I got ZED board

September 5, 2012

I got the ZED board I ordered 3 months ago today.

So far so good, hope I can find time doing some interesting projects with ZED and KC705.


The following command is used to turn on LED LD0:
echo 1 > /sys/class/gpio/gpio61/value

Zynq EPP

April 10, 2012

I went to annual Xilinx Technical Seminar today on Xilinx campus.

This year’s topic is all about Zynq. Here’s what I knew from the seminar.

ISE 14.1 will be out in about 2 weeks, it will bundle Rodin (currently in Beta 4). Rodin significantly reduces build time (ISE 13.2/13 hours vs Beta 2/5 hours), and memory used (16G vs 9G ) in the example for XC7V2000T device.

The video demo was performed on a ZC702 board. The FPGA hardware was built with AutoESL, the high-level synthesis tool, based on C code. The hardware accelerated edge detection is playable, and much smoother than software only edge detection.

Some Zynq boards, including ZED, are listed from Boards and Kits section from Xilinx website:

I was told ZC702 should be available to order in summer.
