Happy Thursday everyone! Hope everyone’s week has been going well. With every day that passes, we get more and more excited for the official start of X-Fest 2012, which is assured to be an awesome experience for all who attend.
There has been incredible buzz surrounding Zynq these past couple of months, and it’s going to be at X-Fest where many people will actually receive their first glimpse of what this new technology has to offer. A huge part of the knowledge and expertise on the Zynq 7000 line of products will be shared exclusively in the four courses that make up our Zynq Track. In today’s overview, we will be looking at a course entitled “Introduction to the Zynq™-7000 Extensible Processing Platform.”
The Zynq-7000 is a new class of product, combining an industry-standard ARM® dual-core Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processing system with the unified architecture of Xilinx 28nm programmable logic. This processor-centric architecture offers the flexibility and scalability of an FPGA combined with ASIC-like performance and power and the ease of use of an ASSP. This course introduces hardware and software engineers to the Xilinx Zynq-7000 device architecture and development tools. Additionally, several example designs will be provided to show how the Zynq-7000 device can be used in a variety of system solutions.
Essentially, we would recommend this course to everyone attending and we anticipate this to be one of our hottest classes. By attending this class, one will learn the skills necessary to utilize the Zynq 7000 in any of their own projects. The Zynq 7000 is considered to be the latest in cutting edge technology, and that is something that you definitely don’t want to miss out on.
