Enclustra’s Andromeda XZU90 is the first module from the brand new Andromeda product family. It is modular and optimised for high-end applications. It supports up to 6 Samtec ADM6-60 high-speed connectors with up to 686 user I/Os.

The Andromeda XZU90 system-on-chip (SoC) module (SOM) from Enclustra combines high-end Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC-series devices with fast DDR4 ECC SDRAM, eMMC flash, dual parallel quad SPI flash, dual Gigabit Ethernet PHY, USB 3.0 and thus forms a complete and powerful embedded processing system. This module is suitable for high-speed applications due to the high number of transceivers and the superior module connector performance.

Thanks to its built-in Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ZU17EG or ZU19EG device, the Andromeda XZU90 is the optimal solution for the most demanding applications. The SOM integrates up to 8 GByte of fast DDR4 SDRAM with Error Correction Code (ECC), a 16 GByte eMMC flash and a dual 64 MByte quad SPI flash. For communication, it offers up to five times PCIe Gen3 x16, Gigabit Ethernet PHY and USB 3.0 thanks to the 76 MGTs with up to 25 Gbit/sec – all on a tiny footprint of just 80x64mm.

The Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC is manufactured in a 16nm FinFET+ process and has 6 ARM cores: four 64 bit ARM Cortex-A53 with a clock frequency of up to 1333 MHz, and a 533 MHz 32 bit ARM dual-core Cortex-R5. The processors are supported by a Mali-400MP2 GPU.

Reference design and Linux at the push of a button

Enclustra offers broad design-in support for their products and a comprehensive ecosystem for the Andromeda XZU90, offering all required hardware, software, and support materials. Detailed documentation and reference designs make it easy to get started. A user manual, user schematics, a 3D-model, PCB footprints and differential I/O length tables are all provided.

To build a Board Support Package (BSP) based on PetaLinux, Enclustra offers extensive guidance. Also, the necessary adjustments for the different boot modes (QSPI, eMMC, SD Card) are explained in detail.
