Training: Embedded Systems Design for the Xilinx Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC, Montreal

March 3 to 5, 2020 in Montréal, Québec

CMC offers a three-day Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC course combining hardware, software, and architecture principles for designing with this Xilinx device. This course will be held in Toronto (February 19 to 21) and repeated in Montréal (March 3 to 5). This course will be delivered by Hardent, a Xilinx Authorized Training Partner (ATP).

This three-day course focuses on the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family and the development methods needed to start designing your custom embedded system. It includes an overview of the features and capabilities of the device, encompassing implementation options, virtualization, various Linux implementations, booting and configuring a system, safety and security, and power management. Details of the Processor System (PS) and Programmable Logic (PL) are also covered in detail, including best-practices for interfacing the two with one another. All aspects of defining your embedded system architecture, starting with the hardware configuration and then running through the software implementation, will be covered.
