Registration has opened for a series of interactive SpeedWay Design Workshops organised by Avnet Silica to help engineers jump-start the development of single-core Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC devices using the Avnet MiniZed Zynq SoC development kit, a cost-optimised prototyping platform for embedded vision and Industrial IoT systems.

The one-day instructional programs, which will be staged across Europe, will train customers on the latest design flows using Xilinx’s Vivado Design Suite through a mix of lecture and interactive labs.

Avnet’s MiniZed Zynq SoC development kit showcases the power of the single-core Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC devices, which feature a single-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor paired with 28nm Artix-7 based programmable logic.

MiniZed features on-board connectivity through USB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth and a compact design that is small enough to fit into a shirt pocket.

Peripherals can be plugged into dual Pmod-compatible connectors, the Arduino-compatible shield interface or the USB 2.0 host interface.

Workshop attendees will have the opportunity to integrate the HTU21D peripheral module from TE Connectivity (TE), and explore the results through the interactive lab sessions.

For designers new to Xilinx SoC technology and tools, or those looking to brush up their skills, Avnet Silica will offer two introductory courses: Developing Zynq Hardware and Developing Zynq Software.

More experienced designers can choose from two advanced course offerings: Integrating Sensors on MiniZed with PetaLinux and A Practical Guide to Getting Started with Xilinx SDSoC development environment.

“Avnet’s MiniZed SpeedWay Design Workshops teach developers the basics of both hardware and software integration using the MiniZed platform,” said Jim Beneke, vice president, engineering and technology, Avnet. “With this training, engineers will have the technology, tools and design expertise they need to more quickly capture the benefits of the single-core Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC, which is one of the industry’s most flexible, scalable and secure platforms for cost-sensitive as well as high-performance applications.”
