Mercury+ AA1

Intel® Arria® 10 SoC Module

Mercury+ AA1 SoC Module Mercury+ AA1 SoC Module (front)
Mercury+ AA1 SoC Module (back)


The Mercury+ AA1 system-on-chip (SoC) module combines Intel's Arria 10 ARM Processor-based SoC FPGA with fast DDR4 ECC SDRAM, eMMC flash, quad SPI flash, Gigabit Ethernet PHY and an RTC and thus forms a high-performance embedded processing solution, combining the flexibility of a CPU system with the raw, real-time parallel processing power of an FPGA.



  • Built around the Intel Arria® 10 ARM® Processor-based SoC FPGA
  • Offers USB 3.0, PCIe® Gen3 x8 and Gigabit Ethernet interface
  • DDR4 SDRAM with Error Correction Code (ECC)
  • 9.6 GByte/s memory bandwith
  • Available in industrial-grade temperature range
  • Smaller than a credit card
  • Linux BSP and tool chain available
  • Powerful and compact FPGA board

Mercury Heat Sink

enclustra mercury heat sink hs3

Large Heat Dissipation

High performance devices like the Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC or Intel Arria 10 need cooling in most applications: always make sure the FPGA/SoC is adequately cooled.

The Mercury Heat Sink is an optimal cooling solution for Mercury and Mercury+ FPGA and SoC modules – it is low-profile and covers the whole module surface1.

The Mercury heatsink is provided as part of a heatsink accessory package including:

  • Heatsink body
  • Mounting material
  • Standard fan
  • Gap pad set
