Linux-ready “PicoZed” COMs Has Been Released By Avnet!

ITVoice News: An array of four Linux-ready “PicoZed” COMs has been released by Avnet. These are based on Xilinx’s Zynq-7000 SoCs and they integrate dual ARM Cortex-A9 cores along with FPGAs. Avnet has delivered a true COM without the real-world Ethernet and USB ports. The basic design supports Linux on a variety of Xilinx Zynq-7000 system-on-chips.

4DE_avnet_picozed_7030_angleAvnet has spun off different versions of the MicroZed for several Zynq-7000 models. But this PicoZed is a single board which offers pin compatibility with a greater range of Zynq SoC variants. PicoZed is offered in versions which are based on Zynq-7010, -7015, -7020, and -7030 SoCs. PicoZed aims industrial control, embedded vision, test and measurement, motor control, and software-defined radio applications.

PicoZed offers functions like memory, configuration, Ethernet, USB, clocks and power. Most of the PicoZed’s programmable logic I/O is expressed via a Low-Pin Count (LPC) FMC connector. Zynq models also differ in the tightly linked FPGA subsystem and it offers 53,200 look-up tables (LUTs). All four versions provide access to over 100 user I/O pins through three I/O connectors on the rear of the module for connecting Ethernet, USB, JTAG, power and other control signals.

According to Avnet, the four serial transceivers on the Zynq-7015 and -7030 based PicoZeds are allocated to a PCI-Express x1 (Gen2) card edge interface, as well as the FMC connector, an SFP+ cage, and a general purpose SMA interface. The PicoZed is available now, with pricing per hundred pieces for the Zynq-7010, -7015, -7020, and -7030 models at $179, $299, $229, and $399, respectively.
