Eclypse Z7: Zynq-7000 SoC Development Board with SYZYGY-compatible Expansion

Optimize productivity and accelerate design flow through Digilent Eclypse Z7. A perfect platform for instrumentation applications.

 

Digilent Eclypse Z7Eclypse Z7 is the first host board of the new Eclypse platform, showcasing modular functionality, high-speed I/O, and an FPGA SoC that blends power and flexibility for instrumentation applications. The Eclypse platform is more than a standard development board – it's a new way to streamline and accelerate design flow combined with a newly developed software architecture to create a powerful research and prototyping platform optimized for productivity and flexibility. In addition to a Zynq 7020 FPGA SoC from Xilinx, the Eclypse Z7 features two high-speed connectors using Opal Kelly’s new SYZYGY standard, which pairs with Digilent’s new Zmod family to allow for high performance I/O.

 

The hardware, however, is only part of the story of the Eclypse Eclypse Platform. Petalinux is supported out of the box, and pre-built Linux images are accompanied by a software API for bulk data transfer. The software architecture is completely open and customizable. This system allows new users to get started without touching the hardware until desired, and with support from a built-in high-level API, users can enjoy the benefits of hardware acceleration without having to directly interface with the FPGA.
