Offers Maker-Focused Processor-Plus-FPGA Performance
August 23, 2017 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the Arty Z7 development board from Digilent. The Arty Z7 helps designers build a range of motor control and embedded vision systems on a ready-to-use development platform with Arduino Uno- and Digilent chipKIT-compatible headers, Digilent Pmod connectors, and USB and HDMI ports.
The Digilent Arty Z7 development board, available from Mouser Electronics, is designed around the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable system-on-chip (AP SoC), which integrates a dual-core 650 MHz ARM® Cortex®-A9 processor with Xilinx’s 7-series field programmable gate array (FPGA) logic to offer to a powerful processor with a unique set of software-defined peripherals and controllers.
The Arty Z7 features a 1 Msps analog-to-digital converter (ADC), DDR3 memory controller with eight direct-memory access (DMA) channels, high-bandwidth peripheral controllers via 1-gigabit Ethernet, a USB 2.0, and a serial/digital input/output (SDIO). Low-bandwidth peripheral controllers are also available for SPI, UART, CAN, and I2C protocols.
The board ships with 512 Mbytes of DDR3 memory with a 16-bit bus operating at 1050 Mbits per second and 16 Mbytes of Quad-SPI flash memory with factory-programmed 48-bit globally unique EUI-48/64 identifier. The board also offers 53,200 lookup tables, 106,400 flip-flops, 630 Kbytes of block RAM, four clock management tiles, and 49 inputs/outputs (I/Os). The processor is programmable from JTAG, Quad-SPI flash, and microSD card.
