This bundle includes a 1-year license of VAXEL-EZ and a Zybo Z7 development board. Additional accessories may be included and will be listed in the What's Included tab.

The Zybo Z7 is a feature-rich, ready-to-use embedded software and digital circuit development board built around the Xilinx Zynq-7000 SoC device family. The Zynq family is based on the Xilinx All Programmable System-on-Chip (AP SoC) architecture, which tightly integrates a dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with Xilinx 7-series Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) logic. The Zybo Z7 surrounds the Zynq with a rich set of multimedia and connectivity peripherals to create a formidable single-board computer, even before considering the flexibility and power added by the FPGA. The Zybo Z7's video-capable feature set, including a MIPI CSI-2 compatible Pcam connector, HDMI input and output, and high DDR3L bandwidth, was chosen to make it an affordable solution for the high-end embedded vision applications that Xilinx FPGAs are popular for. Attaching additional hardware is made easy by the Zybo Z7's Pmod connectors, allowing access to Digilent's catalog of over 70 Pmod peripheral boards, such as motor controllers, sensors, displays, and more.

VAXEL-EZ boosts productivity of algorithm verification processes on Digilent FPGA boards. The package includes a set of utility software that runs on Windows to facilitate tasks ranging from automation of FPGA synthesis to execution of tests. With VAXEL-EZ, no FPGA expertise is needed to take full advantage of the Digilent FPGA boards.

VAXEL-EZ Features:

  • Automation GUI for FPGA Synthesis
  • Pre-qualified verification IP blocks
  • Control console of the FPGA and test administration from Windows PC
  • Support for CLI, C, and Python via libraries
  • Easy to follow tutorial materials and step-by-step user manuals
  • For more information on VAXEL-EZ, visit VAXEL’s website or the Support Materials linked to the right

Note: Your license will be delivered electronically by VAXEL. After your purchase, you will receive an order confirmation from Digilent. Within 24 hours, you will get an additional email from VAXEL with instructions on activating your license.

Your development board will be shipped by Digilent.
