System-on-Chip Modules

Mars

The Mars family of system-on-chip (SoC) modules features the potent combination of powerful, flexible embedded processors with configurable FPGA logic, all in the industry-standard SO-DIMM form factor. These features, alongside high memory capacity and diverse I/O interfacing options, present the possibility to develop powerful on-board processing systems.

Mercury

The Mercury family of system-on-chip (SoC) modules combines the flexibility of an on-board ARM®; processor with the raw power of FPGA logic, alongside a high number of user I/Os for high-performance applications. Modules marked as Mercury+ have an additional third connector, presenting even more available I/Os for additional interfacing with the FPGA or ARM CPU.
