Thank you to everyone who participated and we apologize for the delays. We are pleased the following winners:
First Place Prizes: The winner of the $200 Gift Card goes to yuricts for Taylor waves - WaveDrom demonstration on the PYNQ framework + Ping Pong trainer, beacon_dave for PYNQ-Z2 Workshop - AXI GPIO and PYNQ-Z2 Workshop - PS GPIO , and riklaunim with Using PYNQ as user interface/user experience platform!
The element14 community is proud to welcome Adam Taylor, author of the MicroZed Chronicles, to present a hands-on workshop featuring the PYNQ-Z2. If you follow along with Adam, for all three workshops, he'll walk you through everything you need to do to build an Embedded Vision application. PYNQ is an open source project started by Xilinx, which fuses the productivity of Python with the acceleration provided by programmable logic within the Zynq / Zynq MPSoC. The PYNQ-Z2 board that you will need in order to follow along with this workshop is a good board to get started using PYNQ because its got a strong community supporting it and it has Arduino and Raspberry Pi compatibility.
To complete this lab series, you will need the following Hardware:
- greater than or equal to 16 GB
Not Included in Kit: You will also need an HDMI camera such as:
- HDMI Camera (Any camera as long as HDMI Output is 720p or lower!)
To be able to complete these three labs you will need the following software on your development machine:
Each workshop session will walk you through everything you need to know to go from a Zero to a Hero using the PYNQ-Z2 board. In between each session you'll be given missions where you can earn badges and win free swag prizes for blogging about PYNQ experience. We'll set up a workshop space in Project14 but you're free to blog anywhere on the community as long as you use the assigned tags for your blog. During the final mission, 3 First Place Winners will receive a $200 Amazon Gift Card for having the most creative and original Embedded Vision project.
In the spirit of open-source, we want to be as inclusive as possible and make sure that everyone has an opportunity learn while having fun and being creative. No experience required. We've even put together a short quiz based on Free material on pynq.io and the book Exploring Zynq MPSoC Book which you can download a free PDF copy of on the Xilinx site.
