3rd July 2013: San Jose, CA:

Alpha Data is proud to announce the launch of the ADM-XRC-7Z1, the first in a new class of products featuring the Xilinx Zynq System-on-Chip (SoC).

The ADM-XRC-7Z1 is an XMC Mezzanine card suitable for initial development through to deployment in rugged environments. Supporting the largest devices in the Zynq family, the ADM-XRC-7Z1 provides dedicated USB, Serial and Ethernet interfaces for the Processing System. The Programmable Logic is served with on-board memory and flexible IO to the front and rear. The front I/O supports the large range of Alpha Data XRM adapters for applications including:

  • Software-Defined Radio (SDR)
  • Radar and Sonar Processing
  • Image Processing
  • Machine Vision
"Xilinx Zynq is a game changer for the embedded market. The performance of dual ARM Cortex-A9 processors, tightly coupled to over 6M logic gates with high-speed IO, allows a reduction in Size, Weight and Power that renders existing system architectures obsolete. With the ADM-XRC-7Z1, designers can now integrate their I/O, DSP and host processing in a single mezzanine card."

Adam Smith, CEO of Alpha Data Inc.


Availability

The ADM-XRC7Z1 is competitively priced and available to order immediately. It ships with a comprehensive Software Development Kit (SDK), including example designs and software drivers. The board is available in industrial grade and air or conduction cooled variants, making it ideal for use in a wide range of markets and applications.
