Introduction to the Zynq SoC Architecture / Includes ZedBoard



Course Description

Each student purchasing this version of the course receives the original ZedBoard for take-home.  The ZedBoard demo and development platform includes the Xilinx  ZYNQ™-7000 SOC XC7Z020-CLG484-1 device.

This course provides hardware and firmware engineers with the knowledge to effectively utilize a Zynq® System on a Chip (SoC). It covers the architecture of the ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor-based processing system (PS) and the integration of programmable logic (PL).

The course details the individual components that comprise the PS: I/O peripherals, timers, caching, DMA, interrupt, and memory controllers. Emphasis is placed on effective access and usage of the PS DDR controller from PL user logic, efficient PL-to-PS interfacing, and design techniques, tradeoffs, and advantages of implementing functions in the PS or the PL.



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

    • Describe the architecture and components that comprise the Zynq SoC processing system (PS)
    • Evaluate a processing system (PS) and programmable logic (PL) AXI interface
    • Identify the boot options for the Zynq SoC
