SDSoC Support


The Mars ZX3 System-on-Module (SOM) / system-on-chip (SoC) module combines Xilinx's Zynq-7020 All Programmable SoC device with fast DDR3 SDRAM, NAND flash, 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 Mars ZX3 SoC module reduces development effort, redesign risk and improves time-to-market for your embedded system.



  • Built around Xilinx's Zynq-7020 All Programmable SoC
  • Combines the flexibility of a CPU system with the parallel processing power and real-time capabilities of an FPGA system
  • Supports analog differential inputs
  • Available in industrial temperature range
  • Supports USB 2.0, CAN and Gigabit Ethernet
  • Linux BSP and tool chain available
  • Powerful and compact FPGA board

Mars Heat Sink

Mars Heatsink (Top)

The Mars heat sink is an optimal solution to cool the Mars ZX3 – it's low profile (less than 7 mm tall) and covers the whole module surface. It comes with a gap pad for the FPGA and four screws to attach it to the module PCB. With additional user configured gap pads, it is possible to cool other components on board as well.
