LeWiz’s Zynq™ FPGA family of development board designed specifically for easy customer usage and ready for deployment. Its SoC processors and FPGA resources are fully available for the user to use. Standard tools for programming and debugging are readily available. The popular Zynq FPGA is well-known by creative engineers and used in countless applications from embedded to data center, from commercial to military applications. Customers can code with C/C++, Verilog or VHDL and embed the code on the board. LeWiz also provides several complete, free application projects with software and hardware code to help customers getting started. The applications can function with or without an OS.
The card can be plugged into standard PC system x4 PCI-express slot and perform applications. It’s packed with 32Mbytes of dual-parallel flash memory for PCIe boot compatibility – load as much programs on it as you’d like. The FPGA can be ordered with Xilinx Zynq 030 or up to 045 size with speed up to -3 for easy timing closure. It has dual banks of DRAMs - 1 for processor system (PS) and another for programmable logic (PL). Easy JTAG programming with the well-known Digilent module via standard micro USB is available. The dual ARM cores run up to 1GHz rate. It has 3 gigabit Ethernet ports – 2 for PL side and 1 for PS Ethernet side. The PL GigE ports have ability for network by-pass in case of power or other failure in the network. Also available is a PS USB port as well as a high speed UART RS-232 port.
There are a lot of built-in for debug and expansion. Many LEDs, switches, user configurable headers are on the board. User expansion connectors, ARM debug connectors (including for in-circuit emulators) are standard on the board. With full programmability, users can upgrade firmware out in the field. This can be done either remotely or on site. Remote update ability enables users to modify the firmware out in the field where the device is not physically accessible. Expansion connector enables user to add additional functions or features.
