The aijuboard (the name is tongue-in-cheek) is a single board computer built around the Xilinx Zynq-7000 combined system-on-chip and FPGA. It is probably the most complicated circuit board I have ever designed, with over 300 components, including three BGA chips and many tiny 0402 components. Doing DDR3 on a four layer board was a particular challenge.
I've done a production run of 15 boards that are fully functional. There are also two working prototype boards.
With the always much appreciated help of cinap_lenrek we have ported 9front to it and it is working wonderfully, although there's stil lot of work to be done (Displayport, SATA).
- Dual-core ARM Cortex A9 CPU at 667 MHz
- Reasonably large Xilinx Series 7 FPGA (XC7Z015)
- 1 GB of DDR3 DRAM
- Dual USB 2.0
- Gigabit Ethernet (the real deal – no shitty USB converters)
- SD card slot
- Dual-lane Displayport (provided by FPGA)
- SATA (provided by FPGA)
- 16 MB of flash for bootloader
- Builtin USB-serial and USB-JTAG converter
- Real-time clock with battery backup (dropped in Rev 1.1)
