BORA Xilinx ZYNQ XC7Z010/XC7Z020 CPU module[edit | edit source]


BORA is the new top-class Dual Cortex-A9 + FPGA CPU module by DAVE Embedded Systems, based on the recent Xilinx Zynq XC7Z010/XC7Z020 application processor. Thanks to BORA, customers are going to save time and resources by using a compact solution that includes both a CPU and an FPGA, avoiding complexities on the carrier PCB.

BORA is designed and manufactured according to DAVE Embedded Systems Ultra Line specifications, in order to guarantee premium quality and technical value for customers who require top performances and flexibility.

The Hardware Manual (Bora) provides detailed information about hardware interfaces and characteristics. This document will provide a functional overview of the module and will focus on system-related issues.

Please visit BORA Web Page for more product information.
