 A YouTube video maker with the handle “takeshi i” has just posted an 18-minute video titled “IoT basics with ZYBO (Zynq)” that demonstrates an IoT design created with a $199 Digilent Zybo Z7 dev board based on a Xilinx Zynq SoC. (Note: It's a silent video.)

 

First, the YouTube video demonstrates the IoT design interacting with an app on a mobile phone. Then video takes you step-by-step through the creation process using the Xilinx Vivado development environment.

 

The YouTuber writes:

 

“I implemented a web server using Python and bottle framework, which works with another C++ application. The C++ application controls my custom IPs (such as PWM) implemented in PL block. A user can control LEDs, 3-color LEDs, buttons and switches mounted on ZYBO board.”

 

The YouTube video’s Web page also lists the resources you need to recreate the IoT design:
