Friday, 21 September, 2018 | Supplied by: element14



The Ultra96 is an ARM-based development board jointly created by Avnet, Xilinx and 96Boards. The development board is based on the Linaro 96Boards Consumer Edition specification, features the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC and provides developers with a powerful environment to simplify machine learning. The 96Boards’ specifications are open and define a standard board layout for development platforms.

The product is designed to offer a wide range of potential peripherals and features programmable logic acceleration engines which help to deliver complexity with simplicity. It allows software developers to accelerate the development process for applications that require intense processing and high performance in areas such as AI, machine learning, virtual reality, IoT and industrial control.

The board boots from the industrial-rated Delkin 16 GB MicroSD card (supplied with the board), which is preloaded with Embedded Linux. Design engineers can connect to the board through a web server using its integrated wireless access point capability, or use the pre-loaded Embedded Linux plus Enlightenment Desktop via integrated Mini DisplayPort video output. Multiple application examples and onboard development options are provided as examples.

The product includes four user-controllable LEDs. Design engineers can 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.

Other features include: Micron 2 GB (512M x32) LPDDR4 RAM; 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 (provides both Classic and BLE); 1x USB 3.0 Type Micro-B upstream (device) port; 2x USB 3.0 and 1x USB 2.0 Type A downstream (host) ports; a 40-pin low-speed expansion header; and a 60-pin high-speed expansion header.
