Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+ MPSoC Module


The Mercury+ XU8 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 thus forms a complete and powerful embedded processing system.



  • Built around Xilinx's Zynq Ultrascale+™ MPSoC
  • Two independent memory channels for PS (DDR4 ECC SDRAM) and PL (DDR4 SDRAM)
  • Up to 28.8 GByte/sec memory bandwidth
  • Offers PCIe® Gen3 x16, PCIe Gen2 x4, 2x USB 3.0 and 2x Gigabit Ethernet interfaces
  • Available in industrial temperature range
  • Three 168-pin Hirose FX10 connectors with 236 user I/Os
  • Linux BSP and tool chain available


  • 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 4 GByte of DDR4 RAM (PL)
  • High-bandwidth data transfer; PCIe® Gen3 x16, PCIe Gen2 x4, USB 3.0, 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 embedded operating system


  • Xilinx® Zynq Ultrascale+™ MPSoC
    • ARM® quad-core Cortex™-A53 (CG variants: dual-core)
    • ARM dual-core Cortex™-R5

    • H.264 / H.265 Video Codec (only for EV variants)
    • 16nm FinFET+ FPGA fabric
  • Up to 8 GB DDR4 ECC SDRAM (PS)
  • Up to 4 GB DDR4 SDRAM (PL)
  • 64 MB QSPI flash
  • 16 GB eMMC flash
  • PCIe® Gen3 ×16 and PCIe Gen2 ×4
  • 20 × 6/12.5/15 Gbit/sec MGT
  • 2 × Gigabit Ethernet
  • 2 × USB 3.0
  • 2 × USB 2.0 (host & host/device)
  • Up to 504,000 LUT4-eq

Base BoardDescription
Mercury+ PE1 A feature-packed board with 3 different variants, compatible with all Mercury and Mercury+ modules.

Warning: Due to the pinout assignments (pin types and I/O voltage levels) on module connectors B and C, affecting the FMC interfaces, the compatibility of the Mercury+ XU8 SoC module to the Mercury+ PE1 base board is limited. It is recommended to check the FMC card pinout in detail with the Enclustra Mercury Master Pinout and with the module and base board schematics.
