Xilinx unveiled industry’s first Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) the Zynq-7000 family in India. Xilinx claims this series will achieve the levels of processing and compute performance required in high-end embedded applications in markets such as video surveillance, automotive driver assistance, factory automation, and many others. Supported by a vast ecosystem of tools and IP providers, the Zynq-7000 family tightly integrates a complete ARM(R) Cortex(TM)-A9 MPCore(TM) processor-based system with 28nm, low-power programmable logic for system architects and embedded software developers to extend, customize, optimize, and differentiate their systems.

Each Zynq-7000 EPP device is built with an ARM dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore processing system with NEON and Double Precision Floating Point engines that is fully integrated and hardwired, and includes L1 and L2 caches, memory controllers, and commonly used peripherals.

“Our Zynq-7000 family offers designers a comprehensive platform that enables them to create their own customized standard products that scale from very cost- and power-effective solutions based on the capabilities of the Artix-7 FPGA family, to more comprehensive and performance-oriented solutions on the higher end with devices based on the Kintex-7 family,” said Vin Ratford, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Marketing and Business Development at Xilinx. Application developers can take advantage of the programmable logic’s massive parallel processing to handle large amounts of data across a wide range of signal processing applications, as well as extend the features of the processing system by implementing additional peripherals.
