Cora Z7: Zynq®-7000 Single- and Dual-Core Options for Arm®/FPGA SoC Development

Digilent's Cora Z7 is a low-cost platform for entry-level Zynq developers

Image of Digilent's Cora Z7Digilent's Cora Z7 is a ready-to-use, low-cost, and easily embeddable development platform designed around the powerful Zynq®-7000 all-programmable system-on-chip (APSoC) from Xilinx®. The Zynq-7000 architecture tightly integrates a single- or dual-core 667MHz ARM Cortex®-A9 processor with a Xilinx 7-series FPGA. This pairing grants the ability to surround the processor with a unique set of software-defined peripherals and controllers, tailored for the target application.

The Cora Z7’s wide array of hardware interfaces, from a 1 Gbps Ethernet PHY to analog-to-digital converters (ADC) and general purpose input/output pins, make it an ideal platform for the development of a vast variety of embedded applications. The small form-factor and mounting holes make the Cora Z7 ready-to-use as one component of a larger solution. The on-board SD card slot, Ethernet, and power solution allow this device to operate independently of a host computer.
