Xilinx and Infineon Collaborate on Power Solutions for the Zynq UltraScale + MPSoC and RFSoC Families

Xilinx Inc. and Infineon Technologies AG are jointly providing scalable power supplies for the Xilinx® Zynq® UltraScale™ + MPSoC and RFSoC families. Infineon will supply the module IRPS5401 for the power supply of the two evaluation kits ZCU104 and ZCU111 from Xilinx. The ZCU104 with Zynq UltraScale + MPSoC supports the fast implementation of Embedded Vision designs. These include surveillance, driver assistance systems, machine vision, augmented reality (AR), drones and medical imaging. The kit ZCU111 includes the Zynq UltraScale RFSoC for the development of analog RF designs for wireless and wired applications, early warning radar and other high-performance RF applications.

These two evaluation kits provide solutions for dynamic power, with sequential power-on, fault management, and telemetry. This allows system developers a quick market introduction cycle. The Xilinx boards integrate 15 to 30 components for the complete power supply of eight to 30 busbars in small form factor applications.

The Xilinx Zynq UltraScale + RFSoC incorporates an analog-to-digital signal chain supported by a DSP subsystem, allowing analog designers a highly flexible configuration. It reduces system performance and size by 50 to 75 percent. At the same time, the board offers great flexibility when adapting to changing specifications and network topologies. The Xilinx Zynq UltraScale + MPSoC features a quad-core ARM application processor, a dual-core real-time processor, and a Mali graphics processor unit. It is the most advanced SoC on the market.

The evaluation kits are equipped with Infineon's IRPS5401 power supply for FPGA / SoCs, which require multiple power supplies for 10W to 50W total power. A uDrMos integrated OptiMOS5 power amplifier supports the integrated chip for the DC / DC power control. This will make the Vcore voltage and other input voltages of the FPGA / SoC families scalably addressed. The integrated circuit includes multiple DC / DC controllers with FET and drivers, DDR3 / DDR4 LDOs, comprehensive input and output disturbance management, and voltage, current, and power telemetry. Other features include built-in delayed voltage sequencing for powering up and powering down and integrated digital compensation that reduces the number of external components.
