MicroZed Evaluation Kit

by: Avnet

MicroZed™ is a low-cost development board based on the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 SoC. Its unique design allows it to be used as both a stand-alone evaluation board for basic SoC experimentation, or combined with a carrier card as an embeddable system-on-module (SOM). MicroZed contains two I/O headers that provide connection to two I/O banks on the programmable logic (PL) side of the Zynq-7000 SoC device. In stand-alone mode, these 100 PL I/O are inactive. When plugged into a carrier card, the I/O are accessible in a manner defined by the carrier card design. Thus designers can start with MicroZed in stand-alone mode as a learning platform and then easily expand its functionality as a SOM through the addition of an off-the-shelf or custom designed carrier card. This combined stand-alone/SOM approach can quickly move a design idea from concept to production, making MicroZed the ideal platform for SoC based applications.

The MicroZed kit is supported by the www.microzed.org community website where users can download kit documentation and reference designs as well as collaborate with other engineers also working on Zynq designs.
