The Cora Z7 is our most cost-optimized SoC development board featuring the power and flexibility of Xilinx's Zynq®-7000 SoC family.
Featuring Arduino™ headers, 1Gbps Ethernet, an onboard analog-to-digital converter, and Pmod ports, the Cora Z7 can be used in a variety of embedded applications. The Zynq-7000(S) SoC family integrates the software programmability of an ARM®-based processor with the hardware programmability of an FPGA, delivering cost-optimized system integration. At such a friendly price point, the Cora Z7 is a great development board to get started with Zynq-based designs.
The Cora Z7 is supported by Xilinx's Vivado Design Suite, including the free WebPACK version. You can also interact with the processing system (PS) with Xilinx's Vitis Unified Software Platform and PetaLinux Tools.
There are two variants of the Cora Z7: the Cora Z7-07S and Cora Z7-10. The primary difference is that ARM Cortex™-A9 processor on the Cora Z7-07S is single-core, versus dual-core on the Cora Z7-10. See the Features tab for a side-by-side comparison of the two boards.
Guides and demos are available to help you get started quickly with the Cora Z7. These can be found through the Support Materials tab.

To create and modify designs for your Cora Z7, you can use Xilinx's Vivado Design Suite. Vivado is a software designed for the synthesis and analysis of HDL designs. Both variants of the Cora Z7 are supported by the free WebPACK edition of the Vivado Design Suite.
You can use Xilinx's PetaLinux Tools to customize, build, and deploy Embedded Linux solutions on the Zynq-7000(S). While the Vitis Unified Software Platform enables the development of embedded software and accelerated applications on heterogeneous Xilinx platforms, such as the Zynq-7000(S).
