Delkin Devices SSD, Internal, M.2 2280 is featured for NVMe SSD capability to the UltraZed-EV!
What is NVMe? It is the industry standard for solid state drives (SSDs). The NVMe specification was designed specifically to optimize the performance of SSDs for much higher throughput and lower latency than legacy SATA drives.

Have you ever wanted or needed a way to add high speed and high capacity storage to your embedded Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC system? This new BSP adds the PCIe transceivers and logic via the Xilinx “DMA/Bridge Subsystem for PCI Express” IP to the programmable logic (PL) to enable the addition of a M.2 form-factor NVMe SSD to the system. This design uses the FPGADrive FMC adapter from Opsero to complete the connectivity to the Delkin 128 GB NVMe SSD used for tests and benchmarking. This particular SSD uses 2 PCIe lanes, but the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC design can be modified in Vivado to use up to 4 PCIe lanes (usually for larger capacity SSDs).
