The PicoZed module contains the core requirements to support SoC design including memory, configuration, Ethernet, USB, and clocks. It provides easy access to over 100 user I/O pins through three I/O connectors on the backside of the module. These connectors can support dedicated interfaces for Ethernet, USB, JTAG, power and other control signals, as well as the GTP/GTX transceivers on the 7015/7030 models. The transceiver based 7015 and 7030 versions of PicoZed are a superset of the 7010/7020 version, adding four high-speed serial transceiver ports to the I/O connectors. You can design your own carrier card, plug-in a PicoZed, and start application development with a proven Zynq-7000 AP SoC sub-system. Product Brief (Datasheet)

These tutorials provide a means to integrate several different technologies on a single platform. Using the Avnet target boards, we have the power of ARM processors, combined with the unrivaled flexibility of Xilinx programmable logic to implement custom hardware systems. We use a Linux kernel as the foundation operating system running on the processor cores which enables a very large ecosystem of software to be run on our development kits. Virtual machines can provide a very convenient Ubuntu development environment for building the hardware platform and cross-compiling software to target the Processing System.
