Sign up for our Upcoming Webinar and Zero to Hero Workshop Series on PYNQ.
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. Until recently, a programmable logic solution required advanced digital design skills which limited its accessibility to software developers. PYNQ is a game-changer because it enables the performance of programmable logic provided by Xilinx heterogeneous SoCs to be leveraged using Python, without the need to learn the digital design skills. Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world, and a language that is very familiar to Pi enthusiasts. Its also the second most popular language on the community, according to the poll below, trailing the C programming language and just ahead of the Arduino programming environment.
Python Productivity for Zynq, or PYNQ, has the ability to present programmable logic circuits as hardware libraries called overlays. These overlays are analogous to software libraries. A software engineer can select the overlay that best matches their application. The overlay can be accessed through an application programming interface (API). Using existing community overlays, this course will examine how a beginner can experiment with neural networks using PYNQ on Ultra96. The course will then point you to the best resources to begin your own PYNQ journey!
On April 8th, 2020 at 11 AM CT // 4 PM GMT: Join us as to learn more about Using Python Overlays to Experiment with Neural Networks from Fred Kellerman and Bryan Fletcher from Avnet:
Join us for a hands-on workshop with Adam Taylor, author of the MicroZed Chronicles, who will take you from Zero to Hero with using the PYNQ-Z2 board. Over the course of three sessions, you'll learn everything you need to know to get started and build an embedded vision application. No experience required.
What You'll Need to Participate:
This workshop combines 3 build-along workshops with Adam Taylor with "homework" assignments to do in between each session. This gives you a chance to apply what you learned during the workshop while preparing you the next session. Along the way you can earn badges for participation and a prize for the best finished project after the last session. You'll need the following tools to get started:
- HDMI Camera e.g. ApeMan Camera
Win a $200 Gift Card:
In-between sessions, blog about your learning experience to win badges, free swag, and a chance to win one of three $200 Gift Card for completing your own embedded vision application. To qualify you will need to do the following:
- Attend all 3 sessions with Adam Taylor
- Complete the build yourself
- Create a project showing a unique application on top of the end workshop build
