Offering the Zynq SoC in a standard form factor, allowing easy development and deployment in commercial, industrial and rugged systems.
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:
"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.
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.

Alpha Data has worked closely with Xilinx® to bring a powerful new processing solution to the data center market based on Xilinx®All Programmable FPGAs. The ADM-PCIE-7V3 board can accelerate processing, increase data throughput and enable unprecedented solutions for optimized computing clusters.
The PCIE Gen3 Reference design has been designed to be installed on the Xilinx® VC709 demonstration board. The design is provided with a demo core which runs for a limited time only after reset. A VC709 board locked core is available for prospective Alpha-Data customers on request. Alpha-Data customers who purchase an ADM-XRC-7V1 or ADM-VPX3-7V2 will be entitled to an unlocked core.
See the Alpha Data PCI Express® Reference Design Page for further details.
