Designing Advanced Embedded Systems with Xilinx Zynq: How to Break Software Bottlenecks with Accelerators
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.
- 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.
