MiniZed Technical Training Courses
01 Jan 2020 - 31 Dec 2020
The MiniZed Technical Training Courses help engineers jump start the development of single-core Xilinx® Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC devices using the Avnet MiniZed™ Zynq SoC development board, a cost-optimized prototyping platform for embedded vision and Industrial IoT systems.
These one-day instructional programs will train customers on the latest design flows using Xilinx’s Vivado® Design Suite through a mix of lecture and interactive labs.
For designers new to Xilinx SoC technology and tools, or those looking to brush up their skills, Avnet will offer two introductory courses: Developing Zynq Hardware and Developing Zynq Software.
More experienced designers can choose from two advanced course offerings: Integrating Sensors on MiniZed with Petalinux and A Practical Guide to Getting Started with Xilinx SDSoC™ Development Environment.
Developing Zynq Software
In the Developing Zynq Software Technical Training Course, you will be introduced to Xilinx SDK and shown how it offers everything necessary to make Zynq software design easy. This class will cover these capabilities, including BSP creation, built-in drivers, example C code, interrupts, debugging, flash programming, I2C interface between a TE connectivity Pmod, and where to get more help.
Developing Zynq Hardware
In the Developing Zynq Hardware Technical Training Course, you will be introduced to the single ARM Cortex –A9 Processor core as you explore its robust AXI peripheral set. Doing so you will utilize the Xilinx embedded systems tool set to design a Zynq AP SoC system, add Xilinx IP as well as custom IP, run software applications to test the IP, and finally Debug your embedded system.
Integrating Sensors on MiniZed with PetaLinux
From within an Ubuntu OS running within a virtual machine, learn how to install PetaLinux 2017.1 and build embedded Linux targeting MiniZed. In the hands-on labs learn about Yocto and PetaLinux tools to import your own FPGA hardware design, integrate user space applications, and configure/customize PetaLinux. Use Xilinx SDK tools to develop/debug user applications and use example application code to capture data from a TE Connectivity HTU21D I2C sensor. Where service is available, an Internet of Things (IoT) application will be used to publish the sensor data periodically to the cloud using the MQTT protocol. Source code for the user applications are included with the hands-on labs for you to leverage as a launch point in your custom design.
A Practical Guide to Getting Started with Xilinx SDSoC
Using proven flows for SDSoC, the student will learn how to navigate SDSoC. Through hands-on labs, we will create a design for a provided platform and then also create a platform for the Avnet MiniZed. You will see how to accelerate an algorithm in the course lab. This experience should give you the background to assist you in developing custom platforms with custom algorithms, accelerated by SDSoC.
Prices & Information
Full-day course, MiniZed board and TE Connectivity Pmod: $155.
Additional full-day courses, or a full-day course for attendees who have a MiniZed board*: $59.
*For attendees who have a MiniZed board, the TE Connectivity Pmod will be provided at the first course they attend. Attendees must have a laptop, MiniZed board and TE Connectivity Pmod to participate in the course labs. Prices may vary across regions.
Secure ROI of your IoT Solution with Embedded Computing
Join Avnet experts for a webinar on how embedded computing affects ROI in IoT solution development. You'll leave with a better understanding of how important it is to select the right embedded computing technology to avoid hidden costs.
Improve CAN-FD network speed in complex multi-stub designs
Complex network topologies act as roadblocks to reaching CAN-FD’s full 5Mbps potential. Join in our next Transportation Tuesday webinar as NXP CAN experts explain the challenge and how to overcome it with CAN Signal Improvement technology. Get up to speed on the CAN interface, design considerations, new CANSIC devices and the UAVCAN protocol.
Capacitive touch controls boost automotive circuit reliability
Many automotive applications require some degree of reliable human control. While capacitive touch controls are more reliable and safer than mechanical switches, they are also subject to EMI interference. Join engineers from Avnet and ON Semiconductor in a free-wheeling discussion on capacitive touch controls for cars and how to make them road-ready.
