Overview

The Mars PM3 p-ITX board is equipped with a multitude of I/O interfaces for use with the Mars family of FPGA modules. The board is equally well suited for rapid prototyping and for building low-quantity FPGA systems without building custom hardware.

The board can also be used for production flashing of Mars modules or for educational purposes.

Build your FPGA system in minutes and start taking advantage of the powerful FPGA technology.

 

Highlights

  • Compatible with all Mars family FPGA and SoC modules
  • 300+MBytes/sec data transfer rate over USB 3.0
  • Suitable for prototype and series production
  • Small solution size (p-ITX, 100x72 mm)
  • Available in commercial and industrial temperature grade

Benefits

  • Compatible with a multitude of FMC board from different suppliers (data acquisition, motor control, display & camera interfaces, software defined radio)
  • Access of USB memory sticks, USB printers, USB Wi-Fi adapters etc. due to the USB host interface (SoC Modules only)
  • USB 3.0 communication for transfers up to 300+ MBytes/sec
  • High-Speed FPGA and flash programming over USB from a host PC
  • PCIe support using PCIe capable Mars modules and optional PCIe-HDMI adapter card
  • SoC boot from SD-card
  • Simple integration due to a single 12V supply voltage
 

Features

  • 200-pin SO-DIMM connector for Mars modules
  • FMC low pin count connector (72 I/Os) and optional 40-pin I/O header (26 I/Os, shared)
  • Gigabit Ethernet RJ45 connector
  • USB 3.0 Cypress EZ-USB® FX3™ device controller with Slave-FIFO interface
  • USB 2.0 host connector for SoC Modules
  • USB 2.0 UART device controller
  • SD-card connector
  • Mini HDMI connector for PCIe or LVDS applications
  • User EEPROM, system monitor, fan connector, buttons and LEDs
  • Internal and external 12V DC input connectors

Please note that the available features depend on the equipped Mars FPGA/SoC Module.
