The I/O Carrier Card provides easy access to the full 108 or 123 user I/O available from the MicroZed SOM, offering connections compatible with industry-standard hardware in the form of twelve Digilent Pmod™ compatible interfaces and with features on the I/O Carrier Card, such as push-buttons, power-supplies, LEDs, and an on-board oscillator. The I/O Carrier Card includes Maxim Integrated power technology that users can leverage to get a quick start on their power supply design.
