The HES-XCVU9P-ZU7EV is designed for High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications which require immense digital signal processing. The board features a unique integration of a ZU7EV Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC and a VU9P Virtex® UltraScale+™ FPGA. This heterogeneous computing platform leverages a Quad-core ARM® Cortex-A53, Dual-core ARM® Cortex-R5 real-time processing units, an ARM® Mali-400 MP2 GPU, integrated H.264/H.265 video codec, and UltraScale+™ programmable logic in a 16nm FinFET node.
Available onboard external memory resources include three (3) DDR4 SODIMM slots and two (2) modules of 576Mb RLDRAM-3 (1Gb total). On-chip memory for the Zynq® programmable logic includes 11Mb of Block RAM and 27Mb of UltraRAM. On-chip memory for the VU9P programmable logic includes 75.9Mb of Block RAM and 270Mb of UltraRAM.

Clocking is provided by oscillators, PLLs, and MMCX connectors. Dedicated oscillators are connected directly to the FPGA devices as well as onboard PLLs. The onboard PLLs provide any-frequency common clocks for both FPGA devices and dedicated any-frequency clocks to the VU9P to accommodate a variety of applications. Clocking can also be provided through the FMC+ connector through thirteen (13) differential clock inputs to the VU9P.
The board is connected to a workstation or server through the board’s PCIe x16 edge connector. A wide variety of interfaces are available to be connected to the FPGA devices.

Aldec provides the Hes.Asic.Proto software package with necessary drivers and utilities for programming and communication with the board. For quick bring-up of host connection, Aldec provides ready to use image of the embedded Linux for ZU7EV device and HES Proto-AXI solution, which consists of a bridge module IP with AMBA AXI interface and accompanying PCI Express HES driver with C++ API for Linux and Windows PC allowing to transfer data directly to the AMBA AXI local bus behind the bridge. Power is supplied by a standard 6-pin PCIe power cable.
