Processor: Zynq XC7Z007S / XC7Z010 / XC7Z020
BORA Lite is the updated version of BORA SOM in a more compact and convenient form factor SODIMM DDR3 204pins. This new top-class Single/Dual Cortex-A9 + FPGA CPU module by DAVE Embedded Systems is based on the recent Xilinx Zynq XC7Z007S/XC7Z014S or XC7Z010/XC7Z020 application processor. Thanks to BORA Lite, 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. Additionally, thanks to SODIMM form factor this solution represent the cheapest way to integrate a Zynq SOC in an embedded design.
The use of this processor enables extensive system-level differentiation of new applications in many industry fields, where high-performance and extremely compact form facto 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 Lite, like its parent BORA offers great computational power, thanks to the rich set of peripherals, the Single/Dual Cortex-A9 and the Artix-7 FPGA together with a large set of high-speed I/Os (up to 5GHz).
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 Lite is designed and manufactured according to DAVE Embedded Systems LITE Line specifications, in order to guarantee premium quality and technical value for customers who require the best quality/price ratio.
BORA Lite is suitable mainly for medical and industrial applications such as medical devices, Industrial PLCs, IoT systems and any other APP where FPGAs are the best fit.

The BORA Lite SOM product is the updated version of BORA SOM and it is based on the Xilinx Zynq XC7Z007S/XC7Z014S or XC7Z010/XC7Z020 application processor. BORA Lite is compact solution that includes both a CPU and an FPGA, avoiding complexities on the carrier PCB and thanks to SODIMM form factor is the cheapest solution to integrate a Zynq SOC in an embedded design.
The Zynq™-7000 family is based on the Xilinx Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) architecture. These products integrate a feature-rich single/dual core ARM® Cortex™-A9 based processing system (PS) and 28 nm Xilinx programmable logic (PL) in a single device. The ARM Cortex-A9 CPUs are the heart of the PS and also include on-chip memory, external memory interfaces, and a rich set of peripheral connectivity interfaces.
The Zynq-7000 family offers the flexibility and scalability of an FPGA, while providing performance, power, and ease of use typically associated with ASIC and ASSPs. The range of devices in the Zynq-7000 AP SoC family enables designers to target cost-sensitive as well as high-performance applications from a single platform using industry-standard tools. While each device in the Zynq-7000 family contains the same PS, the PL and I/O resources vary between the devices.

Yes. The PCB version is copper printed on PCB itself and the serial number is printed on a white label (please see here for further information). Also, a ConfigID is used by software running on the board for the identification of the product model/hardware configuration.

Here you can find the connectors and pinout description of the BORA Lite SOM.
Implementing correct power-up sequence for Zynq-based system is not a trivial task because several power rails are involved. BORA Lite SOM simplifies this task by embedding all the needed circuitry. Here you can find a simplified block diagram of PSU/voltage monitoring circuitry.
The recommended power-up sequence is:
For further information, see this page.
Here you can find a block diagram of reset scheme and voltage monitoring.
Here you can find information about the Programmable Logic (PL) initialization signals: PROGRAM_B, INIT_B, and DONE.
The boot process begins at Power On Reset (POR) where the hardware reset logic forces the ARM core to begin execution starting from the on-chip boot ROM. The boot process is multi-stage and minimally includes the Boot ROM and the first-stage boot loader (FSBL). The Zynq-7000 AP SoC includes a factory-programmed Boot ROM that is not useraccessible.
The boot ROM:
After a system reset, the system automatically sequences to initialize the system and process the first stage boot loader from the selected external boot device. The process enables the user to configure the AP SoC platform as needed, including the PS and the PL. Optionally, the JTAG interface can be enabled to give the design engineer access to the PS and the PL for test and debug purposes.
For further information about BORA Lite SOM boot options, please check out more by clicking here.
JTAG signals are routed to a dedicated connector (J2) on the BORA Lite PCB. The connector is placed on the top side of the PCB, at the upper-right corner.
Here you can find the table that reports the connector’s pinout.
For further information on how to use the JTAG interface, please contact the Technical Support Team.
Here you can find Axel ULite SOM’s maximum ratings, recommended ratings and power consumption.
Providing maximum power consumption of a system-on-module (SOM for short) is virtually impossible because it is extremely hard to define the worst case. This is even more true in case of BORA Lite, where this is affected by the software running on Processing System (PS) side and the Programmable Logic (PL) configuration.
For this reason, several real use cases have been considered rather than indicating a theoretical maximum power consumption value that would be useless for the majority of system integrators, because it likely would lead to an oversized power supply unit.
Here we describe in detail the testbeds that have been used.
