Zybo Z7-20 in ARC 2018

If you are interested in accelerating real-time, high definition video processing designs, catch the Zybo Z7-20 at the International Symposium on Applied Reconfigurable Computing (ARC 2018) in Santorini, Greece on May 4 for our one-day workshop. The focus of the workshop will be on implementing a real-time, high definition video processing application with the Zybo Z7, PCAM, and Vivado.


Led by presenter Ciprian Hegbeli, the event begins at 9:00 A.M and continues for the majority of the day. Examples are based upon C++ and VHDL. There will be demonstration on HLS design flow, IP core usage, simulations and hardware debugging, and participants will leave the workshop with instructional materials they can use for their own courses and projects.

Additional topics will include:

  • Explain how to build the real-time video processing pipelines and Intellectual Property (IP) in the Xilinx computer aided design (CAD) tool.
  • Illustrate the viability of real-time video processing in reconfigurable logic instead of software running on a general-purpose microprocessor.
  • Explain parallelism and program execution.
  • Introduce Xilinx FPGA Architecture and Vivado HLS.
  • Introduce Digilent Zybo Z7 and PCAM.
  • Accelerate video processing algorithm on Xilinx Vivado.
  • Implement video processing design on Digilent Zybo Z7 and PCAM.

If you are an instructor in engineering education, involved in laboratory work, or a graduate student in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department, this workshop is a good fit for you. Check out the official website for additional information!

About Miranda Hansen

I enjoy creative writing, engineering, thinking, building, exploring and sharing with people. Huge aficionado of spending time thinking about things that “don’t matter.” I am very interested in unconstrained creativity. I love cross-discipline ideas and all of their integration into complete original systems. And I like things that do things.
