Advanced Features & Techniques of Embedded Systems

   Advanced Features and Techniques of Embedded Systems Design provides embedded systems developers the necessary skills to develop complex embedded systems and enables them to improve their designs by using the tools available in the Vivado™ IP Integrator. This course also helps developers understand and utilize advanced components of embedded systems design for architecting a complex system in the Zynq™ All Programmable System on a Chip (SoC) or Microblaze™ soft processor.

 This course builds on the skills gained in the Embedded Systems Design course. Labs provide hands-on experience with developing, debugging, and simulating an embedded system. Utilizing memory resources and implementing high-performance DMA are also covered. Labs use demo boards in which designs are downloaded and verified.

LAB DESCRIPTION

 

          Lab 1:  Building a Complete System (Zynq AP SoC and MicroBlaze Processor) – Develop hardware that incorporates the Zynq All Programmable SoC PS or MicroBlaze processor IP cores to interface to AXI GPIO peripherals and serial communication. Use the SDK development tools to create an embedded software application project for the hardware built.

          Lab 2: Debugging on the Zynq All Programmable SoC – Evaluate debugging the hardware and software components of a Zynq All Programmable SoC design.

          Lab 3: Extending Memory Space with Block RAM (Zynq AP SoC) – Use the Vivado IP integrator to extend the memory resources for the Cortex-A9 processor. 

          Lab 4: Extending Memory Space with a DDR3 controller (MicroBlaze Processor) – Use the Vivado IP integrator to extend the memory resources for the MicroBlaze processor.

          Lab 5: Configuring DMA on the Zynq All Programmable SoC – Program the DMA controller on the Zynq All Programmable SoC PS and explore the various Standalone library services that support the Zynq All Programmable SoC PS DMA controller.

          Lab 6: Boot Loading from Flash Memory (Zynq AP SOC) – Develop an application that is stored in flash memory, load it through a boot loader program, and execute a software application from external memory for the Cortex-A9 processor.

          Lab 7: Simulating an Embedded Processor System (MicroBlaze Processor) – Develop the process of simulating a complete design including an embedded system component using the Vivado simulator. Use SDK to create a new workspace/software application project and build a simple software application that will be included in the simulation.
