SY8-Cyclone CompactPCI serial board

January 2019 Industrial Computer Hardware

The SY8-Cyclone is a CompactPCI serial peripheral board, equipped with a powerful FPGA, and up to ten RJ45 connectors for 100BASE-TX Ethernet. With its PCI Express x4 interface, the Cyclone-V FPGA can be used as an Ethernet NIC, switch, router or gateway. Industrial Ethernet real-time protocols and custom-specific applications may be integrated.

The 4HP front panel width solution provides five RJ45 connectors. As an option, the board is available with ten Ethernet ports in the 8HP width front panel. A reference design based on Quartus is available as starting point for customers. The circuitry operates over the industrial temperature range and contains logic elements, as well as hard IPs for the PCI Express controller. In addition to non-volatile I²C memory, 512 MB DDR3L soldered RAM is wired on board. As an option, the card can accommodate a mezzanine module with an identical secondary FPGA. This allows either safety-critical applications by redundancy, or additional logic elements for custom specific solutions.
