1: This model supports only half of the DDR4 bandwidth on the PS side (32-bit interface instead of 64-bit).
2: G1 model offered for migration purposes or for cases where the end application does not require GTR transceivers, but instead more regular I/Os. It can be used when porting an existing design from Mercury ZX1 or ZX5 to Mercury XU5 SoC module. Please refer to the user manual for details on assembly options and migration guidelines. This model was referred to as “X1” model in previous user manual versions.

Large Heat Dissipation

High performance devices like the AMD 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
