SE216 PCIe carrier for Polarfire based SoM3 module

SE216 is a PCIe development board for SOM3 module . It is a simpler version of SE215 carrier and offers X1 Gen2 PCIe interface. It includes JTAG and UART, through a micro USB connector. The card provides Power GOOD and user LEDs for rapid debugging. A Low Pin Count (LPC) FMC site is also available.  USB AB, RJ45 and IO header pins are also on board.

A power jumper (B4 jumper) can change the Bank 4 IO between 1.8 and 2.5V.
