Course Overview

The Xilinx Zynq® All Programmable System on a Chip (SoC) provides a new level of system design capabilities. This course provides experienced system architects with the knowledge to effectively architect a Zynq All Programmable SoC.This course presents the features and benefits of the Zynq architecture for making decisions on how to best architect a Zynq All Programmable SoC project. It covers the architecture of the ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor-based processing system (PS) and the connections to the programmable logic (PL) at a sufficiently deep level that a system designer can successfully and effectively utilize the Zynq All Programmable SoC.
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.
