Discovering the SmartFusion® 2 SoC.

Several years ago, electronic designs began to feature System on a Chip (SoC) technology. This technology is an excellent choice for designs that require a higher integration or a reduction in Bill of Materials (BOM) cost. On this blog we…

Development boards I use.

Many times, developers who want to take their first steps in the world of the FPGAs ask me about a development board which begin to test their first designs. From the newie point of view, I understand that see a…

Connecting an SSD to Zynq MPSOC.

Devices like Xilinx Zynq or Microchip PolarFire give us the possibility to mix in a single design a high level OS like Linux and a fast device like FPGA. For signal processing, or even data science, is very interesting to…

Designing an FPGA board.

Few month ago, I decided to design my own FPGA development board. The main reason for that was simply learn to do it, because I have design a lot o boards for peripherals, PMODs, or other projects, but never one…

Genesys ZU and Zynq US+.

Genesys ZU
This week I have received the big (big) sister of the Eclypse Z7, the Digilent’s Genesys ZU. This board, due to its FMC, ZMOD and PMOD is a good choice for signal processing applications, but first, let’s take a look…

Eclypse Z7, ZMODs and SYZYGY.

Few months ago, Digilent presented their new development platforms based in Zynq and Zynq US+, with connectors compatibles with SYZYGY standard. This standard is in the middle between PMOD and FMC, with the enormous advantage that can be soldered by…
