Solar Express 200 (SE200) is an x8 Gen3 PCIe carrier board with two SoM-PF m(System on Module) sites. The 2 SoMs that can be supported on this carrier are SoM-PF1 and PF2 which are based on MPF500-1FCG1152 and MPF300T-1FCG784E respectively. Site 1 is typically designed for SoM-PF1 but if SoM-PF2 is plugged into that position then only PCIe, Firefly, SFP+, and 4 lanes of high-speed serial links for the FMC interface will be available. The board is designed for development purposes and plugs into a PC’s PCIe slot and is powered by a PCIe interface. An FMC slot, SFP+ module, x2 Samtec FireFly, USB, and other peripherals are available on the carrier card.
SE125 is a low profile, 8 lanes PCIe card powered by the Xilinx Zynq Utrascale+ MPSOC (XCZU7EV-2FFVC1156E. Designed for Data Center application for simultaneous 4K video encode/decode4K video streaming . The onboard Zynq supports integrated H.265 hardware encoders and decoders.
Using Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family, SE120 is an x8, Gen4 PCIe board. It can be assembled with the XCZU7EV-2FFVC1156E /XC ZU7EG/ XCZU11EG/ or ZU7CG. Depending on the choice of device it can be used for applications in HPC, digital communication, image processing, and AR/VR. When using a 7EV device the video encoder/decoder unit (VCU) can be used for video streaming applications.
SE120 utilizes the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family in C1156 package. SE120 is a Gen4 x8 PCIe board. It can be assembled with the XCZU7EV-2FFVC1156E /XC ZU7EG/ XCZU11EG/ or ZU7CG. Depending on the choice of FPGA it can be used for applications in HPC, digital communication, image processing, and AR/VR. By cascading multiple SE120s multiprocessing systems can be easily created.
SE200 is a x8 Gen3 PCIe carrier card for housing 2 PolarFire FPGA SoM modules from Sundance DSP. PolarFire is the latest FPGA from Microsemi with many advanced features like low power, high security and powerful embedded hard IP cores including RISC processor and JSD204B, and many more.
