Zynq UltraScale+ XCZU7EV-2FFVC1156 MPSoC
The onboard System Controller reads FRU data on the EEPROM of the connected FMC card, and sets the VADJ voltage accordingly.
Boot mode is determined by DIP switch SW6.
If you want to develop smart vision applications using Raspberry Pi cameras, the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, we’ve just released some code and the hardware to help you get started. For the launch of our new RPi Camera FMC, we’ve ported the Kria Vitis Platforms and Overlays over to the ZCU106 armed with an RPi Camera FMC. The result is that you can now build and develop the Smartcam and NLP-Smartvision applications in Certified Ubuntu 22. [Read More]
How to build the Hardware Platform for Certified Ubuntu 20.04 LTS for ZCU106
With the objective of customizing it
This post is a continuation of the previous post where we setup our ZCU106 board for Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. In this post we’re going to build the hardware platform that is built into the Certified Ubuntu 20.04 LTS images for the ZCU106 board. The reason that we would want to be able to do this is so that we can customize the hardware platform - perhaps add functionality, add external connections, or add accelerator IP. [Read More]
Certified Ubuntu 20.04 LTS running on ZCU106
In this post we’re going to download the Certified Ubuntu 20.04 LTS image for the ZCU106 board and get it running on the hardware. This is a fairly simple post but I’ve got to write it up in preparation for future posts where we will dig deeper into this exciting new way of developing applications for Zynq UltraScale+ devices. Here’s what you’ll need: ZCU106 Zynq UltraScale+ Development board SanDisk 32GB microSD card (or one with a fairly good capacity) USB keyboard and mouse connected to the ZCU106 USB webcam (if you want to try a video application at the end) USB hub (since ZCU106 has only one USB connector) DisplayPort cable connecting ZCU106 to a monitor Ethernet cable connecting to your network router Burn the ZCU10x Ubuntu image to an SD card Start by downloading Ubuntu 20.

NVMe SSD Speed test on the ZCU106 Zynq Ultrascale+ in PetaLinux
Update 2020-02-07: Missing Link Electronics has released their NVMe Streamer product for NVMe offload to the FPGA, maximum SSD performance, and they have an example design that works with FPGA Drive FMC! Probably the most common question that I receive about our SSD-to-FPGA solution is: what are the maximum achievable read/write speeds? A complete answer to this question would require a whole other post, but instead for today I’m going to show you what speeds we can get with a simple but highly flexible setup that doesn’t use any paid IP.
