Mercury XU5

Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+ SoC Module

Mercury XU5 SoC Module (Front)


This product is currently in development - for more detailed information on availability, feel free to get in touch.


The Mercury XU5 system-on-chip (SoC) module combines Xilinx's Zynq UltraScale+™ MPSoC-series device with fast DDR4 ECC SDRAM, eMMC flash, quad SPI flash, dual Gigabit Ethernet PHY, dual USB 3.0 and an RTC and thus forms a complete and powerful embedded processing system.


  • Built around Xilinx's Zynq Ultrascale+™ MPSoC
  • Two separate memory channels on PS (DDR4 ECC SDRAM) and PL (DDR4 SDRAM)
  • Up to 24 GByte/sec memory bandwidth
  • Offers PCIe® Gen3 x4, PCIe Gen2 x4, 2x USB 3.0 and 2x Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
  • Available in industrial temperature range
  • Two 168-pin Hirose FX10 connectors with 178 user I/Os


  • A complete and powerful embedded processing system in a compact, space-saving form factor
  • Large, high-bandwidth memory, with up to 8 GByte of DDR4 ECC SDRAM (PS) and up to 2 GByte of DDR4 RAM (PL)
  • High-bandwidth data transfer; PCIe® Gen3 x4, PCIe Gen2 x4 interfaces, and USB 3.0
  • Lowest power consumption due to the high-efficiency DC/DC converters
  • Support for Linux embedded operating system
