Before we jump into the design phase let's take a closer look at the Zynq-7000 family.
The Zynq™-7000 family is Xilinx's first Extensible Processing Platform (EPP). This new class of product combines an industry-standard ARM® dual-core Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processing system with Xilinx unified 28 nm architecture. This processor-centric architecture offers the flexibility and scalability of an FPGA combined with ASIC-like performance and power and the ease of use of an ASSP. For more information go to the Xilinx web page.
The application processor unit in Zynq consists of two ARM Cortex-A9 processor cores. The ARM Cortex-A9 processor is the power-efficient and popular high performance choice in low power or thermally constrained cost-sensitive devices. For more information start here.
The Zynq-7000 AP SoC Solution Center is available to address all questions related to the Zynq-7000 AP SoC. Whether you are starting a new design with Zynq-7000 AP SoC or troubleshooting a problem, use the Zynq-7000 AP SoC solution center to guide you to the right information.
