TOKYO ELECTRON DEVICE ANNOUNCES Development of TB-7Z-020-EMC Extension Microcontroller Card with Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC

Tokyo Electron Device Limited (TED) has today announced the development of the TB-7Z-020-EMC extension microcontroller card fitted with a Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC.

Released under TED's inrevium* brand, the TB-7Z-020-EMC is an evaluation platform fitted with both an ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPcore with on-chip connection to an FPGA fabric and a Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC that incorporates a range of peripheral functions. It can be used to implement evaluation systems into various different development projects.

Large logic development projects typically require hardware and software engineers to share the limited number of evaluation systems. In particular, development inefficiencies arise such as the long time simulation and lack of seamless emulation, if software engineers are unable to use their evaluation system frequently.

When used in conjunction with TED's TB-7V-2000T-LSI ASIC development test platform or FPGA evaluation platforms fitted with an FMC connector, the TB-7Z-020-EMC facilitates task separation between hardware and software engineers, helps budget cut and reduce the development time significantly. The new TB-7Z-020-EMC features ease of connection to the main FPGA evaluation platform,and software engineers can use it to test the performance repeatedly on the real hardware during the development process. This provides a system-level evaluation environment that can be used with greater efficiency than was possible in the past.

By featuring small size and a wide range of interfaces, TB-7Z-020-EMC goes far beyond just connection ability with FPGA evaluation platform. The card can also demonstrate its high level performance and design productivity not only as the development environment, but also for the development of the application which require powerful ARM processor such as Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. With supporting FMC connector, additional interfaces can be added easily to support the targeted application. This means that the TB-7Z-020-EMC can facilitate innovative product developments, and also can satisfy the diverse needs of developments to differentiate their products from competitors. Software reference designs are also available, including design for connection to various types of FPGA evaluation boards, for DVI interface and for Linux-based embedded systems.

[TB-7Z-020-EMC Features]
• Shortens development time by providing a system-level development environment
• Faster and higher quality software development
• High degree of expandability facilitates reuse of design resources
