Last year, Louise Crockett, Ross Elliot, Martin Enderwitz, and Robert Stewart at the University of Strathclyde’s Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering published “The Zynq Book,” which you can download as a free PDF here. You can also purchase a hard copy of The Zynq Book on Amazon for $27. Just in case you’ve not been paying attention, the Zynq SoC fuses the easy software programmability of a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor with the outstanding hardware performance of Xilinx programmable logic.
But wait, now there’s more.
Crockett and Stewart have now published a comprehensive, step-by-step companion tutorial workbook targeting the low-cost, Zynq-based Digilent Zybo and Avnet ZedBoard. It’s dated August, 2015, so you know it’s hot off the press. As with The Zynq Book, the workbook available as a free PDF download (click here). The workbook went online over the weekend and more than 20,000 people downloaded the PDF. (If you prefer—and in addition to the free PDF—you can order a $14.95 hard copy of the new 178-page workbook from Amazon or Barnes and Noble.)
This book holds your hand while you enter the world of Zynq SoC configuration and programming using the Xilinx Vivado Design Suite, from starting a project to writing software with SDK (the Software Development Kit), to using existing hardware IP and creating your own. This is a killer companion to The Zynq Book.
