AMD Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ Resource Tool Kit

Criteria for designing a successful Zynq UltraScale+project

To deliver a successful AMD Zynq UltraScale+ product, there are 6 fundamentals that must be observed. It’s not about detali like: “use 64-bit DDR4”, “use QSPI boot mode”, “your local Xilinx/Avnet FAE is” or “never spelling it ‘Zinc’”, these are all details that get figured out along the way. Instead, we implore that you focus on the 6 items found in our paper below. They will be the difference between your success or your failure.

A Hardware Designer’s Guide to Building with Zynq UltraScale+

Explore the practical applications and benefits of using the Zynq UltraScale+ Multi-Processor System on Chip technology in Fidus Systems’ comprehensive whitepaper. This guide offers expert insights and detailed advice on selecting, designing, and deploying your next Zynq UltraScale+ based design, providing a deep dive into the most critical design considerations. Reading this document will equip hardware designers and decision-makers with the knowledge to streamline development processes and achieve a faster time-to-market for complex electronic systems.




Case Study

Read about a recent Zynq UltraScale+ product completed for Synopsys® in our case study below. This product, called “Mantyss” is based on the largest Zynq UltraScale+ device – the 19EG. The onboard -3 speed grade supports multiple 32 Gbps+ lanes.

The card includes a lot of high-end features: A Linux OS, an FMC+ (VITA 57.4) interface, multiple boot options (e.g. Secure Digital, Dual QSPI, JTAG), Samtec® FireFly copper/optical 16 Gbps/32Gbps interfaces, DDR4, GigE, USB3.0, arm® TRACE Port, etc.

To provide users with complete access to the 19EG, a separate Board Management Controller is leveraged. Believe it or not, this card is 48-layers and 5.5mm thick; quite a feat of design and manufacturing!
