PicoZed SDR SpeedWay 2015 Training

This application-specific course presents selected topics in wireless communications with the Avnet PicoZed SDR Software-Defined Radio Development Kit. System-level design techniques are used to model the entire signal chain from RF to baseband within Analog Devices AD9361 agile RF transceiver and Xilinx Zynq® All-Programmable SoC. Hands-on labs progress though the essential components of modern wireless communication systems using MATLAB® and Simulink® for simulation, code generation and real-time data acquisition with over-the-air testing.

Vivado Zynq SpeedWay Workshops

The Xilinx Software Development Kit (SDK) offers everything necessary to make Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC software application development easy. This class covers these capabilities, including BSP creation, built-in drivers, example C code, interrupts, debugging, flash programming, and where to get more help.

This class demonstrates the hardware and software flows for creating your first Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC design. Through a series of instructor presentations (based on 2013.3) and hands-on labs (2013.3, 2014.4, 2015.2, and 2016.2), hardware and firmware engineers will learn all the required steps for creating a Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC design on either ZedBoard™ or MicroZed™

This intermediate-level course provides embedded systems developers with experience in creating an embedded Linux operating system on a Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC. Based on the PetaLinux Software Development Kit (SDK), the course offers students hands-on experience in building the environment and booting the system using a basic Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC design.

System-on-Chip designs offer the unique advantage of providing custom built accelerators to increase system performance. This intermediate-level course introduces attendees to the design flow required in identifying software bottlenecks and creating custom hardware accelerators in the Programmable Logic (PL) portion of the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC.

This course explores various ARM® processor application debug techniques on the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC based MicroZed and ZedBoard development platforms using Xilinx SDK and ARM DS-5. The accompanying lab-based tutorial series begins with the most basic tool configuration and board connection.

Zynq Design Seminars

This seminar introduces students to the Xilinx Smarter Vision offering, featuring the Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC, complemented with Vivado, a robust development environment consisting of IP Integrator and Vivado HLS (High-Level Synthesis), Open CV libraries, SmartCORE™ IP and video development kits.
 

This course introduces wireless communication system design on the new Avnet Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC / AD9361 Software-Defined Radio Evaluation Kit featuring Analog Devices AD9361 single-chip RF agile transceiver. An IEEE 802.11 receiver example will demonstrate system-level simulation using MATLAB® and Simulink® modeling and code generation tools from MathWorks.

This seminar bridges the gap between systems engineering and hardware design by introducing an automated tool flow using Simulink® modeling for C and HDL code generation targeting the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC.  Learn how algorithm iterations can be quickly prototyped on hardware directly from Simulink and deployed into production using the Xilinx Vivado® Design Suite.  An example

This course explores the Linux operating system running on the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC. Starting with a pre-built hardware platform, attendees will build an embedded Linux system from the beginning. An application and device driver will be developed to interface to a custom hardware peripheral. The Linux operating system and basic driver development concepts will be explained.

This course combines the high-speed analog signal chain from RF to baseband with FPGA-based digital signal processing for wireless communications. Topics include the high-speed analog signal chain, direct conversion radio architecture, the high-speed data converter interface and FPGA-based digital signal processing for software defined radio.
