CompactPCI® Serial • FPGA Based Universal Networking Platform • 10 Port 100BASE-T1 Single Pair Ethernet (SPE)

The SY7-CYCLONE is a CompactPCI® Serial peripheral board, equipped with a powerful FPGA, and front panel I/O connectors for 10 x 100BASE-T1 Single Pair Ethernet. With its PCI Express® x4 interface, the Cyclone®-V FPGA can be configured e.g. as Ethernet NIC, switch, router, or gateway. Industrial Ethernet real time protocols and custom specific applications may be integrated. SPE (Single Pair Ethernet) is a new standard for many automotive and industrial applications. The 5CGXFC7C6F23I7N Cyclone®-V FPGA operates over the industrial temperature range and contains 150K logic elements, and also hard IPs for the PCI Express® controller. In addition to non-volatile I2C memory, 512MB DDR3L soldered RAM is wired on-board to the Cyclone-V FPGA. The SY7-CYCLONE is equipped with 100BASE-T1 PHYs designed for automotive robustness, supporting a cable length of at least 15m over a single unshielded twisted pair.
