Exploring Zynq MPSoC: With PYNQ and Machine Learning Applications
This book introduces the Zynq MPSoC (Multi-Processor System-on-Chip), an embedded device from Xilinx. The Zynq MPSoC combines a sophisticated processing system that includes ARM Cortex-A53 applications and ARM Cortex-R5 real-time processors, with FPGA programmable logic. As well as guiding the reader through the architecture of the device, design tools and methods are also covered in detail: both the conventional hardware/software co-design approach, and the newer software-defined methodology using Xilinx's SDx development environment. Featured aspects of Zynq MPSoC design include hardware and software development, multiprocessing, safety, security and platform management, and system booting. There are also special features on PYNQ, the Python-based framework for Zynq devices, and machine learning applications. This book should serve as a useful guide for those working with Zynq MPSoC, and equally as a reference for technical managers wishing to gain familiarity with the device and its associated design methodologies.
