Germany Based Trenz Electronics, has released a new FPGA development board, a 3 x 6.5cm SoC module with integrated Xilinx Zynq-7010 FPGA and a Pi Zero form factor, called the ZynqBerryZero.The Zyncberryzero
New ZynqBerryZero, nicknamed “little cousin” to older Zynqberry, is the latest addition to the company’s Raspberry Pi inspired FPGA lineup of boards. The ZynqBerryZero is actually raspberry pi-inspired like it’s an older cousin but can be used as an FPGA alternative to the Raspberry Pi Zero.
The ZynqberryZero packs it’s processing power punch with a Xilinx Zynq-7000 FPGA and a dual Arm Cortex-A9 MPCore, physically located in the middle of the FPGA’s programmable logic.
Some features of the ZynqberryZero include:
- Xilinx Zynq-7010 FPGA
- 512 MB DDR3L SDRAM
- 16 MB flash memory
- One microSD card slot
- Two microUSB connectors: 1x micro USB for JTAG/UART and 1x micro USB 2.0
- 40 pin HAT header
- Type C mini HDMI connector, and
- CSI-2 connector.
- Total GPIO: 26 (all provided by high-speed connectors)
- Dimensions: 3cm x 6.5 cm
- Operating temperature: Depends on customer design and cooling solution.
The ZynqberryZero module is currently available and sells for $149.74 (with shipping) or $129.09 (without shipping). Though the price looks like what could make the ZynqberryZero module quite the investment piece for projects, the module offers users quite a lot of features that make it totally worth it.
