The Bolt20 System on Module (SoM) combines Xilinx's Zynq-7020 All Programmable SoC device with fast DDR3 SDRAM, NAND flash, quad SPI flash to form a flexible and powerful embedded processing system. Zynq-7020 integrates a feature-rich dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore based Processing System (PS) and Xilinx Programmable Logic (PL) in a single device.

Bolt20 provides ultimate user I/O flexibility by routing the major PS peripheral I/O (MIO[53:16]) to the base board interface connectors allowing flexible user peripheral I/O assignment. The PS MIO signals are electrically designed to handle signal speeds of >1Gbps. In addition, 196 Programmable Logic (PL) pins are made available to the user via the base-board interface connectors. The PL I/O signals are routed to the connectors as a combination of 70-differential and 56-single-ended signals.

Hirose FX8C high-speed (3.125Gbps) stacking connectors are used to provide users with high-speed LVDS signal interface capability.

All required core voltages are generated on-board from a single 5V supply input. The IO voltage levels are user selectable and provided by the baseboard.

The small credit card size (2.1” x 3.2”) form factor allows space-saving hardware designs. The PCB provides 4 mounting holes for ruggedized applications.
