More from Adam Taylor about Zynq and SDSoC: “Zynq is a device every embedded system designer should be familiar with”

Adam Taylor publishes the MicroZed Chronicles weekly in the Xcell Daily blog so you are likely familiar with his writing. Adam has just published an article about SDSoC and Zynq titled “High-level synthesis comes of age with SDSoC” on the Embedded.com Web site. Here’s his motivation for writing this article:


“…Zynq is a device every embedded system designer should be familiar with and considering for their application. At its heart the Zynq is not a FPGA with embedded processors -- like previous generations of FPGA with Power PCs -- but a true embedded processor with very flexible interfacing capabilities (DDR, CAN, UART, USB, Giga Bit Ethernet, SPI and I2C to name a few). What separates the Zynq from other embedded processors is the attached programmable logic, and with SDSoC embedded system developers can exploit this pretty simply…


SDSoC takes the eclipse front end, Vivado HLS, Vivado and a lot of behind the scenes intelligence to create seamlessly the option to accelerate software functions in the attached programmable logic of the device.”


What follows is a simple explanation of what SDSoC brings to the party from a design engineer’s perspective.
