Avnet ZUBoard 1CG Development Board

by: Avnet

The ZUBoard 1CG provides the flexibility and versatility for engineers to experiment with and learn the AMD Zynq UltraScale+ ™ architecture. The affordable ZU1CG device features 81K programmable logic cells with a Dual-core Arm® Cortex®-A53 MPCore ™ and Dual-core Arm Cortex-R5F MPCore, as well as cache and on-chip memory. The board also features 1GB of ISSI LPDDR4 with non-volatile boot options in the 256Mb ISSI QSPI Flash or a microSD card slot. Microchip PHYs enable both 10/100/1000 Ethernet and USB 2.0 Host. A microUSB port provides on-board JTAG/UART access. Microchip oscillators and ECS crystals provide clocking to the ZU1 device, the on-chip real-time clock, JTAG, and communication interfaces. Power the board through USB-C with a Microchip controller and TDK μPOL™ power modules. A combination of slide switches, push buttons, mono- and RGBLEDs allow user interaction with the board. Both temperature and pressure sensors from STMicroelectronics add environmental data to the system. Additionally, all four ZU+ PS GTR transceivers, 18 PS MIO, and 69 PL I/Os are exposed through three Samtec connectors for high-speed expansion and one Click Board™ site. With a Vivado-enabled board definition file and PetaLinux BSP, you will be up and running in no time! Whether you want to explore bare metal, Linux, or Vitis AI accelerators, the ZUBoard 1CG will give you a base foundation to experiment.
