One of our 96B Quad Ethernet Mezzanine customers
has built an extremely tough looking heatsink to passively cool the
single board computer and it’s Ethernet mezzanine. I just wanted to share the
photos; it makes the Ultra96 look like a tank!
In this video I use Iperf to measure the actual maximum throughput of a Gigabit Ethernet port on the Ultra96 v2 running PetaLinux. The result that I get is pretty impressive: 910-940Mbps!
To do this test yourself you’ll need to build the example design that you’ll find on our Github repo, and then prepare the SD card. Plug your SD card into your Ultra96 and fit the 96B Quad Ethernet Mezzanine on top of the Ultra96.

Over the last few months I’ve been really busy working on a new product and I just want to take a step back today and share some of it. Let me start with what it is and then I’ll tell you about how and why I did it.
The product A 4-port Gigabit Ethernet mezzanine card designed for Avnet’s Ultra96 Zynq Ultrascale+ single board computer.
