Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC PCIe card

Expected to release in the first week of October 2018, this is the 2nd revision of our Successful SE120 board with the following updates as requested by our customer base. Please see updated block diagram on the “additional Images” tab.

  1. SD card changed to eMMC card
  2. One SATA connector is deleted
  3. One USB 3.0 connector is added
  4. Added hole / fan for the FMC cooling
  5. 3 pin connector for the main FAN is moved closer to Zynq
  6. On  USB_RST#,  RGMII_RST# signals moved to PL part, added pull-up and pull-down resistors
  7. Added FMC HB bank connections to offer 80LVDS pairs
  8. Updated USB – JTAG schematic according to Digilent design document
  9. USB-UART schematic changed to support 2 PS UARTs interfaces
  10. USB_HUB schematic changed to setup on power up without set up via I2C
  11. Straight  LSHM connector changed to right angle LSHM-130-01-F-RH-A-N-K-TR
  12. Added some DNP components for PCIe HOST support
  13. Added 0.9V power for video codec
  14. Updated battery connector to 74AVC4T245BQ (from vertical to horizontal)
  15. Changed some capacitors for better power stability
  16. All user interface connectors and reset buttons removed on the edge of the board
  17. The distance between FMC connector and Zynq chip was increased for optimized heatsink placement


SE120 is based on Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ family. Depending on the choice of Zynq device (XCZU7EV / XCZU7EG/ XCZU11EG / XCZU7CG in  C1156 package) it can be used for video decoding/encoding,  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 Zynq that can be used on this board and their available resources are shown below.

Summary of devices and available resources:
