ARM® + FPGA heterogeneous processing in SMARC form factor with Xilinx® Zynq® Ultrascale+™ MPSoC

From February 25th to 27th 2020, embedded world exhibition & conference, the leading international tradeshow for embedded system technologies, is coming back to Nuremberg Exhibition Centre, Germany. SECO, an established company in the field of embedded electronics and a proud long-term exhibitor will showcase, at booth 1-330, its latest solutions to the tens of thousands of expected visitors.

Among the Arm-based products from SECO’s portfolio on display at embedded world, there will also be the SM-B71, a SMARC Rel. 2.0 compliant module with the Xilinx® Zynq® Ultrascale+™ MPSoC. It stands out among SMARC modules for its reduced integration complexity, its extreme flexibility, vast scalability and high-end performance. 

The SM-B71 is a unique solution, because of its blending of the Arm® and FPGA domains: this module is specifically designed to combine in a standard form factor Arm® and FPGA architectures, delivering flexible heterogeneous processing. All this thanks to Xilinx® Zynq® Ultrascale+™ CG/EG/EV MPSoCs in C784 package. The product is available in two versions, with up to four cores of Arm® Cortex®-A53 MPCore Application Processing Unit and a Dual-Core Arm® Cortex®-R5 Real-Time Processing Unit.     

As for graphics, the SM-B71 features an integrated Arm® Mali-400 MP2 GPU, with multi-core 2D/3D acceleration at 667MHz, support for OpenGL ES 1.1 / 2.0, OpenVG 1.0 / 1.1 as well as H.264/H.265 integrated video codec. Memory-wise, it mounts a soldered-down DDR4-24000 memory, up to 8 GB for Processing System Unit and up to 2 GB for Programmable Logic. Finally, this module is equipped with a variety of connectivity interfaces, including 4x PCI-e, 2x GbE, 2x CAN Bus, 2x SPI and 12x GPIOs.

Also available in industrial temperature range, the SM-B71 is suitable for use in demanding applications, such as automotive, avionics, biomedical & medical devices, industrial automation & control, IoT, robotics, telco, and visual computing.

The SM-B71 is compatible with the SMARC 2.0 DEV KIT, a cross platform philosophy Development Kit for SMARC Rel. 2.0 compliant modules. This complete package, containing all the necessary features to start developing on any SMARC Rel. 2.0. compliant module, is based on the CSM-B79 carrier board, which takes advantage of a large variety of networking interfaces and connectivity options (2x RJ-45 GbE connectors, USB sockets, PCI-e slot, 2x CAN ports, 4x GPIOs dedicated connector). 

SECO proudly welcomes embedded world 2020 visitors at stand 1-330, to discover its wide portfolio of products based on latest technologies, in addition to its innovative solutions for the Industrial IoT domain.
