The ZYBO (Zynq Board) is a feature-rich, ready-to-use, entry-level embedded software and digital circuit development platform built around the Z-7010. The on-board memories, video and audio I/O, dual-role USB, Ethernet and SD slot will have your design up-and-ready with no additional hardware needed. Additionally, five Pmod connectors are available to put any design on an easy growth path. The ZYBO can be used for designing systems of any complexity, from a complete operating system running multiple server applications in tandem, down to a simple bare-metal program that controls some LEDs. For systems that require an operating system, Digilent provides an out-of-the-box Linux solution specifically targeted to run on the ZYBO, complete with documentation describing how best to mold it to suite your purposes. These Xilinx tools and Linux solution are all available to use at no additional cost with the ZYBO.
