64-Bit XMC ARM® Host CPU

The XMC-CPU/Zulu in XMC form factor comes with a XILINX Zynq Ultrascale+ CG multiprocessor system-on-chip with 1.3 GHz core frequency.
The local memory bus is 32 bits wide with an overall capacity of 1 Gbyte.
64 Mbyte SPI Flash for boot loader and 32 Kbit I²C EEPROM for U-Boot environment.
XMC-CPU/Zulu features a 16 Gbyte eMMC memory which is used for operating system, file system and application software.

XMC Interface

The XMC interface comes with quad-lane PCIe bus and is designed according to VITATM 42.3.

Gigabit Ethernet

Two Gigabit Ethernet interfaces are accessible via the front panel of the XMC-CPU/Zulu. This gives an excellent base for EtherCAT® applications.
Two additional rear IO Ethernet interfaces are accessible via the XMC connector P6. The rear IO Ethernet interfaces come without electrical isolation.
Two of the GB Ethernet interfaces (one front, one rear) are rooted through the FPGA. Therefore special Ethernet IP-cores can be implemented.

Serial Interface

A serial interface, designed as terminal interface, is accessible via a USB Mini connector. This USB Mini type-B connector is easily accessible via the front panel of the XMC-CPU/Zulu.

Software Support

The Flash memory carries the standard boot program “Das U-Boot” and enables the XMC-CPU/Zulu to boot various operating systems from on-board Flash, network or eMMC.
BSPs are available for Linux and VxWorks. The BSPs include an example source code for the FPGA. Programming of the FPGAs is done via XILINX Toolchain.
The esd EtherCAT Master Stack is available for various operating systems.

Customization on Request

Customized options are available for customized series production in reasonable quantities. Please contact our sales team for detailed information.
For example...

esd offers standard PIM modules for CAN signals. Furthermore a CAN IP-core (CAN esdACC), which is configurable (number of CAN nodes, routing FPGA ↔ P4), is available for the on-board FPGA on request.

An IRIG-B IP Core by esd electronics can be implemented in the FPGA. The physical interface of IRIG-B has to be provided externally via a PIM module. An esd PIM module is available on request.

- Further CPU Types
Furthermore other CPU-types (ZU2EG, ZU3CG and ZU3EG) are applicable.

- Extended Temperature Range
The temperature range can be extended from -40 °C up to 75 °C.

PMC according to IEEE Std 1386-2001 instead of XMC interface via connectors P1 and P2. The PCI bus conforms to PCI Local Bus Specification 3.0, 32 bit 33/66
MHz, 3.3 V (5 V tolerant), PCI bus master capability. The PMC interface supports 32 bit / 66 MHz PCI bus according to PCI Local Bus Specification 3.0.

- Ethernet
The rear IO Ethernet signals are connected via P6. To connect standard Ethernet cabling an esd PIM module is available on request. The PIM module comes with an RJ45 connector and the Ethernet transformers on-board.

An additional RTC can be equipped. A backup battery can be connected via P4 and P6.

- Software
Please contact our Sales-Team for board support packages of other real-time operating systems (e.g. QNX®).
