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.

Printed or electronic materials?
Printed materials (slides, notes, and lab instructions) are provided for in person training, and are recommended for VILT training as well. However, you may choose to receive electronic only, or printed and electronic. Engineers who select electronic only should plan to have a device to read the materials on during class (iPad, android device, or another laptop).
Evaluation boards are provided for in person training only. However, an evaluation kit can also be purchased through NPE, Inc., as part of training. Engineers who take training should already have an evaluation kit, or should purchase one through NPE.
Zedboard Evaluation Kit
ZedBoard is a low-cost development board for the Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC. This board contains everything necessary to create a Linux, Android, Windows® or other OS/RTOS-based design. Additionally, several expansion connectors expose the processing system and programmable logic I/Os for easy user access. Take advantage of the Zynq-7000 AP SoC’s tightly coupled ARM® processing system and 7 series programmable logic to create unique and powerful designs with ZedBoard.
