Page 1 of 1
A community-oriented development kit for the Xilinx Zynq-7000 Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) is targeted for designers and students who are interested in exploring and prototyping their application ideas for the new Zynq-7000 EPP architecture.
Features of the ZedBoard include a Xilinx Zynq XC7Z020 EPP device with memory implemented as 512 Mbyte DDR3, 256 Mbit QSPI Flash and a 4 Gbyte SD Card. The ZedBoard also has onboard USB-JTAG programming. Interfaces include 10/100/1G Ethernet, USB OTG 2.0 and USB-UART plus PS & PL I/O expansion (FMC, Pmod, XADC). There is multiple display output capability in the form of 1080p HDMI, 8-bit VGA and 128x32 OLED and an I2S audio codec.
The ZedBoard kit includes the ZedBoard, power supply, USB cable and pre-configured SD card containing a bootable Linux reference design. ZedBoard.org will host additional user-created reference designs and projects, enabling the community of Zynq-7000 EPP designers to collaborate and share design ideas.
The ZedBoard serves as an evaluation and starter platform for engineers new to the Zynq-7000 EPP and its combination of an industry-standard ARM dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore processing system with Xilinx 28nm programmable logic. The ZedBoard delivers a balance of features, low risk and low costs to engineers designing for a wide range of control, bridging, communications and intelligent video applications. The commercial version of the ZedBoard is available from Avnet for $395.
