Xilinx has a terrific tool designed to get you from product definition to working hardware quickly. It’s called SDSoC. Digilent has a terrific dev board to get you up and running with the Zynq SoC quickly. It’s the low-cost Arty Z7. A new blog post by Digilent’s Alex Wong titled “Software Defined SoC on Arty Z7-20, Xilinx ZYNQ evaluation board” posted on RS Online’s DesignSpark site gives you a detailed, step-by-step tutorial on using SDSoC with the Digilent Arty S7. In particular, the focus here is on the ease of moving functions from software running on the Zynq SoC’s Arm Cortex-A9 processors to the Zynq SoC’s programmable hardware using Vivado HLS, which is embedded in SDSoC. That’s so that you can get the performance benefit of hardware-based task execution.
