UltraZ AD is the platform for deep learning development, whose target is autonomous driving/self-controllable embedded products.
The board contains 2 sets of Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC by Xilinx, and eligible for autonomous driving test or embedded into autonomous controlled robot, as those tips serves separately for object recognition, space recognition, and route searching algorism.
Massive(288KB) ULTRA RAM and wide bandwidth DDR4 SDRAM (w/ECC) on XCZU11EG/XCZU7EV, will strongly support algorism development which enables quick response in neural network image processing.
UltraZ AD with XCZU7EV also mounts H.264/265 Video Encoder/ Decoder, which allows 4K/2K 60fps video stream codec.
As UltraZ AD foresees next gen high quality vision censor interface, it mounts 2 port FMC HPC connectors and also delivers interface which enables high resolution/quick capture of car surroundings. It also mounts industry standard PCle Gen3.0 x4 lane, USB3.0, 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet, CAN2.0B, HDMI so that it can be connected to various evaluation needs such as via car interface, PC.
It also mounts AURIX processor by Infineon as an entry point for safety feature design, and it serves to monitor electricity per devices and UltraZ AD operating status notification to outer systems.
