Zynq 7000 SoC for the Software Designer - LIVE ONLINE

This online course introduces you to software design and development for the Xilinx Zynq® SoC using the Xilinx Software Development Kit. You will learn the concepts, tools, and techniques required for the software phase of the design cycle. Topics are comprehensive, covering the design and implementation of the board support package (BSP) for resource access and management of the Xilinx Standalone library. Major topics include device driver use, user application debugging and integration.

Practical implementation tips and best practices are also provided throughout to enable you to make good design decisions and keep your design cycles to a minimum.

The theoretical content is supplemented by exercises carried out by the participant.
