Mercury+ AA1

Altera® 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 Altera'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 Altera 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


  • A complete and powerful embedded processing system in a compact, space-saving form factor
  • Large, high-bandwidth memory, with up to 4 GByte of DDR4 ECC SDRAM
  • High-bandwidth data transfer; PCIe® Gen3 x8 interface, and a high number of available LVDS pairs provide high-speed data I/O at low integration cost
  • Lowest power consumption due to the high-efficiency DC/DC converters
  • Support for Linux, eCos and Android embedded operating systems


  • Altera Arria® 10 ARM® Processor-based SoC FPGA
    • ARM® dual-core Cortex™-A9 (1.2 GHz)
    • Altera Arria 10 20 nm FPGA fabric
  • Small form factor (74 × 54 mm)
  • 286 user I/Os
    • 18 ARM peripheral I/Os (SPI, SDIO, CAN, I2C, UART)
    • 212 FPGA I/Os (single-ended, differential or analog)
  • 12 MGTs (Up to 10.3125 Gbps)
  • Up to 4 GByte DDR4 ECC SDRAM
  • 16 GByte eMMC flash
  • 64 MByte quad SPI flash
  • PCIe® Gen3 x8
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • USB 3.0 device
  • USB 2.0 host/device
  • 5 to 15 V supply voltage
