Embedded products are nowadays following the trend with commercial products. Decreasing size, improving performance and increasing battery lifetime. Is it possible to use FPGA’s in such environment?
Traditionally PC-based platforms are selected for ease-of-programming, fast time-to-market or availability of programming engineers. With the Xilinx Zynq® System-on-Chip (SOC) based Miami SoM in combination with Dyplo®, you can approach performances similar to common desktop PC systems at fraction of the volume and power consumption.
Miami System-on-Module (SOM) provides superior ratios at a nominal form factor of just 65mmx68mm. These modules combine a 1 GHz dual core ARM processor with FPGA logic and hundreds of concurrent executing DSP kernels. This unleashes over 50 Giga multiply-accumulate (MAC) operations per second on your platform, competing with high-end GPU solutions. Dyplo® makes these platforms even more efficient. With Dyplo® the FPGA core is only used when its performance is needed: in its idle state, the core uses no energy at all!
