Overview:
The Xilinx All Programmable SoC, Zynq-7000
represents a relatively new alternative in the embedded landscape. It does not
face the same challenges as traditional processors, ASSPs, and SoC’s because
this innovative device is designed to be leveraged across multiple markets in
multiple products while permitting customization through software, hardware,
interconnect, and I/O. The Zynq All Programmable SoC has a unique architecture
that combines dual ARM Cortex A9 processor cores with programmable logic and
programmable I/O that takes advantage of familiar, SoC-like design tools and
methodologies.

Who should attend:
This technology Webinar is appropriate
for embedded system architects, software engineers, hardware engineers, and
technical project managers seeking ways to meet tough design objectives quickly
and efficiently with a minimum of design risk.

This webinar will
cover:

  • The current landscape for embedded design alternatives: embedded processors,
    ASSPs, SoCs, and All Programmable SoCs
  • The types of systems that particularly benefit from the combined processing
    and I/O capabilities of Zynq All Programmable SoCs
  • How the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC and the Vivado Design Suite
    permit the rapid and efficient development of sophisticated, single-chip
    hardware/software systems.
