Quad-core processor and dual-core real-time processor offer high-performance, while the programmable logic is ideal for compute-intensive tasks.

WIXOM, Mich. – Acromag Inc. in Wixom, Mich., is introducing the XMC-ZU5EV Switch Mezzanine Card (XMC) module for real-time control, sensor fusion, data processing, and many other functions for defense, industrial or laboratory applications.

The XMC module comes with an AMD (Xilinx) Zynq UltraScale+ field-programmable gate array (FPGA) that combines an ARM-based processing system and FPGA logic in one chip.

These XMCs are for military, aerospace, transportation, manufacturing, and scientific research systems. The XMCs mount on VPX, VME, PCI Express, and other embedded computing carrier cards.

A quad-core processor and dual-core real-time processor deliver high-performance CPU capabilities, while the programmable logic is ideal for compute-intensive tasks.

Dedicated processing blocks are available for graphics and video processing. Additional resources include on-chip memory, external memory interfaces, and peripheral connectivity interfaces.

AMD's XCZU5EV multi-processor system-on-a-chip (MPSoC) hosts a quad-core ARM Cortex A53 and dual-core ARM Cortex R5 for heterogeneous computing and scalability. On-chip programmable logic has 256k cells, 1248 DSP slices, lots of RAM, and high-speed interfaces to outperform multi-chip FPGA solutions. An integrated Mali-400 GPU and video codec support offloading of multi-media processing.

Air-cooled versions for front I/O and conduction-cooled models for backplane I/O are available. Acromag's Engineering Design Kit (EDK) provides example designs that provides host access to the hardware I/O.
