PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, today released the UltraZed-EG Starter Kit, which provides a complete system for prototyping and evaluating systems based on the XilinxÆ ZynqÆ UltraScale+ MPSoC and bundles the new UltraZed-EG System on Module (SOM) and Carrier Card. The kit is available now to customers in the Americas, EMEA, Asia and Japan and sells for $895.

The Avnet-designed UltraZed-EG SOM is a highly flexible, rugged SOM that packages all the necessary functions for an embedded processing system, including system memory, Ethernet, USB and configuration memory. The SOM provides designers of high-performance systems, in markets including industrial automation, smart energy, medical, digital signage and security surveillance, with easy access to 180 user I/O pins, 26 PS MIO pins and four high-speed PS GTR transceivers, as well as four PS GTR reference clock inputs via three Micro Headers.

“The Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC delivers new levels of embedded SoC scalability and flexibility that are essential in next-generation applications, including wired and 5G wireless infrastructure, cloud computing and the Industrial IOT,” said Nasser Poureh, director of technology, technical marketing, Avnet Electronics Marketing. “With Avnet’s off-the-shelf UltraZed-EG SOM, supported by the Avnet UltraZed IO Carrier Card, customers can not only build high-performance systems based on the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC device family with confidence, but they will also be able to cut system bring-up and debug time by half, while reducing overall system cost by 20 percent or more as compared to standard chip-down designs.”

“The UltraZed-EG SOM, IO Carrier Card and Starter Kit are a true representation of Avnet’s commitment to supporting their customers’ development needs with the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC device family,” said Evan Leal, director of boards and kits product marketing at Xilinx. “The SOM element of the starter kit is also an excellent solution for helping users move more quickly from prototyping into production.”

The UltraZed-EG SOM and UltraZed IO Carrier Card are priced at $599 and $499 respectively, and are available for pre-order now. They will be in stock in January.
