Zynq XC7Z007S / XC7Z010 / XC7Z020 - BORA Lite


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.

Main Features

  • Unmatched performance thanks to single/dual ARM Cortex-A9@ up to 800MHz
  • All memories you need: on-board NOR and NAND Flash
  • 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: CAN, USB, Ethernet GB and native 3.3V I/O
  • Easy to USE thanks to SODIMM form factor
  • Accurate timing application thanks to on-board 5ppm RTC
