This cost-optimized solution supports cloud connectivity and industrial IoT applications such as motor control and embedded vision. The starter kit is now available for ordering, with shipments starting in early July.
Showcasing the power of the Zynq-7000S SoC device family, which features a single-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor paired with 28nm Artix-7 based programmable logic, MiniZed represents the lowest cost entry point to the scalable Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC development platform. Small enough to fit into a shirt pocket, MiniZed features on-board connectivity through USB, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Peripherals can be plugged into dual Pmod-compatible connectors, the Arduino-compatible shield interface or the USB 2.0 host interface. User LEDs, a button and a switch allow for a physical board interface, while JTAG circuitry is incorporated onto the MiniZed base board. The on-board eMMC (8GB) provides convenient storage for the OS, files and logs.
The MiniZed platform is supported by the www.minized.org community website where users can collaborate with other engineers also working on Zynq designs.
