Xilinx has unveiled its new Zynq-7100 All Programmable SoCs, the latest addition to its Zynq-7000 family, which integrates the industry’s highest performance digital signal processing (DSP) to meet the most demanding programmable systems integration requirements of next-generation ‘smart’ wireless, broadcast, medical and military applications.
The folks at Xilinx say that the combination of industry-leading signal processing performance and ARM processor-based analytics and control make the Zynq-7100 All Programmable SoC the industry’s most highly integrated solution for OEMs to speed development of such DSP-intensive products as wireless radio heads, broadcast encoders and decoders, high-end medical imaging systems, and military communications equipment. In addition to accelerating the time-to-market for these products, by integrating all these programmable technologies (hardware, software and I/O) onto a single device, the Zynq-7100 All Programmable SoC reduces both the bill-of-materials (BOM) and power consumption compared to multi-chip solutions.
“Our new Zynq-7100 device sets a new industry benchmark with greater than twice the signal processing capability of the most advanced All Programmable SoC available to date and is set to accelerate Zynq’s already rapid replacement of ASIC & ASSPs in high performance signal processing applications,” said Lawrence Getman, vice president of processing platforms at Xilinx. “The Zynq-7100 device is the latest example of our commitment to staying a generation ahead and to meeting the needs of OEMs, which are racing to build new equipment to enable smarter networks and other smarter systems that increasingly rely on intelligence for greater efficiency, improved reliability and increased total system performance.”
The Zynq-7000 family enables customers to add increasing levels of software-based intelligence to their systems including control, communications, security, system management and analytics, closely coupled with high performance, hardware-based data, packet and/or pixel processing. Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC designers also benefit from the combination of the ARM Connected Community® and the Xilinx® Alliance Program. This combination constitutes one of the industry’s widest ecosystems providing support for most popular free and commercial embedded operating systems and RTOS, a large selection of free and commercial development tools, over 20 development boards, design services, training and other products and services.
