Arty Z7-20: APSoC Zynq-7000 Development Board for Makers and Hobbyists
Digilent recommends the Arty Z7-20 with SDSoC voucher for those interested in video processing applications. Vivado Design Suite voucher not included - Vivado Design Suite Edition is available for free download (Vivado WebPACK).
The Arty Z7 is a ready-to-use development platform designed around the Zynq-7000™ All Programmable System-on-Chip (AP SoC) from Xilinx. The Zynq-7000 architecture tightly integrates a dual-core, 650 MHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor with Xilinx 7-series Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) logic. This pairing grants the ability to surround a powerful processor with a unique set of software defined peripherals and controllers tailored by you for whatever application is being conquered. The design process is very straightforward and provides a systematic path between defining your custom peripheral set and bringing its functionality up to a Linux OS running on the processor. Digilent provides a number of materials and resources for the Arty Z7 that will get you up and running with this process quickly, see below.
