If you’ve read a good amount of my blog posts and my profile, you probably feel like you know me pretty well. However, I have yet to reveal the most important fact about myself of all– what my favorite Digilent product is.
Well, my favorite released product is the ZYBO. In fact, to commemorate this blog post I took this picture; with the ZYBOt, ZYBO, and my ZYBO shirt.
The ZYBO features the Zynq-7010 SoC, which integrates a Xilinx 7-series FPGA, and a dual-core ARM cortex-A9 processor. This allows powerful embedded Linux driven applications. You can start with embedded Linux and move to a robotics application like the ZYBOt.
The Zybo even has a textbook for you to learn how to use it, and use for reference called The Zynq Book. It’s a powerful board, with awesome learning materials to back it up.
