Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC Linux Solution

The Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC (AP SoC) Linux solution combines the benefits of the Linux operating system together with PetaLinux Tools and Xilinx SDK geared towards designing software applications on this platform.

This solution provides:

  • Fully tested and user ready, out-of-the-box solution targeting Zynq-7000 AP SoC boards
  • Symmetric Multi-Processing (SMP) and Asymmetric Multi-Processing (AMP) mode support of ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processing system
  • Board support package and drivers that closely follow the mainline kernel.org tree, providing the benefits of latest kernel features
  • Linux kernel that use device tree for run-time configuration which allows the same kernel image to run on different hardware configurations
  • PetaLinux Tools to customize, build and deploy Linux systems
  • Xilinx SDK to develop, debug and profile Linux software applications
  • QEMU system model of the Zynq-7000 SoC processing system to run and debug software applications
  • Access to a growing community of software developers interested in the Zynq-7000 platform
  • Access to world-class commercial solutions from Linux partners
