The Legend of Zed: A Tour of ZedBoard



From ZedBoard to UltraZed, learn a brief history and how you can take advantage of Zed in your next project.


lIn 2011, the Zynq-7000 ushered in a new paradigm for Xilinx, coupling world-class programmable logic with Arm processors. Avnet followed close behind with their first development board based on this technology – the 2012 ZedBoard. Since then, Avnet has released more than 20 “Zed” branded products featuring both the Zynq-7000 and newer Zynq UltraScale+ architectures from Xilinx. This webinar will cover a brief history of Avnet’s work with Zynq-based products, and, more importantly, provide guidance on features, capabilities, and price that may help you decide which Zed product best fits in your next project.


What You Will Learn In This Webinar:


  • Brief history of Zed products at Avnet
  • MiniZed
  • MicroZed and PicoZed
  • UltraZed and Ultra96
  • The future of Avnet’s Zed family



The Presenters:


Kevin Keryk, Marketing Manager at AvnetBryan Fletcher, Technical Marketing Director at Avnet

Kevin Keryk is a computer engineer by degree, a technical marketing manager by day, and embedded software programming addict from an impressionable age which has turned into a mostly healthy fascination with FPGAs, Programmable Logic, and other hardware craft over the past 10 years at Avnet. He now leads a small but agile group of Machine Learning Engineers who specialize in AI at the Edge applications across a wide range of advanced devices.

I've been a fan of programmable logic technology since early in my career at Hewlett-Packard and Evans & Sutherland. I work now in Avnet's Products & Emerging Technologies group, currently working on Ultra96-V2, after working on many development boards over the years and as a Field Applications Engineer.
