New product release: Zynq PCIe FMC Carrier Evaluation Board for the Zynq-7000 XC7Z015 SoC

The evaluation board for the XC7Z015 All Programmable SoC (AP SoC) provides a hardware environment for developing and evaluating designs targeting the Zynq-7000 XC7Z015 -1FFG485C All Programmable SoC.

It provides features common to many embedded processing systems, including DDR3 component memory, one-lane PCI Express interface, GigaBit Ethernet PHY, general purpose I/O, and one USB-UART interface. Other features can be supported using VITA-57 FPGA mezzanine card (FMC) attached to the low pin count (LPC) FMC connectors.
