BORA Xpress SOM - Zynq 7000

Processor: Xilinx "Zynq" XC7Z015 / XC7Z030

BORA Xpress is the top-class Dual Cortex-A9 + FPGA CPU module by DAVE Embedded Systems, based on the recent Xilinx "Zynq" XC7Z015 / XC7Z030 application processor.

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

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

Main Features

  • Unmatched performance thanks to Dual ARM Cortex-A9 @ up to 1GHz
  • SERDES: Xpress lanes up to 6.25 Gbps
  • All memories you need: on-board NOR and NAND Flash
  • Enabling smarter system thanks to Artix-7 or Kintex-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
  • Accurate timing application thanks to on-board 5ppm RTC
  • Pin2Pin Compatibility with BORA SOM based on Zynq XC7Z010/XC7Z020

Thanks to BORA Xpress, customers are going to save time and resources by using a compact solution that includes both a CPU and an FPGA, avoiding complexities on the carrier PCB.

The use of this processor enables extensive system-level differentiation of new applications in many industry fields, where high-perfomance and extremely compact form factor (85mm x 50mm) are key factors. Smarter system designs are made possible, following the trends in functionalities and interfaces of the new, state-of-the-art embedded products

BORA Xpress enables designers to create rugged products suitable for harsh mechanical and thermal environments, allowing for the development of the most advanced and robust products. Thanks to the tight integration between the ARM-based processing system and the on-chip programmable logic, designers are free to add virtually any peripheral or create custom accelerators that extend system performance and better match specific application requirements.

BORA Xpress is suitable for high-end applications such as medical instrumentation, advanced communication systems, critical real-time operations and safety applications.
