Zeus carrier board

Product overview

The Zeus Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC system-on-module carrier board is an evaluation board with Dual FMC+ connectors.

This evaluation Zynq UltraScale+ board was designed to complement the REFLEX CES Zeus Zynq UltraScale+ Module.

The target applications of our Zynq UltraScale+ board include software defined radio, radar systems, electronic warfare, and high-precision measurements.

The Zeus Zynq UltraScale+ board is fully compatible with the Zeus Zynq UltraScale+ Module.

Benefits & features

The Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC family is based on AMD UltraScale™ MPSoC architecture. In a single device, this product family integrates a 64-bit quad-core and dual-core Arm Cortex-R5-based processing system (PS) and AMD programmable logic (PL) UltraScale architecture.

REFLEX CES chose the Zynq ultrascale+ MPsoC FPGA for its unmatched performance, as well as for its lower system power architecture.

With an innovative ARM® + FPGA architecture, the Zynq Ultrascale+ FPGA is smarter and optimized for differentiation, analytics and control. Its large portfolio of SW and HW design tools and reference designs enables you to easily develop any project.

We developed our Zynq UltraScale+ boards with an MPSoC UltraScale+ FPGA, to provide customers with multiprocessing capabilities. The MPSoC (microprocessor system-on-chip) is an SoC including multiple microprocessors. MPSoCs also usually targets embedded applications.

REFLEX CES included numerous essential components for an embedded board, developed for this FPGA: DDR4 memories, connectors, BMC, and a software environment.
