Video presentations of the four-part MiniZed SpeedWay Design Workshop interactive series organised by Avnet, are now available online. The MiniZed SpeedWay Design Workshops are designed 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 workshops teach developers the basics of both hardware and software integration using the MiniZed platform, as well as the latest design flows from Xilinx’s Vivado Design Suite.
The training also provides participants with techniques to integrate the HTU21D peripheral module from TE Connectivity (TE).
Avnet will continue to offer the live MiniZed SpeedWay Design Workshops in select locations throughout North America, Europe and Asia during the first half of 2018.
For those customers who cannot attend the live events, or those who are interested in refresher course, available on-demand resources will include two introductory courses: Developing Zynq Hardware and Developing Zynq Software, as well as two advanced course offerings for more experienced designers: Integrating Sensors on MiniZed with PetaLinux and A Practical Guide to Getting Started with Xilinx SDSoC.
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 design compact 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.
