Mouser Electronics is now stocking the Zybo Z7 development boards from Diligent. The latest addition to the popular Zybo platform of Arm®/field-programmable gate array (FPGA) system-on-chips (SoCs), the Zybo Z7 is a feature-rich, ready-to-use, entry-level embedded software and digital circuit development platform for a wide range of applications, including robotics, embedded architecture, medical equipment, server-backhaul product, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and embedded vision.

The Diligent Zybo Z7 development boards are on the Xilinx Z-7010 (Zybo Z7-10 board) and Z-7020 (Zybo Z7-20) all programmable SoCs (AP SoCs) architecture, which integrates a dual-core Arm Cortex®-A9 processor with Xilinx 7-series FPGA logic. When coupled with its rich set of multimedia and connectivity peripherals, the Zybo Z7 development boards offer designers a flexible, cost-effective alternative so they can leverage the massive processing power and extensibility of the Zynq AP SoC architecture.

The Zybo Z7-20 has an internal FPGA that is three times larger than the Z7-10’s FPGA, which translates into additional features due to the extra FPGA pins. The Zybo Z7-20 also includes a heat sink for the additional FPGA resources. Both boards include a voucher for the SDSoC toolset, which provides a familiar embedded C/C++ application development experience.

Both the Zybo Z7-10 and Z7-20 also come equipped with a rich set of multimedia and connectivity peripherals to create an impressive single-board computer that is perfect for embedded circuit development. The video-capable feature set includes MIPI CSI-2 compatible Pcam connectors, HDMI input, HDMI output and high DDR3L bandwidth. In addition, six Diligent Pmod™ connectors on the boards enable access to Diligent’s catalog of Pmod peripheral modules, which include motor controllers, displays and sensors.
