Avnet’s MiniZed SpeedWay Design Workshops for Zynq Z-7000S based embedded design: Four different workshops in six different cities

Avnet’s MiniZed SpeedWay Design Workshops are designed to help you jump-start your embedded design capabilities using Xilinx Zynq Z-7000S All Programmable SoCs, which meld a processing system based on a single-core, 32-bit, 766MHz Arm Cortex-A9 processor with plenty of Xilinx FPGA fabric. Zynq SoCs are just the thing when you need to design high-performance embedded systems or need to use a processor along with some high-speed programmable logic. Even better, these Avnet workshops focus on using the Avnet MiniZed—a compact, $89 dev board packed with huge capabilities including built-in WiFi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. (For more information about the Avnet MiniZed dev board, see “Avnet’s $89 MiniZed dev board based on Zynq Z-7000S SoC includes WiFi, Bluetooth, Arduino—and SDSoC! Ships in July.”)

 

These workshops start in November and run through March of next year and there are four full-day workshops in the series:

 

  • Developing Zynq Software
  • Developing Zynq Hardware
  • Integrating Sensors on MiniZed with PetaLinux
  • A Practical Guide to Getting Started with Xilinx SDSoC

 

You can mix and match the workshops to meet your educational requirements. Here’s how Avnet presents the workshop sequence:

These workshops are taking place in cities all over North America including Austin, Dallas, Chicago, Montreal, Seattle, and San Jose, CA. All cities will host the first two workshops. Montreal and San Jose will host all four workshops.

 

A schedule for workshops in other countries has yet to be announced. The Web page says “Coming soon” so please contact Avnet directly for more information.

 

Finally, here’s a 1-minute YouTube video with more information about the workshops
