Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC PCIe card

SE120 is based on Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ family. Depending on the choice of FPGA (XCZU7EV / XCZU7EG/ XCZU11EG / XCZU7CG in  C1156 package) it can be used for digital communication or image processing and AR/VR applications. Sundance DSP supplies several frame grabber modules ranging from MIPI to Cameralink which can create a suitable platform for AR/VR solutions. The selection of FPGAs that can be used on this board and their available resources are shown below.

x  = 7 or 11 in the case of EG only

yy = CG, or EV or EG

Z = speed grade which by default is -2 but -1 can be selected.

t = temperature grade. Default is -E which is extended but -C (commercial) or -I (industrial) can be selected
