Xilinx University Program Workshop on
Designing Xilinx Zynq-based Systems with SDSoC
The Zynq-7000 all-programmable SoCs enable extensive system-level differentiation, integration and flexibility through hardware, software and I/O programmability.
This hands-on workshop covers the development of high-performance ARM + FPGA applications using Zynq devices, working entirely within a software development environment. After a very brief introduction to the Zynq architecture, we will focus on the application development process using SDSoC to target heterogeneous compute platforms like Zynq.
Lab exercises will reintroduce attendees to the familiar design steps of identifying program hot-spots, optimizing code to improve performance and cross-compiling the application. We will use SDSoC to build not just the application binaries, but also hardware accelerators in programmable logic that communicate with the CPU and external memory through an application-specific data motion network comprised of DMAs, interconnects and other standard IP blocks. You will instrument code to measure application performance and estimate overall speed-up of moving code from software into programmable logic.
Who should attend?
Professors who are familiar with Xilinx all-programmable technology and wish to find out about the new SDSoc design methodology
Skills to be gained
