The company will use a Mandelbrot fractal calculation, an intensive computational task, as an example of the power of the MPSoC technology used in the Enclustra Mercury+ XU1 module. The demonstration will show MPSoC technology calculating the Mandelbrot fractal set at up to 100 frames per second in the MPSoC FPGA fabric, running 84 billion 64×64 bit multiplications per second. It will be controlled and displayed by software on the ARM processing system running Ubuntu at 1920×1080 Full-HD resolution.

The demonstration is intended to show that it is simple to integrate the FPGA into a CPU-based system to accelerate computational tasks. The Enclustra engineering team can also support customers in all areas of FPGA-based system development to further shorten design time.

The Mercury+ XU1 MPSoC used in the demo offers an easy entry into the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ecosystem. In addition to 747,000 systems logic cells and 6 ARM processing cores, the Mercury+ XU1-15EG also adds a GPU and up to 294 user I/Os. Built-in interfaces include two Gigabit Ethernet, up to two USB 2.0/3.0, sixteen MGTs (with speeds of up to 12.5 Gbps), as wellas PCIe Gen2 x4. With up to 4 GB of DDR4 SDRAM with a maximum bandwidth of 19.2 GByte/s and ECC protection, as well as 16 GB eMMC flash memory, the Mercury+ XU1 is equipped to handle even the heaviest of resource-hogging applications, despite having a footprint of just 74 × 54 mm. The module is available in both commercial and industrial temperature range and needs just a single 5-15 V supply for operation.
