Mercury+ XU1 SoC Module is a Heavy Hitter

March 12, 2018
Enclustra's module is available in both commercial and industrial temperature ranges and needs just a single 5-15 V supply for operation.

Mercury+ XU1 is the fastest SoC module based on the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC. It accommodates 6 ARM cores, a Mali 400MP2 GPU, up to 4 GB of extremely fast DDR4 ECC SDRAM, numerous standard interfaces, 294 user I/Os, and up to 747,000 LUT4 equivalents.


With the Mercury+ XU1, FPGA specialists Enclustra offer a quick and easy way into the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ecosystem. In addition to up to 747,000 systems logic cells across 6 ARM processors, the Mercury+ XU1 also possesses a GPU and up to 294 user I/Os. Built-in interfaces include two Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0, sixteen MGTs (with speeds of up to 12.5 Gbps), as well as PCIe Gen2 x4. With up to 4 GB of DDR4 SDRAM with bandwidths of 19.2 GByte/s and ECC, as well as 16 GB eMMC flash memory, the Mercury+ XU1 is supremely equipped to handle even the heaviest of resource-hogging applications, despite having a footprint of just 74 × 54 mm.


The module is available in both commercial and industrial temperature ranges and needs just a single 5 to 15V supply for operation. Enclustra offers broad design in support for their products. With the Mercury+ PE1-300 or Mercury+ PE1-400 baseboards, the Mercury+ XU1 can be a powerful development and prototyping platform.


Further expansion options are provided by the LPC/HPC FMC connectors on the PE1 base board, compatible with a huge range of plug-in cards from various manufacturers - ADCs, DACs, motor control cards and RF links are just a small selection of possibilities.


Enclustra also offers a comprehensive ecosystem for the XU1, offering all required hardware, software, and support materials. The Mercury+ PE1 baseboard is a complete development platform; detailed documentation and reference designs make it easy to get started, in addition to the user manual, schema, a 3D model, PCB footprint, and differential I/O length tables.
