Welcome to
-V2
The Ultra96Tm-V2 is an Arm-based, Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+Tm MPSoC dev board modeled after the Linaro 96Boards' CE (Consumer Edition) specification. It has a Microchip-certified radio and standard dev platform that can be used by developers of software applications, hardware devices, and kernels. Its components allow industrial temperature grade options for harsh environmental applications.

Technical Specification

Ultra96Tm is an Arm-based, Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+Tm MPSoC development board based on the Linaro 96Boards specification. The 96Boards’ specifications are open and define a standard board layout for development platforms that can be used by software application, hardware device, kernel, and other system software developers. Ultra96 represents a unique position in the 96Boards community with a wide range of potential peripherals and acceleration engines in the programmable logic that is not available from other offerings. Product Brief (Datasheet)

Ultra96 provides four user-controllable LEDs. Engineers may also interact with the board through the 96Boards-compatible low-speed and high-speed expansion connectors by adding peripheral accessories such as those included in Seeed Studio’s Grove Starter Kit for 96Boards.

Micron LPDDR4 memory provides 2 GB of RAM in a 512M x 32 configuration. Wireless options include 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 (provides both Bluetooth Classic and Low Energy (BLE)). UARTs are accessible on a header as well as through the expansion connector. JTAG is available through a header (external USB-JTAG required). I2C is available through the expansion connector.

Ultra96 provides one upstream (device) and two downstream (host) USB 3.0 connections. A USB 2.0 downstream (host) interface is provided on the high speed expansion bus. Two Microchip USB3320 USB 2.0 ULPI Transceivers and one Microchip USB5744 4-Port SS/HS USB Controller Hub are specified.

The integrated power supply generates all on-board voltages from an external 12V supply (available as an accessory).

Development Using Ubuntu Desktop Linux

These tutorials provide a means to integrate several different technologies on a single platform. Using the Avnet target boards, we have the power of a ARM Cortex-A9 processors, combined with the unrivaled flexibility of Xilinx programmable logic to implement custom hardware systems. We use a Linux kernel as the foundation operating system running on the processor cores which enables a very large ecosystem of software to be run on our development kits. Virtual machines can provide a very convenient Ubuntu development environment for building the hardware platform and cross-compiling software to target the Processing System.
