Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC for the Software Designer - LIVE ONLINE

This course provides hardware designers with an overview of the capabilities and support for the Zynq® UltraScale+™ MPSoC family from a software architectural perspective. 
With hypervisor shared memory and open AMP as well as inter-processor interrupt communication, the Xilinx software stack supports with a set of dedicated libraries Baremetal, FreeRTOS and Open Source Linux with build processes based on PetaLinux and/or Yocto.
Optional platform management, such as System watchdog or dynamic power management is demonstrated and supplemented with practical exercises.

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

Duration: 3 mornings of 4 hours each

Times:    9.00 a.m. - 11.00 a.m.    Lecture part 1

              11.00 a.m. - 11.15 a.m.  15 minute break

              11.15 a.m. - 1.15 p.m.    Lecture part 2

Exercises: self paced by the participants. Estimated time for completion appr. 2-3 hours. At the end of a lecture, the exercises to be performed by participants are discussed. The results / sample solutions are presented by the trainer the next day.

After registration: the participant receives the presentation documents in electronic form (PDF) as well as the workbook for the exercises, the login data and a list of 
requirements to be done in advanced.
