HX5 Zynq All Programmable SoC: Hardware and Software Design

This course explains how to design a System on Chip (SoC) based on the Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC

  • Describing how to build a complete Embedded System based on the Zynq (Processing System with an ARM Cortex-A9MP Core + FPGA)
  • Describing the Zynq Implementation, the Vivado IP Integrator tool and the Software Development Kit (SDK) tools to create a hardware platform and the software to program it
  • Working with Xilinx tools like Chipscope and the SDK Remote Debugging to debug the Software and the Hardware
  • Booting the Linux Kernel on the platform and Executing Linux OS based Applications
