To order from your local book store, please print out the appropriate information sheet and present it to a bookseller. It contains all the information required to order the book.
What is the target audience of The Zynq Book?
The book has been written to provide an accessible introduction to Zynq, and to cater for those with more experience. It is anticipated that this book will be of interest to professional design engineers, technology managers, academics and researchers, masters-level and research students, and hobbyists.
Who are the authors of The Zynq Book?
Information on the authors can be found on the Authors section of the website.
I am an academic interested in the potential of Zynq for academic teaching, will this book help me?
Yes, the book contains a chapter on Zynq in research and teaching, and will give you a “big picture” view as well as technical details. For additional information and support, please also refer to the Xilinx University Program, which provides specific resources for professors.
What are the dimensions of the book?
The Zynq Book has a page size of 191mm x 235mm (7.5” x 9.25”), and is just under 25mm (1”) thick.
The Zynq Book Tutorials for Zybo and ZedBoard has an A4 page size of 210mm x 297mm (8.628” x 11.693”), and is just over 10mm (0.4”) thick.
Can I find these books in libraries?
The books may be found in academic / research / technical libraries, but each library decides on its own books to stock. If you would like to make a request to your library, the information sheets will help to provide the details to your librarian. Sourcing or stocking the book is then at the discretion of your librarian.
How long will it take to complete the companion tutorials?
Generally speaking, it will take a user who has no prior experience working with a Zynq development board, or the required development tools, somewhere in the region of 12-15 hours to complete all of the tutorials.
For a user with some prior experience, it could take significantly less time.
What hardware/software tools are required to complete the companion tutorials?
The current set of tutorials have been compiled for use with Xilinx Vivado Design Suite 2015.1 software suite and the Zybo and ZedBoard hardware development boards.
(Further information on the listed products can be found by clicking the appropriate links in the text above.)
The Zynq Book Tutorials for Zybo and ZedBoard have been developed and tested for these development boards only. However, if you own a different Zynq-based development board, it should be possible to adapt the tutorials yourself.
Exercise 4B of Tutorial 4 requires MATLAB and some additional products for HDL code generation. The following MATLAB components are required:
DSP System Toolbox
If you do not have access to MATLAB, or some of the additional components, you can still complete Tutorial 5 using the packaged IP component that is provided in the source files.
What is the recommended workflow for the companion tutorials?
We recommend completing the companion tutorials in the order that they are provided in the workbook, and after reading the corresponding introductory chapters in The Zynq Book itself.
I started working with an older version of The Zynq Book Tutorials but have not finished. Where can I download these tutorials?
