If you know Python, you can develop your own reconfigurable embedded system based on Xilinx programmable SoCs (system-on-chip) without being an expert in hardware design languages such as Verilog. PYNQ is an open-source framework that makes programmable SoCs easier-to-use and more accessible to new FPGA users through a browser-based development environment for Python, while increasing productivity for more experienced users by helping them create, document and distribute designs more effectively.


This webinar is ideal for both beginner and experienced users to FPGAs. The webinar will introduce and demonstrate the PYNQ framework as well as provide an overview of the PYNQ-Z2PYNQ-Z2  development board from TUL, a perfect entry-level Xilinx SoC board to get started with PYNQ.
