Let's Get Started with the Zynq 7000 Using the AVNET MiniZed Dev Board

Listen to Nick Hartl, AVNET's Xilinx FAE, speak about the Xilinx Zynq 7000 and the MiniZed development board. He'll give you some tips and resources so you can get started developing with the Zynq. It's a unique chance to learn about the Zynq 7000 and the MiniZed; the information presented will be exclusive to this webinar.


This webinar is for anyone interested in building projects or developing new products with the Xilinx Zynq 7000 All Programmable SoC using the Avnet MiniZed Development Board. It will touch on the main points of working with an All Programmable SoC. Finally, it will also discuss where to get the resources and documentation to help you.


What the Attendee Will Learn


  • Overview of the Xilinx Zynq 7000 All Programmable SoC
  • Comparison FPGA, Processor and SoC
  • MiniZed Dev Board Overview
  • Build Tools: Vivado Design Suite; Software/Hardware Integration
  • What You Can Do with the MiniZed Development Board
  • Resources: Where To Go For More Information, Tutorials, etc.


This webinar is highly recommended for anyone interested in RoadTesting the AVNET MiniZed Dev Board, which will launch for enrollment in November.


PLUS ...The ZYNQ Book Giveaway....


During the webinar, we will be giving away three copies of The ZYNQ Book. It's a 450 page book that covers all aspects of Zynq development from hardware to software, theory to implementation. The Zynq Book also features a companion set of tutorials. The book has been written in an approachable manner, so that beginners or experienced developers alike can pick it up and find what they need. The Giveaway is only open to those who attend the webinar.




Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC

The Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC (AP SoC) family integrates the software programmability of an ARM®-based processor with the hardware programmability of an FPGA, enabling key analytics and hardware acceleration while integrating CPU, DSP, ASSP, and mixed signal functionality on a single device. Consisting of single-core Zynq-7000S and dual-core Zynq-7000 devices, the Zynq-7000 family is the best price to performance-per-watt fully scalable SoC platform for your unique application requirements.




The MiniZed™ is a single-core Zynq 7Z007S development board. This board targets entry-level Zynq developers with a low-cost prototyping platform.
