Over the last few months I’ve been very busy thanks to the popularity of Xilinx’s Zynq SoC. Here’s the latest project I’ve been working on for Evans Analytical Group, a Zynq based controller for high-power burn-in of ASICs. This custom board uses the Zynq XC7Z020 which contains a Dual Core ARM processor plus FPGA programmable logic. With 1GB DDR3 memory, Gigabit Ethernet and an SD memory card, this board is a powerful System-on-Module that can be connected to a carrier card via 3 wide expansion connectors. The board makes use of the Zynq’s internal XADC and also contains an external ADC and DAC to provide analog I/O through the expansion connectors.
