Product description

Evaluation and prototyping 
The TOPIC Development kits are composed of Florida carrier boards in combination with an AMD Zynq® or Zynq Ultrascale+® based Miami Systemon-Modules (SoM). They are developed to evaluate the capabilities of the SOMs and to provide a means for rapid prototyping. The boards offer a rich pool of high-end peripherals. A development kit helps kick-start your application development in an early stage, giving access to the complete feature set of the processing system using the provided reference design and Linux board support package (BSP). 

Unlocking the full potential of AMD SOC silicon
TOPIC recently released the Miami Plus development kit as evaluation platform for our Miami Plus System-on-Module, based on AMD’s Zynq Ultrascale+ technology. The devkit gives access to most of the features you expect on nowadays embedded systems: support for data acquisition, visualization, human-machine interfaces, as well as communication.  

Customization resources and services 
Peripherals used on the evaluation boards are applied in various customer applications, resulting in robust circuit design, thorough testing, extensive software support and compliance validation (EMC). Software and FPGA reference designs, schematics and printed circuit board layout are available as a starting point for dedicated carrier board design or board customization.  

TOPIC also provides carrier board customization services to rapidly create customer specific board variances with short lead times. Optionally, the volume production and assembly of the boards can also be fulfilled by TOPIC. The board design capabilities of TOPIC are focused on high-end board realization.
