Linux-driven COM/carrier offers mid-range Zynq

Nov 9, 2016 — by Eric Brown — 668 views

MYIR has launched a COM that runs Linux on a Zynq-7015 ARM/FPGA SoC, and mounts on a carrier with USB, GbE, HDMI, PMOD, and FMC I/O.

MYIR’s MYC-C7Z015 computer-on-module and MYD-C7Z015 development board are variations on the MYC-C7Z010/20 COM with accompanying MYD-C7Z010/20 baseboard. Instead of offering a Xilinx Zynq-7010 or -7020 SoC, the MYC-C7Z015 provides the Zynq-7015, which has the same dual 667MHz to 866MHz Cortex-A9 subsystem, but offers an Artik 7 FPGA variant that falls in between the -7010 and -7020. The Zynq-7015 features 74k logic cells, 160 DSP slices, 380KB block RAM, and four 6.25Gbps transceivers.

Despite having otherwise identical specs and the same 75 x 55mm dimensions, the MYC-C7Z015 has a redesigned layout compared to the MYC-C7Z010/20. It similarly ships with an open source Linux 3.15.0 distribution. As usual with MYIR, the module and baseboard are provided with full specifications.

The MYC-C7Z015 is once again loaded with 1GB of DDR3 SDRAM, 4GB eMMC flash, and 16MB or 32MB QSPI flash. The module expresses its I/O via dual 140-pin connectors. It supplies Gigabit Ethernet and USB 2.0 OTG PHYs, as well as SDIO, 16-channel ADC, and a pair each of serial, CAN, I2C, and SPI interfaces. The 5V/0.5A COM supports a 0 to 70°C temperature range, and offers a dedicated watchdog timer chip.

The MYD-C7Z015 development board appears to be identical to the earlier MYD-C7Z010/20 except for the addition of an SFP optical transceiver module and a PCIe interface with two lanes. The board includes a GbE port, four USB 2.0 host ports, and an RS232 debug port.

The MYD-C7Z015 is further equipped with CAN and JTAG interfaces as well as FPGA connectors like LPFMC, XADC, and three PMODs. Other features include a watchdog, RTC, and various buttons and jumpers.

 
Further information

The MYC-C7Z015 COM is available for $189, which is $50 more than the more FPGA-capable Zynq-7020 version of the MYC-C7Z010/20. The MYD-C7Z015 development board is available for $369 including the MYC-C7Z015 module, which is $40 more than the -7020 equipped MYD-C7Z010/20. The boards are available now for order, with shipments due by the end of November. More information may be found on the MYC-C7Z015 product page.

    Anyone know if MYIR is still using a “evaluation period” HDMI soft-ip, or if they have fixed that issue?
