BORA Xpress


Xilinx 'Zynq' -based Dual Cortex-A9 + FPGA CPU Module

BORA Xpress is a Dual Cortex-A9 + FPGA CPU module from DAVE Embedded Systems, based on the recent Xilinx Zynq XC7Z015/XC7Z030 application processor.

BORA Xpress offers great computational power, thanks to the extensive set of peripherals, the Dual ARM Cortex-A9 and the Artix-7 or Kintex-7 FPGA, together with a large set of high-speed I/Os (up to 6.25 Gbps).

The use of the Xilinx Zynq processor enables extensive system-level differentiation of new applications in many industry fields, where high-performance and extremely compact form factor (85mm x 50mm) are key factors.


  • Unmatched performance - Dual ARM Cortex-A9 @ up to 1GHz
  • Xilinx Zynq board based on Xilinx Zynq XC7Z015/XC7Z030
  • SERDES: Xpress lanes up to 6.25 Gbps
  • On-board NOR and NAND Flash
  • Artix-7 or Kintex-7 FPGA integrated on-chip
  • FPGA banks - wide range PSU input from 1.2V to 3.3V
  • Highest security and reliability: internal voltage monitoring and power supply supervision on board
  • Reduced carrier complexity: dual CAN, USB, Ethernet GB and native 3.3 V I/O
  • SWaP optimised – very small form factor (85mm x 50mm)
  • On-board 5ppm RTC
  • Pin2Pin Compatibility with BORA SOM based on Zynq XC7Z010/XC7Z020


The BORA XPress Xilinx Zynq board has been designed to keep full compatibility with the DAVE Embedded Systems 'ULTRA' Line of CPU modules. ULTRA CPU modules offer a state-of-the-art, full-performance, no-compromise package with enhanced mechanical retention. PCIe interfaces and FPGA provide an infinite number of options and customisations.
