Avnet’s MiniZed based on single-core Xilinx Zynq Z-7007S is “coming soon” to a Web page near you

I got a heads up on a new, low-end dev board called the “MiniZed” coming soon from Avnet and found out there’s a pre-announcement Web page for the board. Avnet’s MiniZed is based on one of the new Zynq Z-7000S family members with one ARM Cortex-A9 processor. It will include both WiFi and Bluetooth RF transceivers and, according to the MiniZed Web page, will cost less than $100!

 

Here’s the link to the MiniZed Web page and here’s a slightly fuzzy MiniZed board photo:

If I’m not mistaken, that’s an Arduino header footprint and two Digilent Pmod headers on the board, which means that a lot of pretty cool shields and Pmods are already available for this board (minus the software drivers, at least for the Arduino shields).

 

 

I know you’ll want more information about the MiniZed board but I simply don’t have it. So please contact Avnet for more information or register for the info on the MiniZed Web page.
