Programming the ZYNQ All Programmable SoC
Wednesday December 5, 2012, 09:20 - 10:20 | Room: Kilimandjaro
The Zynq-7000 family combines an ARM® dual-core Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processing system with programmable logic on a single chip. This architecture allows the device to boot like a processor and load custom hardware or accelerators when the CPU is running. This class of All Programmable device gives designers increased flexibility, performance and BOM cost reduction. But there are challenges in programming these new class of Heterogeneous Systems. This session focuses on listing the various challenges from Hardware-Software partitioning to addressing these challenges to design an optimized system by leveraging open source or industry standard tools and framework.
