The Intel® Arria® 10 SoM was developed with an emphasis onembedded and automotive vision applications. UsingIntels Arria 10 SoC devices in the 29x29 mm package, themodule off ers a multitude of interfaces in a small 8 cm by6,5 cm form factor.32 versatile LVDS lanes are brought out to the moduleconnectors, allowing a variety of customer specifichigh speed differential data IO with e.g. image sensors,displays, ADC or DACs. Each lane can individually beused as 2 independent 1.8V GPIOs as well to be able toe.g. hook up single ended control & status signals or othergeneric IO functions. All 12 RX/TX Gigabit transceiverscan be used to implement high bandwidth videostandards such as 12G SDI or DisplayPort. This requiresa careful clocking strategy to minimize jitter for sensitiveapplications such as SDI. The four transceiver referenceclock pins are partly connected to programmable clockgenerators on the module itself, the others are sourcedfrom the base board to implement interfaces like PCIeGen3 where the reference clock comes from the systemor to allow for video genlocking.ƒƒ8x6,5 cm Module with two mezzanine connectors to acustomer base boardƒƒIntel Arria 10 SoC FPGA with 160 to 480 KLEs andCortex A9 Dual Core CPUƒƒPower management on the module guarantees properpower-up and -down sequence, only 12V to be suppliedby baseboardƒƒTwo separate DDR4 memory interfacesƒƒCPU Memory System-- 2GByte-- 32 Bit parallel Data Bus-- 8 Bit ECC supported for safety critical applications-- Up to 2.4Gbit/s per pin for a total bandwidth of 77Gbit/sƒƒFPGA Memory System-- 4GByte-- 64 Bit parallel Data Bus-- Up to 2.4Gbit/s per pin for a total bandwidth of153Gbit/sƒƒAll 12 Transceivers at 12 GBit/s and above:-- Supports interfaces such as PCIe Gen3 x8, 10/40GBit/s Ethernet, DisplayPort and 12G SDI-- Dedicated clocking on the module to provide lowestjitter for sensitive applications such as SDƒƒUp to 32 LVDS lanes to the baseboard:-- each either RX or TX--
