* This course focuses on the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC architecture.
Check with your local Authorized Training Provider for the specifics of
the in-class lab environment or other customizations. This version of
the class does not use a physical board, but rather a local emulation
environment and the Vivado Design Suite

After completing this comprehensive training , you will have the necessary skills to:

  • Enumerate the key elements of the application processing unit (APU) and real-time processing unit (RPU)
  • List the various power domains and how they are controlled
  • Describe the connectivity between the processing system (PS) and programmable logic(PL)
  • Utilize QEMU to emulate hardware behavior

Course Outline

Day 1

▪ Application Processing Unit
Introduction to the members of the APU, specifically the
Cortex™-A53 processor and how the cluster is configured and
managed. {Lectures, Lab}
▪ HW-SW Virtualization
Covers the hardware and software elements of virtualization. The
lab demonstrates how hypervisors can be used. {Lectures, Demo,
Lab}
Real-Time Processing Unit
Focuses on the real-time processing module (RPU) in the PS,
which is comprised of a pair of Cortex processors and supporting
elements.. {Lectures, Demo, Lab}
QEMU
Introduction to the Quick Emulator, which is the tool used to run
software for the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC device when hardware
is not available. {Lectures, Demos}
▪ Booting
How to implement the embedded system, including the boot
process and boot image creation. {Lectures, Lab}
▪ First Stage Boot Loader
Demonstrates the process of developing, customizing, and
debugging this mandatory piece of code. {Lecture, Demo}


Day 2

  Video
Introduction to video, video codecs, and the Video Codec Unit
available in the Zynq UltraScale MPSoC. {Lectures}
▪ System Protection
Covers all the hardware elements that support the separation of
software domains. {Lectures}
▪ Clocks and Resets
Overview of clocking and reset, focusing more on capabilities
than specific implementations. {Lectures, Demos}
▪ AXI
Understanding how the PS and PL connect enables designers to
create more efficient systems. {Lectures, Demo, Lab}
▪ Power Management
Overview of the PMU and the power-saving features of the device {Lecture. Lab}
