Borax SOM

borax-board.jpg

Borax SOM is a system on module card integrating Altera® Cyclone® V SoC and necessary memory, power and external interfaces on a very small size card.

Cyclone V SoC is a new SoC tightly coupling with Dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 and FPGA fabric, enabling easy development of complex systems with advanced application processing and flexible hardware using FPGA.

By utilizing pin compatible packages, users can pick optimal FPGA and memory capacities for development and mass production purposes and price/performance requirements.

Base board with various interfaces for development phase is provided, enabling parallel development of system hardware and software/FPGA design, resulting in shorter development turn around.
