Overview:
The Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC
represents a relatively new alternative in the embedded landscape that addresses
these challenges in a different way. This innovative device allows you to make
hardware and software tradeoffs throughout the design phase and even after the
design has shipped. The Zynq All Programmable SoC has a unique architecture that
combines dual ARM Cortex-A9 processor cores with programmable hardware and
programmable I/O on one piece of silicon. The architecture leverages familiar,
SoC-like design tools and methodologies through the Vivado Design Suite, which
provides multiple design entry points in C, C++, HDL, System C, MatLab, and
LabView so that system architects and designers can enter the design flow at a
familiar level. Vivado allows you to rapidly prototype and make tradeoffs
throughout the product lifecycle and to leverage software and logic IP from
existing designs to reduce the required time and effort needed to bring a
product to market.

This Webinar will cover:

  • How to analyze a design and determine the software that would benefit from
    acceleration
  • How to develop and integrate a hardware accelerator
  • An overview of the Vivado tool suite showing the complete, step-by-step way
    to develop products using the Zynq platform

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.
