● The specification and 1st hardware● LEG reference builds● LNG and LHG feedback

Page 3: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

96BoardsEE is a specification

https://www.96boards.org/ee-specification

Page 4: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

96Boards Enterprise Edition (EE)

The 96Boards Enterprise Edition (EE) Platform is intended to support:● A low cost Software Development Platform for

advanced ARM SoCs, targeted at the high end embedded, networking and server markets

● Community engineering activities● Build farms● Early SoC evaluation

Page 5: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

Community engineering activities

● Community engineering activities include○ Open Source upstream development○ allowing ‘real life’ benchmarking and tuning,

including power management○ being integrated into an automated test farm○ 96Boards Community program run by Linaro

Page 6: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

There are two versions of the EE spec

● The Standard version 160 x 120mm○ low cost, small form factor, stand-alone

● The microATX version 244 x 244mm○ designed for integration with standard off the shelf

ATX PC parts and pre-built chassis

Page 7: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

Key design and distribution goals

● Low cost - $199-399 retail for the Std version● Easy to purchase globally

○ for example, via Amazon, Alibaba, Farnell, Digikey, Mouser etc.

● Enable a third party ecosystem○ develop around expansion boards/peripherals etc.

that can be used on any 96Boards EE compliant board

Page 8: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

Minimum hw features

● Design is SoC independent 32 or 64-bit SoC● 1GB RAM

○ 16GB strongly recommended for server software development incl. VM’s

Page 13: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

USB Ports

● A minimum of 2 USB host ports○ Strongly recommended to be USB3.0 or higher

● Double stacked Type A or Type C connector● Additional USB ports may be placed on the

designer I/O connector area at the back of the Standard EE board

Page 14: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

Power Measurement

● Current sense resistor(s)○ e.g. zero ohm resistor for production boards

● Placed on the main board power supply to measure the total base board power

● Optional:○ 40 pin expansion bus○ USB power out○ PCIe card power○ http://ds.arm.com/ds-5/optimize/arm-energy-probe/

Page 15: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

Power Button and Reset Button

● Manually power up/down and reset the 96Boards EE from the board

● External switches for power on/off and for hard reset○ Use the specified pins on the low speed bus connector

● Configure the 96Boards EE to power up automatically○ In case of external power off/on cycles

Page 16: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

Miscellaneous

● External Fan Connection○ A 12V PC style external fan connection

■ SYS_DCIN (12V nominal) line on the Standard EE version. A standard Molex KK connector part no 22-23-2031 or equivalent

● JTAG optional○ 10-pin JTAG connector recommended

● 4 Green User LEDs○ Directly programmable from the SoC

Page 17: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

Expansion Connector● 96Boards low speed expansion connector shall be

implemented● Standardized access to maker/developer facilities

○ GPIO, I2C, SPI/SD and IoT devices○ 85x54mm board○ 40 pin low profile female 2mm receptacle (20x2) 4.5mm height○ UART0, UART1 (optional), SPI bus, I2C x2, I2S/PCM audio

(optional), GPIO x12, Reset and Power button, 1.8V, 5V and DC_IN power supplies

● Pin-out compatible with 96Boards Consumer Edition● GPIO-A wake up from sleep/standby

Page 18: SFO15-108: 96Boards Enterprise Edition Introduction

SATA and PCIe

● Optional though highly recommended● SATA

○ on the designer I/O connector area● PCIe

○ 1-16 channels○ If provided, a 16-lane connector shall be in the

specified location and orientation○ PCIe Mini and/or M.2 connector(s) may be installed

on the top or underside
