Xilinx demos, ships Zynq-7000 devices
December 09, 2011 // Colin Holland
At the ARM European Technical Conference (AETC), Xilinx Inc., has announced it is now shipping its Zynq-7000 Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) devices and provided the first public demonstration the devices which where running a Linux-based application.
The Zynq-7020 EPP initial samples are shipping now to participants of the Early Access program, with production qualified parts on track to begin shipping in the second half of 2012.
"It's exciting to see early access customers take what they've accomplished since we first launched the Extensible Processing Platform program in April 2010 and apply their systems to these first devices," said Lawrence Getman, Vice President of Processing at Xilinx.
The Zynq-7000 family combines an industry-standard ARM dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore processing system with Xilinx's scalable 28nm programmable logic architecture. It supports parallel development of software for the dual-core Cortex-A9 processor-based system and custom accelerators and peripherals in the programmable logic.
One of the first users to describe use of the device is Bernd Liebetrau, Head of CoC Digital Integration at Rohde & Schwarz, who said, "The platform approach allows us to customize each device to meet our various application needs while at the same time enabling us to leverage the software developments over multiple products. Rohde & Schwarz has always been at the forefront of technology and being an early adopter and receiving early samples of the Zynq-7000 EPP is a significant milestone for us."
Michael Fawcett, CTO of iVeia, added, "We were very excited to receive our first Zynq-7020 devices. Our Atlas-I-Z7e will be the first computer-on-module to host a Zynq device and will drop into existing sockets for Android handheld, digital radio, and video processing applications. We fully expect to be able to demonstrate such applications within a few months, a credit to Xilinx's early access support, tools, and emulation platform."
