Overview

The Mercury+ AA1 system-on-chip (SoC) module combines Altera's Arria 10 SoC FPGA with integrated ARM� dual-core Cortex?-A9 (up to 1.5 GHz) with fast DDR4 SDRAM, eMMC flash, quad SPI flash, Gigabit Ethernet PHY and an RTC, all in a package measuring just 74 x 54 mm. The module?s 286 user I/Os, up to 8 GByte SDRAM, 8 GByte eMMC flash and 64 MByte quad SPI flash combine to form a truly high-performance processing unit. A myriad of interfacing options are also available: 12 MGTs with a data transfer rate of up to 8 and 12.5 Gbps, PCIe� Gen3 x4/Gen2 x8, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0. As well as having long-term availability, the AA1 is also available in industrial temperature grade, and needs just a single 5-15 V supply for operation. Starter kits are available for all variants, so you can dive right in. Enclustra also offers a comprehensive ecosystem for the AA1, offering all required hardware, software and support materials. The Mercury+ PE1 base board is a complete development platform for the AA1; detailed documentation and reference designs make it easy to get started, in addition to the user manual, free schematics, a 3D-model, PCB footprint and differential I/O length tables. To get Linux up and running in minutes, Enclustra offers the Enclustra Build Environment; Linux can be complied for the Mercury+ AA1 with a few clicks, generating the required U-Boot, Linux and BusyBox-based root file system binaries. Further expansion options are provided by the LPC/HPC FMC connectors on the PE1 base board, compatible with a huge range of add-on boards from many manufacturers - ADCs, DACs, motor control cards and RF links are just a small selection of possibilities.
