The folks at Xilinx
say that they've achieved an important milestone as their entire Zynq-7000 All Programmable System-on-a-Chip (SoC)
device family has now reached full volume production.
Demand for Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs is strong and growing with over 350 unique customers and more than 20,000 devices and 4,000 development boards from Xilinx and Avnet shipped since December 2011. Designs are now active across a wide range of markets, including automotive, industrial, communications, data center, and defense.“Xilinx is clearly a generation ahead of its competition in every dimension; delivery to specifications, design enablement, ecosystem development, customer designs, and production delivery. The momentum of the Zynq-7000 platform is accelerating as demand grows for highly integrated ‘smart’ and secure SoC devices offering hardware, software and I/O programmability,”
said Larry Getman, vice president of processing platforms at Xilinx.
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.
