Zynq™-7000 SoC XC7Z010-1CLG400

Getting Started with the MYIR Z-turn

In this video I create a simple Vivado design for the MYIR Z-turn Zynq SoM and we run a hello world application on it, followed by the lwIP echo server. We connect the Z-turn to a network, then we use “ping” and “telnet” to test the echo server from a PC that is connected to the same network. If you want to try it out yourself, download the SD card boot files here: [Read More]

Comparison of Zynq SoMs

Comparison of Zynq SoMs
In the last year or so, there has been an explosion in the availability of System-on-Modules (SoMs) featuring the popular FPGA+ARM combo Zynq-7000 SoC from Xilinx. I’ve always promoted the idea that FPGAs and SoCs allow for faster design cycles and rapid proof-of-concept, but these SoMs take that advantage to another level. Let me explain why. In the past, I would handle most projects by doing a proof-of-concept on an evaluation board, then designing a custom board that integrates all the required components onto a single PCB. [Read More]
