut! It took its bow as part of a live-streaming 4K camera at the Vision Fair in Stuttgart, developed together with our partner AntMicro.
The XU1 is truly a beast; it's our most powerful SoC module, and offers a set of peripherals and interfaces that could make an engineer think Christmas has come early. In addition to the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, the module has fast DDR4 ECC SDRAM, eMMC flash, quad SPI flash, dual Gigabit Ethernet PHY, dual USB 3.0 and a real-time clock. Not convinced, even after all that? Click through for more details.
Our first Mercury+ AA1 modules are here
We’d like to proudly announce that our first Mercury+ AA1 modules have arrived. It’s our first module based on Altera's Arria 10 ARM processor-based SoC FPGA; it combines a powerful and space-saving embedded processing system with up to 8 GByte of high-bandwidth DDR4 ECC SDRAM memory and many more impressive goodies.
The AA1 is also our second SoC module in the new Mercury+ form-factor, which adds a third 168-pin Hirose FX10 connector to the standard two found on Mercury modules. Not to worry though: the addition doesn't come at the cost of increased size; the module is still smaller than a credit card, measuring in at 74 × 54 mm.
Get ready for the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ module
Our very first Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ SoC module, the Mercury+ XU1, just went into production and we're very excited to get our hands on it. The module combines Xilinx's Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC-series device with fast DDR4 ECC SDRAM, eMMC flash, quad SPI flash, dual Gigabit Ethernet PHY, dual USB 3.0, an RTC and 294 user I/Os in a package smaller than a credit card (74 × 54 mm).
If you'd like to get a headstart on a design based around the XU1, the user manual and reference design are good to go; just drop us a line to obtain them.
