Zynq design from scratch
The Mars ZX3 SoC module was the first commercially available Xilinx Zynq-based off-the-shelf board. Together with the Mars PM3 base board it builds an attractive and flexible development solution witch also provides an easy path for production volumes even for industrial temperature range applications. In his blog Zynq design from scratch Sven Andersson gives a sneak peak at this interesting solution. Click through for an interesting read.
Profinet IRT Core on Zynq in action
Enclustra, in collaboration with Xilinx and InES Institute of Embedded Systems of the School of Engineering, presented the new Profinet RT/IRT Device Solution at SPS/IPC/Drives 2014. In case you missed it, get up to speed with the advanced capabilities of Profinet with Professor Hans Doran here.
DVI module for Mars ZX3 enables full HD on Linux
The Mars ZX3 system-on-chip (SoC) module combines Xilinx's Zynq-7020 All Programmable SoC, consisting of a dual-core Cortex-A9 ARM processor and an Artix-7 FPGA fabric, with fast DDR3 SDRAM, NAND flash, quad SPI flash, Gigabit Ethernet PHYs, USB and a real-time clock. This all-round processing platform can run Linux and Android just as well as it can a RTOS. It is desirable to also have some decent graphical output apart from the 7″ touch panel shown in the Android Demo (see Video). Thinking of that, the embedded software specialist Antmicro has produced a DVI module for Mars ZX3 – so now you can enjoy a full HD Linux experience with the Zynq module.
Enclustra at Embedded World 2014
The embedded community meets again at Embedded World 2014, from the 25th to the 27th of February in Nuremberg: around 900 international exhibitors from over 30 countries will be showing their latest hardware, software, tools and services. We'll be there amongst the throng, at booth 111 in hall 4A - take the opportunity to come and visit us for a first look at our new products, or a chat with our FPGA experts.

Video: Motion control with FPGAs has never been so easy
Universal Drive Controller IP core video
The Universal Drive Controller IP core from Enclustra enables the easy addition of drive control capabilities to existing or future FPGA designs - there's no need for an extra drive controller chip. Get an idea of how easy it is to configure a motion controller that matches your application needs precisely on the Universal Drive Controller IP page.
