UltraZed PCIe Carrier Card

by: Avnet

The UltraZed PCIe Carrier Card supports the UltraZed-EG™ System-on-Module (SOM), providing easy access to the full 180 user I/O, 26 PS MIO, and 4 PS GTR transceivers available from the UltraZed-EG SOM via three Micro Headers. Two 140-pin Micro Headers on the carrier card mate with the UltraZed-EG SOM, connecting 180 of the UltraZed-EG Programmable Logic (PL) I/O to 2 Digilent Pmod™ compatible interfaces, FMC LPC slot, LVDS Touch Panel interface, push button switches, DIP switches, LEDs, Xilinx SYSMON, and clock oscillator.

The UltraZed PCIe Carrier Card also uses a 100-pin Micro Header to gain access to the UltraZed-EG SOM Processing System (PS) MIO and GTR transceiver pins as well as USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The UltraZed-EG SOM PS MIO and GTR pins are used on the PCIe Carrier Card to implement the microSD card, PMOD, USB 2.0/3.0, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA host, Display Port, PCIe Endpoint interface, dual USB-UART, user LED and switch, and MAC Address device interfaces.

The PCIe Carrier Card also provides several power rails to the UltraZed-EG SOM including the 12V main input voltage, user selectable bank voltages for the PL I/O (VCCOs), and the necessary voltages for the GTR transceivers. The PCIe Carrier Card is a great vehicle for validating the UltraZed-EG SOM and provides an excellent starting point for creating your own UltraZed-EG custom carrier card.
