RS-Online has a running series of design articles and a new one written by Adam Taylor titled “Software Defined SoC on Arty Z7-20, Xilinx ZYNQ evaluation board” tells you how to get started with the Xilinx SDSoC Development Environment using the Digilent Arty Z7-20, which is based on a a Zynq Z-7020 SoC. What’s great about SDSoC is that it lets you program code on the Zynq SoC’s dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processors and accelerate specific tasks using the Zynq SoC’s programmable logic, all while using C, C++, or OpenCL.

The other great thing is that the Digilent Arty Z7-20 with a voucher for SDSoC costs a mere $219 from Digilent.


You can’t find a more cost-effective way of learning how to use FPGA-based hardware acceleration to break performance bottlenecks in your embedded designs.


For more information about the Digilent Arty Z7, see “Arty Z7: Digilent’s new Zynq SoC trainer and dev board—available in two flavors for $149 or $209.”
