The Eclypse Z7 is specifically designed to enable the rapid prototyping and development of embedded measurement systems. Featuring high-speed Zmod ports for modular expansion and a Xilinx Zynq®-7020 SoC, the Eclypse Z7 is fast and flexible, reducing the time it takes for engineers and researchers to develop innovative and powerful new high-speed instrumentation, control, and measurement systems for edge-computing, medical, and communications applications.
Zmod is Digilent’s expansion solution using the open-source SYZYGY standard from Opal Kelly. Faster than the Pmod Standard and more compact and cost-effective than FMC, Zmods improve the customizability options for high-speed I/O. Plug in your application specific Zmods and get up and running in hours or days, instead of weeks or months. Take a look at the Features tab for a list of compatible Zmods.

To create and modify designs for your Eclypse Z7, you can use Xilinx's Vivado Design Suite. Vivado is software designed for the synthesis, implementation, and analysis of HDL designs. The Eclypse Z7 is supported by the free WebPACK edition.
You can use Xilinx's PetaLinux Tools to customize, build, and deploy Embedded Linux solutions on the Zynq-7000.
Xilinx SDK enables development of embedded software applications targeting Xilinx SoC devices, such as the Zynq-7000.
Note: Xilinx software tools are not available for download in some countries. Prior to purchasing the Eclypse Z7, please check the supporting software's availability, as it is required for the board's use.
For those who want to get started without FPGA experience, Digilent provides several example designs using the Eclypse with C/C++, including both baremetal and Linux software applications, when used with the combination of Zmod Scope 1410-105 and Zmod AWG.
A hardware-only digital filter example that loops signals from a Zmod Scope through digital signal processing logic in the Zynq PL and back out through a Zmod AWG is also offered.
Additional information can be found on Digilent Reference, which can be found through the Support Materials tab.
