Embedded Design with PetaLinux Tools | Online





Course Description

Provides embedded systems developers with experience in creating an embedded Linux system targeting a Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC  processor development board using PetaLinux Tools.

The course provides experience with:

  • Building the environment and booting the system using a Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC with PetaLinux Tools on the ARM® Cortex™-A53 processor
  • Using open-source embedded Linux components
  • Configuring the Linux environment and network components
  • Debugging embedded Linux platforms

The primary focus is on embedded Linux development in conjunction with the Xilinx tool flow.

* This course focuses on the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC. Check with your local Authorized Training Provider for the specifics of the in-class lab board or other customizations.

After completing this comprehensive training, you will have the necessary skills to:

  • Explain what an embedded Linux kernel is
  • Describe the Linux device driver architecture
  • Create a PetaLinux project to configure and build an image
  • Create a working ARM Cortex-A53 processor Linux system using the Vivado Design Suite and PetaLinux tools
  • List various hardware interfacing options available for the ARM Cortex-A53 processor
  • Build custom hardware cores and device drivers using the user space I/O (UIO) framework
