Trenz Electronic introduces TEI0187 micro module with Altera® Agilex 5 SoC FPGAs

Hüllhorst, Germany – March 1, 2024 – Trenz Electronic GmbH, a leading provider of FPGA & SoC modules and customized turnkey solutions, is proud to announce the launch of their first SoM featuring the powerful Agilex™ 5 SoC FPGA E-Series. This compact and versatile module is designed to empower engineers, researchers, and developers with cutting-edge application capabilities.

Key Features of the TEI0187 micro module:

The heart of the TEI0187 is the Agilex™ 5 SoC FPGA E-Series, which combines high performance with energy efficiency with up to 1.6x better performance per watt versus equivalent competitor devices*. With ist updated SoC subsystem, including a dual-core ARM Cortex-A76 and dual-core ARM Cortex-A55 with assorted peripherals, this FPGA enables rapid development and deployment of custom hardware accelerators. As the first FPGA infused with AI tensor block throughout the FPGA fabric, this device feature will allow customers to easily add AI inferencing functions to their embedded designs.

Compact Form Factor:
The TEI0187 micro module is small in size (52mm x 76mm) but big in functionality. Its compact dimensions are ideal for space-constrained designs, including edge computing, multi-axis robotics, and real-time industrial automation controls.

Interfaces and memory storages:
The module boasts a variety of interfaces and memory storages, including:

  • 2 x 1 GByte LPDDR4 SDRAM Memory IC

  • 256 MByte QSPI Flash

  • 1 x EEPROM Memory

  • 1 x Gigabit Ethernet PHY

  • 1 x USB2.0 PHY, Support USB3.1

  • 1 x SD Card

  • I/O Interfaces: 331/96/19 (IOs/DIFF. Pairs/HPS IOs)

  • Plug-on-module with 3x 240-pin Samtec AccelerateHD (ADM6) connectors for B2B connection.


Robust Design:
Trenz Electronic’s commitment to quality is evident in the TEI0187’s robust design. Rigorous testing ensures reliability and performance even in demanding environments and for industrial requirements.
