could I adjust the frequency of ynq-7000 SOC below 667MHz

Jump to solution

I want  to know whether Zynq-7000 SOC can work at 667MHzm, 800MHz and 1GHz or not. And could I adjust the frequency of A9 core below 667MHz and make this SOC work normally? I want to make SOC work at low frequentcy and low energy consumption. if we can adjust the frequency of A9 core below 667MHz, what do I need to do? Need I modified a lot of code of driver or something else.

Thank you

Hi @jeepe,

 

for Question "I want  to know whether Zynq-7000 SOC can work at 667MHzm, 800MHz and 1GHz or not"?

 

Yes, Zynq can work upto 1 GHz but it limited for only Z-7030, Z-7035,Z-7054 with speed grade -3. check below clock_zynq.PNG

 

could I adjust the frequency of A9 core below 667MHz and make this SOC work normally? 

Yes, you can adjust the core frequency below 667 MHz. 

see the below image

Here the range is from 50-800 MHz , you can set the core frequency in between these frequencies and no need to modify driver codes or any other stuff.

 

 

Best Regards,
Srikanth

Thank you very much, and what can I do if I want to realize a low energy consumption FPGA board except adjust the frequency. For example, can i modify voltage supply or something else. (I don't care about the working speed no matter how bad it is)

Hi @jeepe,

 

Please check this AR61980   https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/61980.html

Here it is discussed about the  low energy consumption techniques for the Zynq7000 devices.
