View our comprehensive collection of assets to assist you with all or some of your Zynq™ UltraScale+™ design.

Why choose Fidus?

With all skill sets under one roof, we optimize the potential of Zynq™ UltraScale+™ development, with:

  • Expert hardware design (we’ve worked with designs requiring up to 17 sequenced power rails)
  • Signal integrity expertise
  • Strength with Linux OS, including; custom drivers, device trees, Board Support Packages (BSP), and application development
  • Knowledge of small to large FPGA fabrics and transceivers up to 32Gbps+
  • Experience using AMD IP, AMD reference designs and third-party IP

We also own and maintain a fully-stocked laboratory at each design center, so you don’t have to invest in building labs to integrate and debug your designs.

How to deliver

Working with the Zynq™ UltraScale+™ chipset can be tricky, so we’ve developed this resource tool kit to explain key design considerations and techniques for avoiding the most common mistakes. This tool kit includes:

  • MPSoC Capability Sheet – 6 Keys to Zynq™ UltraScale+™ success
  • Zynq™ UltraScale+™ Hardware Designers Guide – with links to useful AMD Zynq™ UltraScale+™ documents
  • Zynq™ UltraScale+™ Product Case Study – a Robust Prototyping Solution for Synopsys® – Mantyss-32G™, a daughter card for HAPS®
