Like the original Xilinx Zynq SoC, the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC combines multiple hardened ARM processor cores with Xilinx programmable logic to produce an enhanced application processor that can tackle a broad range of high-performance tasks that cannot be achieved using software alone using on-chip, FPGA-boosted hardware accelerators.
The Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC simply has a lot more of everything including:
Large arrays of Xilinx UltraScale+ programmable logic including the new, larger embedded UltraRAM blocks; a large number of UltraScale DSP48E2 slices; and hardened, integrated PCIe Gen2/Gen3/Gen4 and 100G Ethernet blocks
Xilinx programmable I/O that can handle anything from simple logic pins to high-speed PCIe and 100G+ Ethernet serial protocols
