Q2 – 2020

Dear Customer,

This edition of the quarterly newsletter will highlight our Achilles Arria® 10 System-on-Module.
Launched in 2016, this popular module combines the flexibility and ease of programming of a CPU with the configurability and parallel processing power of an FPGA.
With no less than 1500 pieces sold to 50 different customers, Achilles has already proven its high value in the industrial world.

Sold as a Development Kit with the Starter Carrier board, or with a PCIe carrier board sold separately, Achilles will address all your issues and application requirements.  The Module is also available for purchase separately for production systems.

A new “Golden System Reference Design” is now available for Achilles on the Linux community website.  The Reference Design demonstrates several features of the Arria 10 SoC FPGA and Module:

  • Quartus Prime Pro FPGA reference design with HPS system configuring the available hardware peripherals on Achilles SoM and Starter carrier board
  • Generation of latest available HPS software components using Yocto Project build flow
  • FPGA configuration from HPS
  • Application of devicetree overlay
  • USB gadget support

Happy reading !

Which applications will fit my Achilles Arria® 10 SoC Module ?

This use case above shows an Industrial Printer requiring support for multiple I/O protocols coming from the I/O Carrier Board. The Achilles module was able to support this due to the high I/O count available on both of the top FMC connectors, including support for both single-ended and differential standards.

The use case above shows multiple ADC & DAC data converters connected to Achilles via FMC Connectors for an Spectrometer application.  The integrated Ethernet interface supports connection to a Front End Data Server, with additional FPGA and HPS I/O available for digital connectivity to Ethernet​.

The examples above are just a few amongst others. The Achilles module can fit numerous industrial applications due to its small module size and powerful FPGA processing capabilities.

Our sales team is available to help you develop your own project with your respective application.
