Arrowhead Compatible Zynq Ultrascale+ Systems with Xilinx SDSoC 2018.2 Support


The application note describes nine Arrowhead framework compatible Zynq Ultrascale+ systems with support for the Xilinx SDSoC 2018.2 system level compiler.

  • Zynq Ultrascale+ systems can accelerate computing by HW acceleration of algorithms in the programmable logic. See example of acceleration 50 x.

  • Shorter computing latency can be achieved in comparison to pure SW solution.

  • The total system energy consumption associated with single iteration of an HW accelerated algorithm can be significantly reduced in comparison to the pure SW implementation.

  • The nine supported systems use identical Debian configuration and Arrowhead framework support.

  • The described board support package generation project is starting point for creation, configuration and compilation of user specific board support packages with custom I/O data interfaces and user specific extensions.

The evaluation package described in this application note supports in total nine Zynq Ultrascale+ systems with common procedure for generation of the board support package for Petalinux 2018.2 kernel, Debian OS and for the Arrowhead framework clients.
