TySOM-2A is a compact prototyping board containing mid-range Zynq-7000 module (Z-7030).
It is designed to assure flexibility in selecting peripherals due to leveraging the larger chip package (FFG676) with 250 I/O and 4 GTX transceivers and providing one FMC-HPC connector that enables use of expansion daughter cards. Standard peripherals like DDR3 RAM, USB and HDMI used by ARM CPU Processing System are contained in that board so the Linux OS or another Real Time Operating System (RTOS) can be booted out of the box without any additional hardware components. The OS and software executed by ARM Cortex CPU have 1GB of DDR3 RAM for their disposal and can use up to 32GB of SSD storage in Micro-SD card.
Communication and networking is enabled by the Gigabit Ethernet PHY with RJ45 connector. Standard peripherals can be attached to the USB 2.0 Hub that provides 4 USB ports. There is also a HDMI codec on the board to connect this TySOM mini computer to a monitor. Most of the FPGA I/O ports are routed to one FMC-HPC socket providing total of 144 I/Os and 4 GTX lines. Thus, additional devices can be connected as FMC Daughter Cards that are provided by Aldec and other vendors.
