Zynq-based, multi-effect guitar processor wins Student Category in Xilinx University Program’s Open Hardware 2017

Guitar pedal aficionados will love this winning entry in the Xilinx University Program’s Open Hardware 2017 competition, Student Category. It’s a senior-year project from Vladi Litmanovich and Adi Mikler from Tel Aviv University and it’s based on an Avnet ZedBoard Dev Kit. The on-board Zynq Z-7020 SoC accepts audio from an electric guitar, passes it through four effects processors, sums the resulting audio, and ships the audio to a guitar amplifier. The result is a multi-effect processor similar to the stacked pedal processors favored by musicians for the last 50 years to achieve just the right sound for each song.


The on-board Zynq SoC implements the multi-effects processor’s user interface, based on the ZedBoard’s switches and LEDs, and implements four real-time audio effects using the Zynq SoC’s programmable logic:


  • Distortion and Overdrive
  • Octavelo (an Octaver plus Tremolo)
  • Tremolo
  • Delay


Here’s a block diagram of the audio-processing chain:

There’s a complete description of the project with implementation details on GitHub.



Because this is music, a video demo is much better for illustrating these audio effects:
