Zynq XC7007S / 12S / 14S / XC7Z010 / XC7Z020 - BORA

Processor:  Xilinx  "Zynq" XC7007S / XC7012S / 7014S / XC7Z010 / XC7Z020

BORA is the top-class Single and Dual Cortex-A9 + FPGA CPU module by DAVE Embedded Systems, based on the recent Xilinx "Zynq" XC7007S / XC7012S / 7014S / XC7Z010 / XC7Z020 application processor.

BORA offers great computational power, thanks to the rich set of peripherals, the Dual Cortex-A9 and the Artix-7 FPGA inside.

BORA is designed in order to keep full compatibility with the Ultra Line CPU modules, to guarantee the premium quality and technical value of those customers that requires top performances.

Main Features

  • Unmatched performance thanks to Single/Dual ARM Cortex-A9 @800MHz
  • All memories you need: On board NOR and NAND Flash Memory
  • Enabling smarter system thanks to Artix-7 FPGA integrated on-chip
  • FPGA banks wide range PSU input from 1.2V to 3.3V
  • Highest security and reliability: Internal voltage monitoring and power good enable
  • Reduced carrier complexity: DUAL CAN, USB, Ethernet GB and native 3.3 V I/O
  • Easy to fit thanks to its small form factor
  • Precise timing application thanks to 5ppm RTC on board

XILINX ZYNQ SDSoC Development Environment for BORA SOM

The SDSoC™ development environment provides a greatly simplified ASSP-like C/C++ programming experience including an easy to use Eclipse IDE and a comprehensive design environment for heterogeneous Zynq® All Programmable SoC and MPSoC deployment. Complete with the industry’s first C/C++ full-system optimizing compiler, SDSoC delivers system level profiling, automated software acceleration in programmable logic, automated system connectivity generation, and libraries to speed programming. It also enables end user and 3rd party platform developers to rapidly define, integrate, and verify system level solutions and enable their end customers with a customized programming environment. DAVE Embedded Systems has integrated, in partnership with Xilinx, the SDSoC™ on BORA SOM based on Xilinx Zynq. Details about SDSoC development on BORA SOM:
