About:Through Avnet, Xilinx and Element14, a training program to learn about the Zynq 7000 platform which is System On Chip combining an FPGA with an ARM processor. This comes to the students as complete development board packed with goodies like a wireless chip from MuRata (BT/BTLE/WIFI), 8GB Flash memory, onboard RAM, USB to JTAG (JTAG programmable over USB), Arduino-style headers (3.3V compatible only), Microphone, Bi-Color LED, and two additional expansion ports.   See all blog posts fo ...

Well I had to spend a week on-site with a customer and another week at a trade show; but I'm back!   I'm happy to report that I got Vivado 2017.4 installed. I followed the instructions in this "experiment" to install the dev environment... although I was a little worried why Xilinx considers installing software an experiment...   I started by creating an account on the Xilinx website. It was a little tricky since they don't trust the apostrophe in my last name... The story of my li ...
I got the MiniZed in the mail yesterday as we can see from the very happy delivery person. In the box, we have the MinZed itself and a few pamphlets. We also get a USB Micro with three standard jumpers. One pamphlet is a software license so I can download and Activate Xilinx Design tools and activate them. The other is a quick start guide which I will demonstrate in the second video. I'm not sure yet where the jumpers are supposed to go...   Here are some Hi-Rez images of the board: & ...
First off, a huge thanks to Element14 and Xilinx / Avnet for sponsoring this program!     About me I would consider myself and electronics hobbyist and I currently work in the engineering field as an Applications Engineer at a packaging machinery company. I've done lots of personal projects with Arduino, RaspberryPi and the like. I have never really gotten into FPGAs although I have worked directly with FPGA developers and done field upgrades on them in my professional career. I thin ...
