Embedded Design with PetaLinux Tools
This intermediate-level, two-day course provides embedded systems developers with experience in creating an embedded Linux system targeting a Zynq® All Programmable System on a Chip (SoC) processor development board using PetaLinux Tools. The course offers students hands-on experience with building the environment and booting the system using a Zynq All Programmable SoC design with PetaLinux Tools on the ARM® Cortex™-A9 processor.
This course also introduces embedded Linux components, use of open-source components, environment configurations, network components, and debugging options for embedded Linux platforms. The primary focus is on embedded Linux development in conjunction with the Xilinx tool flow.
