Writings on high-performance digital design by Jeff Johnson, maker of the Ethernet FMC and other FPGA solutions.

Avnet releases PicoZed FMC Carrier Card V2

For those of you who were interested in running my recent tutorials about connecting a PCIe SSD to the Zynq (Zynq PCI Express Root Complex design in Vivado and Connecting an SSD to an FPGA running PetaLinux) you’ll be happy to know that Avnet has released the PicoZed FMC Carrier Card V2, which is the platform on which those tutorials were based.

For more information about the new PicoZed carrier, check out their video – and keep an eye out at 1m:32s where the Ethernet FMC gets a mention!

Jeff holds a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Sydney, and has more than a decade of experience in electronic and FPGA design. He has worked for design houses in Australia and Canada developing electronic products for a wide range of industries and markets. Jeff now works as an electronic design consultant and offers electronic and FPGA design services through his company Opsero.
