Mercury XU5 Multiple Interface Module

Oct. 24, 2018
Enclustra's module achieves memory bandwidths of up to 24 GByte/sec.

Based on the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC, the Mercury XU5 SoC module features 6 ARM cores, a Mali 400MP2 GPU, up to 10 GByte of extremely fast DDR4 SDRAM, numerous standard interfaces, 178 user I/Os, and up to 256,000 LUT4 equivalents. Thanks to two independent storage channels it achieves memory bandwidths of up to 24 GByte/sec.


The module features more direct interfaces to the FPGA fabric, in addition to a Gigabit Ethernet connection as well as up to 2 GByte DDR4 SDRAM. The module has up to 8 GByte DDR4 ECC SDRAM connected directly to the processing system, 16 GByte eMMC flash memory as well as various standard interfaces, such as Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, a display port, SATA and SGMII. Both the processing system and the FPGA matrix boast four PCIe Gen2/3 connections.


It is manufactured in a 16 nm FinFET+ process and comes equipped with 6 ARM cores—four 64-bit ARM CortexTM- A53 with a clock rate of up to 1,333 MHz as well as a 600 MHz fast 32-bit ARM dual-core CortexTM-R5. The processors are supported by a MaliTM 400MP2 GPU and an H.264/H.265 video codec (EV variants).
