Introducing a SOC board:MYC-C7Z020-4E1D-776-I

A recent trend has been to take the architectural approach a step further by combining the logic blocks and interconnects of traditional FPGAs with embedded microprocessors and related peripherals to form a complete “system on a programmable chip”. So today let’s talk about MYC-C7Z020-4E1D-776-I which is SOC board.

The MYC-C7Z010/20 CPU Module is a Linux-ready ZYNQ-based SOM (System on Module) available for either the XC7Z010 or XC7Z020 version. It integrates Xilinx’s Dual Cortex-A9 + FPGA All Programmable SoC device, 1GB DDR3 SDRAM, 4GB eMMC, 32MB quad SPI Flash, a Gigabit Ethernet PHY, a USB PHY and external watchdog. Two 0.8mm pitch 140-pin board-to-board connectors provide a large number of I/O signals for ARM peripherals and FPGA I/Os to enable your base board extension.

The MYC-C7Z010/20 CPU Module is the core board of MYD-C7Z010/20 development board which is an excellent platform for evaluation and prototype based on MYIR’s MYC-C7Z010/20 CPU module. It takes full features of the Zynq-7010 and 7020 SoC and has extended rich peripherals to the base board including four USB Host ports, RS232 serial port, Gigabit Ethernet, CAN, LCD and HDMI. It has one XADC header to allow you take advantage of Xilinx XADC; it has three PMoD headers to meet your I/O needs with PMoDs (only for 7020); it also has a low-pin count FMC connector to allow various FMC cards for custom I/O options. Typical applications are Industrial Automation, Test & measurement, Medical Equipment, Intelligent Video Surveillance, Aerospace and military, etc.
