Visible Benefits – Aldec Makes Available a ‘4k Ultra HD Image Pass Through’ Reference Design for Users of Its Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC Embedded Development Kit TySOM-3-ZU7EV

, an industry leader in electronic design verification,
announces the immediate availability of a 4k Ultra HD image transfer
reference design for users of its TySOM™-3-ZU7EV embedded development

The TySOM-3-ZU7EV features a Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC device,
which provides 64-bit processor (dual-core ARM® Cortex™) scalability and
contains all the necessary connectivity and processing power to acquire,
process and send high-resolution 4K (at 60fps) image data via the QSFP+
interconnect standard.

“Modern image broadcast technologies rely on real-time high-resolution
image transmission, between an image producer and several image
consumers,” comments Radek Nawrot, Director of Operations at Aldec. “To
reduce bandwidth without sacrificing image quality, many emerging
applications are calling for codec protocols such as QSFP+. Our
reference design enables engineers to fast-track the implementation of
4k Ultra HD image transfer into their designs plus, of course, QSFP+ has
applications outside of image transfer too.”

Aldec provides a HW/SW co-simulation solution for Zynq-based
applications using Riviera-PRO™, the company’s popular functional
verification tool, when used in conjunction with open-source Quick
Emulation (QEMU).

Nawrot continues: “We’re keen to support our customers as much as
possible and we’re delighted to have received very positive feedback on
our ever-expanding range of reference designs, which allow engineers to
accelerate their design and verification activities.”

A demonstration of the 4k Ultra HD image transfer reference design will
be given on Aldec’s stand (617) at Arm TechCon 2018; October 16th
to 18th, San Jose Convention Center.

The demo will see the connection (via QSFP+) of two TySOM-3-ZU7EV kits.
One kit will also be connected to an FMC daughter card with a Leopard
Imaging MIPI-FMC camera and act as an image capture and transmission
(2160 pixels at 60Hz) unit. It will also display the captured image on a
4k monitor via TySOM’s HDMI socket. The other kit will receive and
display the video, on a second 4k monitor, to demonstrate the
high-speed, low-latency data transfer capabilities of the TySOM kits and
reference design.

About TySOM-3 Embedded Prototyping Board

TySOM-3-ZU7EV is a compact prototyping board containing a Zynq®
UltraScale+™ MPSoC device which provides 64-bit processor scalability
while combining real-time control with soft and hard engines for
graphics, video, waveform, and packet processing. Xilinx Zynq
UltraScale+ ZU7EV-FFVC1156 MPSoC contains a Video Codec Unit which
supports H.264/H.265, and also has the biggest FPGA in the UltraScale+™
MPSoC family. This chip includes a Quad-core ARM Cortex-A53 as an
Application Processing Unit, Dual-core ARM Cortex-R5 as a Real-Time
Processing Unit and ARM Mali-400 MP2 as a Graphics Processing Unit.
TySOM-3-ZU7 is designed to assure flexibility in selecting peripherals
because of leveraging all the features of the Zynq UltraScale+
ZU7EV-FFVC1156 MPSoC chip. This prototyping board contains 4 GB DDR4
Memory for the Programmable Logic (PL) and support DDR4 SODIMM Memory
for the Processing System (PS). This board includes 2 Gb NAND Memory and
supports up to 32GB of SSD storage in Micro-SD card. Communication and
networking is enabled by ×2 Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi & Bluetooth, CAN,
Pmod, 4× USB 3.0, USB to UART Bridge, SATA and QSFP+ connector.
Multimedia interfaces are provided using DisplayPort, HDMI IN/OUT. To
expand the peripherals, 2× FMC (1× HPC and 1× LPC) VITA 57.1-2010
compliant are provided on the board. Thus, additional devices can be
connected as FMC Daughter Cards that are provided by Aldec and other
