Interfaces and Pins
Board to Board (B2B) I/O's
For detailed information about the B2B pin out, please refer to the Master Pinout Table.
Micro SD Card Socket
Micro SD Card socket is not directly wired to the B2B connector pins, but through a Texas Instruments
TXS02612 SDIO Port Expander, which is needed for voltage translation due to the different voltage levels of
the Micro SD Card and MIO bank 501 of the Xilinx Zynq-module. The Micro SD Card has 3.3V signalling,
but the MIO Bank 501 on the Xilinx Zynq-module chip is set to 1.8V.
The Micro SD Card Socket is also accessible by PMOD-Connector J2, which is configurible by the
"SEL_SD"-signal of the System-Controller-CPLD
Dual channel USB to UART/FIFO
The TE0701 has on-board USB 2.0 High Speed to UART/FIFO IC FT2232HQ from FTDI. Channel A can be
used as JTAG-Interface (MPSSE) to program the System-Controller-CPLD, Channel B can be used as
UART-Interface routed to CPLD. There also 4 additionally bus-lanes available for user-specific use. The
FT2232HQ-Chip can also be used as FIFO-Buffer.
There is also a standard 256 Byte EEPROM connected to the FT2232HQ-chip available to store custom
configuration settings. EEPROM settings can be changed using FTDI provided tools that can be
downloaded from FTDI website. See FTDI website for more information.
USB Interface
TE0701 board has two physical USB-connectors:
J7 as mini-USB-connector wired to on-board FTDI FT2232HQ chip.
J12 as micro-USB-connector wired to B2B connector JB3 (there is usually an USB-transceiver on the
JTAG Interface
JTAG access to the CPLD and Xilinx Zynq-module is provided via Mini-USB JTAG Interface (FTDI
FT2232H) and controlled by DIP switch S3.
The JTAG port of the CPLD is enabled by setting switch S3 labeled as "ENJTAG" to the OFF-position.

There are eight LED's (L1 to L8) available to the user. All LEDs are red colored and connected to the onboard System-Controller-CPLD. Their functions are programmable and depend on the firmware of the
System-Controller-CPLD. For detailed information, please refer to the documentation of the TE0701 SytemController-CPLD.
LED5 (L5) to LED8 (L8) are operating only when the corresponding power supply VIOTB (i.e.,
bank 1 of the on-board CPLD) is switched on. This can be accomplished on the one hand by
connecting the FMC power supply FMC_VADJ to VIOTB (J21: 1,2-3), which is the default option,
or on the other hand by connecting either 2.5V (J17: 1, 2-3) or 3.3V (J17: 1-2,3) to VIOTB (J21: 1-2,
3). Please note that for the first default option, the FMC power supply must be manually switched
on by the, e.g., Zynq FPGA on the TE0720 (For detailed information how to set the voltage
FMC_VADJ via I2C, please refer to the documentation of the TE0701 Sytem-Controller-CPLD).
One green LED D22 shows the avaibility of the 3.3V supply voltage of the TE0701 Carrier Board.
4-bit DIP-switch
Additionally, on the TE0701 Carrier Board there is a 4-bit DIP-switch (S3; see (9) in Figure 1) available. The
default S3 switch mapping is as follows:
CM1: Mode pin 1 (routed to Carrier Controller)
CM0: Mode pin 0 (routed to Carrier Controller)
JTAGEN: Set to ON for normal JTAG operation. Must be moved to OFF position for TE0701 CPLD update only
MIO0: Readable signal by Carrier Controller and TE07xx Module
On the TE0701 Carrier Board there are two push buttons (S1 and S2) and are available to the user. The
default PB mapping is as follows:
Default Mapping:
If S1 is pushed, the active-low RESet IN (RESIN) signal will be asserted. Note: This reset can also be forced by the FTDI USB-toJTAG interface.

Page 6 of 16
TE0701 TRM
Revision: 1.0
Default Mapping:
If S2 is pushed, the active-high Power ON (PON) signal (that is internally pulled-up) will be deasserted, which can be considered as
a "RESTART" button to switch off (push button) and on (release button) all on-module power supplies (except 3.3VIN). Note: The
capability to be enabled the first time will become active shortly after Power on Reset (POR).
The active-high PON signal is directly mapped to the active-high EN1 signal which is routed to the SC (e.g., on the
TE0720) and directly used (after deglitching) as a mandatory active-high enable signal to the power FET switch (3.3VIN
-> 3.3V) as well as the DC-DC converters (VIN -> 1.0V, 1.5V, 1.8V).
TE0701 has a RJ45 Gigabit Ethernet MAGJACK (J14) with two LED's.
On-board Ethernet jack J14 pins are routed to B2B connector JB1. The center tap of the Magnetics is not
connected to module B2B connector.
PHY LED's are not connected directly to the module's B2B connectors as the 4x5 module have no
dedicated PHY LED pins assigned. PHY LED's are connected to the TE0701 System-Controller-CPLD, that
can route those LED's to some module's I/O Pins. In that case the module has to map the PHY LEDs to
corresponding pins.
With initial Carrier Controller design, one RJ45 LED (the right one) is connected to module NOSEQ pin that
functions as PHY LED output on TE0720 with default settings. The other LED is connected to a pin of the
I2C-to-GPIO-module and can be controlled by the control register of this module on the Systen-ControllerCPLD if desired.
Pmod Slots
J5 and J6 Pmod signal routing is done as differential pairs for pins 1-2, 3-4, 7-8, 9-10
Please use Master Pinout Table table as primary reference for the pin mapping information.

Power Supply
Power supply with minimum current capability of 3A at 12V for system startup is recommended.
TE0701 jumper and DIP switch overview
On the TE0701 carrier boards (TE0701-03 and higher revisions) different hardware/software configurations
can be chosen by 6 jumpers and one 4-bit DIP switch:
Figure 2 shows the position of the jumpers on the Carrier Board and their default configuration at delivery
Figure 2: TE0701 Jumper Configurations of TE0701-03 and higher revisions.
The purpose of the jumpers and the DIP switch of the Carrier Board will be explained in the following
Configuring VCCIO-Voltage
The Zynq-module power supply is fixed to 5V!
Additionally, the VCCIO33 and VCCIO34 supply voltages of the Zynq FPGA (on bank 33 and bank 34,
respectively) can be selected either to be 3.3V (J17: 1-2, 3) or 2.5V (J17: 1, 2-3). The latter is the default
setting (i.e., VCCIO33=VCCIO34=2.5V). Furthermore, the VCCIO13 supply voltage (bank 13) can be
selected to be either identical to bank 33/34 (J21: 1-2, 3) or to be FMC_VADJ (J21: 1, 2-3). Again, the latter
is the default setting (i.e., VCCIO13=FMC_VADJ).

TE0701 TRM
Revision: 1.0
Note: The LVDS-pairs FMC_LA17 to FMC_LA33 (also PB0 to PB3 as well as Y0 to Y5) are routed to bank
13 of the Zynq-module, hence, the VCCIO13 supply voltage is chosen correspondingly by default!
The FMC power supply on the TE0701 Carrier Board (i.e., FMC_VADJ) is user programmable via
The setting of the adjustable voltage FMC_VADJ is done by the dedicated I2C-Bus with the lines
"HDMI_SCL" and "HDMI_SDA". Therefore, a control-byte has to be send to the 8-bit control
register of the I2C-to-GPIO-module of the System-Controller-CPLD. This module has the I2CAddress 0x22.
To enable FMC_VADJ on TE0701, bit 7 of the control-register should be set. Note that the I2CBus is shared with the I2C-Interface of the HDMI-Controller.
For detailed information how to set the voltage FMC_VADJ via I2C, please refer to the documentation of the
TE0701 Sytem-Controller-CPLD.
There is also the possibility to select fixed FMC_VADJ voltages by the DIP switch S3. Therefore,
there is no need to configure any bits on the 8-bit control register of the I2C-to-GPIO-module of the
Table 3 shows the switch-configuration of the DIP switch S3 to set the voltage FMC_VADJ.
Note: The configuration of FMC_VADJ depends on the used firmware of the System-Controller-CPLD. For
detailed information, refer to the documentation of the TE0701 Sytem-Controller-CPLD.

Configuring 12V Power Supply Pin on the CameraLink Connector
Finally, a 12V power supply can be connected to pin 26 of the CameraLink by closing J18. However, this
option is disabled by default (J18: OPEN).

Configuring Power Supply of the Micro USB Connector (Device,
Host or OTG Modes)
The TE0701 carrier board can be configured as a USB host. Hence, it must provide from 5.25V to 4.75V to
the board side of the downstream connection (micro USB port on J12; 13). To provide sufficient power, a
TPS2051 power distribution switch is located on the carrier board in between the 5V power supply and the
Vbus signal of the USB downstream port interface. If the output load exceeds the current-limit threshold, the
TPS2051 limits the output current and pulls the overcurrent logic output (OC_n) low, which is routed to the
on-board CPLD. The TPS2051 is put into operation by setting J19 CLOSED. J20 provides an extra 100µF
decoupling capacitor (in addition to 10µF) to further stabilize the output signal. Moreover, a series
terminating resistor of either 1K (J9: 1-2, 3) or 10K (J9: 1, 2-3) is selectable on the "USB-VBUS" signal. Both
signals, USB-VBUS and VBUS_V_EN (that enables the TPS2051 on "high") are routed (as well as the
corresponding D+/- data lines) via the on-board connector directly to the USB 2.0 high-speed transceiver
PHY from SMSC (USB3320) on the GigaZee module, which is, in turn, connected to the Zynq FPGA. In
summary, the default jumper settings are the following: J9: 1-2, 3 (1K series terminating resistor); J19:
CLOSED (TPS2051 in operation); J20: CLOSED (100 µF added).
Additionally, the TE0701 carrier board is equipped with a second mini USB port (J7; see (8) in Figure 1) that
is connected to a "USB to multi-purpose UART/FIFO IC" from FTDI (FT2232HQ) and provides a USB-toJTAG interface between a host PC and the TE0701 carrier board and the Zynq-module, respectively.
Because it acts as a USB function device, no power switch is required (and only a ESD protection must be
provided) in this case.
Power On Reset (POR)
On the TE0701 the 5.0V and 3.3V power supply rails are generated by high performance DC-DC-converters
from the external 12V supply. While the 3.3V plane supplies several on-board components (e.g., Lattice
CPLD and FTDI Dual USB UART/FIFO IC), the 5V plane is mainly provided for power supply of the module
to be carried (e.g., TE0720 Zynq SoC module). For the latter, however, special considerations must be
taken (see TE0720 Power Supply). Therefore, the on-module system controller (SC) must be provided with
information about the power-on-reset (POR) process, namely, the following control signals EN1, RESIN,
and NOSEQ. And the SC provides, in turn, the status signal PGOOD down to the on-board CPLD.
This CPLD output active-high signal is a “power on (PON)” signal that is usually HIGH (weak pull-up), except, the user push
button S2 is pressed, which forces the related signal to be LOW (ground). EN1 enables (EN1=’1’) and disables (EN1=’0’) the
supplies on the carried module, respectively.

Page 10 of 16
TE0701 TRM
Revision: 1.0
This signal is controlled by the user push button S1 on the TE0701 and is forwarded directly to the SC, where it is latched
together with the EN1 signal as well as the “all power rails OK” signal (1.0V and 1.8V for core; 1.5V and VTT for RAM, and 3.3V).
The 3.3V power supply rail can be switched on (EN_3V3=’1’) or off (EN_3V3=’0’) by a load switch ( TPS27082L) and
is continuously checked by a voltage detector (TPS3805H33). Note: The 3.3VIN power supply (from which the 3.3V
power plane is sourced) is supplied by the TE0701 Carrier Board and is kept always on!
When RESIN (alias user push button S1) is not pushed and simultaneously the EN1 signal is asserted (EN='1') and all power rails
are ok, the active-high Zynq power-on-reset signal PS_POR_B is asserted.
This CPLD signal can be used to enable or disable the power sequencing mode. If the active-high NOSEQ signal is set to HIGH
(NOSEQ='1') then the 1.0V and 1.8V power supplies on the carried module will be forced to be enabled. In normal mode
(NOSEQ='0') the 3.3V power supply is turned on after the 1.0V and 1.8V supplies have stabilized (see TE0720 Power Supply).
The latter is the default mode, i.e., for the NOSEQ pin of the SC the internal pull-down is activated. After booting, the NOSEQ pin
can be used as general-purpose I/O pin. For example, the SC (REV 0.02) maps the Ethernet PHY LED0 to NOSEQ by default.
However, this mapping can be changed by software after boot.
This active-high signal (with internal pull-up) is a status input to the CPLD about the current status of the power supply rails on the
carried module (e.g., TE0720). It is routed to user LED3, which is switched on when the on-module power supply rails are not ok.

documentation of the TE0720 System Management Controller.
