Overview:
Learn more about the Xilinx Zynq™-7000 family, the industry’s first Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) developed to achieve the levels of processing and compute performance required in high-end embedded applications targeting markets such as video surveillance, automotive driver assistance, factory automation and many others. Supported by an extensive ecosystem of tools and IP providers, the Zynq-7000 EPP family tightly integrates a complete ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processor-based system with 28nm, low-power programmable logic for system architects and embedded software developers to extend, customize, optimize and differentiate their systems. 

In this webcast, attendees will learn about:

  • Key challenges in embedded processing system design and how the Zynq-7000 family addresses these while providing flexibility
  • Features of the processing system and programmable logic enabling designers to build customized extensible embedded systems
  • Tool flow for developing with Zynq-7000 devices and how these flows are used today
  • ARM ecosystem to maximize productivity and ease development for software and hardware developers
