PHOENIX -- April 22, 2014

Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT),
today released the Industrial MicroZed™ System-on-Module (SOM), the MicroZed
Cost-Optimized (CO) SOM and the MicroZed Single Board Computer (SBC). This
expands on the existing MicroZed portfolio, which previously consisted of
MicroZed 7010 and MicroZed 7020 SOMs, as well as the MicroZed 7010 Evaluation
Kit. The evaluation kit targets new users and includes additional licensing,
documentation and tutorials. The remainder of the MicroZed portfolio is
intended to be designed into developers’ final products.

All boards in the MicroZed portfolio are based on the Xilinx® Zynq®-7000 All
Programmable SoC. The Industrial MicroZed consists of both 7010 and 7020
versions and is designed for safe and reliable operation under extreme
temperatures (-40°C to +85°C). The MicroZed CO SOM is based on the original
MicroZed SOM and is optimized for exclusive usage with a carrier. In contrast,
the MicroZed SBC is designed to support standalone operation, including the
capability to self-power expansion connectors for placement of
application-specific expansion modules. Due to its small form factor, MicroZed
SBC is a great option for engineers designing a small, Zynq-based embedded
product. The MicroZed SBC is offered in both 7010 and 7020 versions and
targets both commercial and extended temperature grades.

Target applications for MicroZed include general Zynq-7000 All Programmable
SoC evaluation and prototyping, embedded SOM applications, embedded vision,
test and measurement, motor control and software-defined radio.

“MicroZed allows designers to start with a single platform and grow with it as
they progress in their SoC development and learning process,” said Jim Beneke,
vice president of global technical marketing for Avnet Electronics Marketing.
“By meeting industrial standards, MicroZed can be used in weather stations,
data loggers, airplanes, factory automation -- and many other applications
that need to withstand harsh environments. As an SBC, MicroZed can be adopted
into compact embedded environments.”

Common MicroZed features across the entire portfolio:

• Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC
• 1 GB of DDR3 SDRAM
• 128 Mb of QSPI Flash
• Micro SD card interface
• 10/100/1000 Ethernet
• USB 2.0
• UART
• User I/O (via dual board-to-board connectors)
  o 100 User I/O (50 per connector)
    o Configurable as up to 48 LVDS pairs or 100 single-ended I/O
• JTAG configuration port
• 33.33 MHz oscillator

Order entry for Industrial MicroZed, MicroZed CO and MicroZed SBC  is open.
