Getting started with Xilinx Zynq SoC

Learn more about how to efficiently realize the full potential of SoCs


We'd like to invite you to this free seminar, arranged by Enclustra and Avnet SILICA, on SoC design integration.

System on chip (SoC) solutions are on the up; the combination of a flexible ARM CPU and the parallel processing power of an FPGA is rapidly advancing what can be achieved in the realm of FPGA-based systems.

During this event, expert engineers from Avnet SILICA and Enclustra will illustrate how you can utilize the full performance of an SoC, even with minimal VHDL and FPGA know-how. Basics and potential applications will be presented, as well as common real-world challenges faced when dealing with SoC technology. The program includes presentations on:

  • Which applications are SoCs especially good for
  • How you can use the FPGA fabric as a fast co-processor
  • How the ARM processors are connected to the FPGA fabric
  • Which tools are required
  • How a real-world development process looks
  • How IP cores can help to shorten development time

Take the opportunity to benefit from the experience of the Avnet SILICA and Enclustra engineers, learned from hundreds of projects.

Who should join

The seminar is aimed at all developers working with microcontrollers, DSPs, SoCs and FPGAs, in particular:

  • Embedded software developers
  • System and software architects
  • FPGA/SoC developers
  • FPGA/SoC newcomes
  • Project managers
  • Team leaders
