Xilinx Zynq Support from Embedded Coder

Generate code for the ARM portion of the Zynq-7000 SoC

Capabilities and Features

Embedded Coder® Support Package for Xilinx® Zynq®-7000 Platform supports generation of ANSI/ISO C/C++ code targeting the Cortex-A9 MPcore processor of the Zynq SOC.

Additionally, for NEON-optimized code implementing DSP filters, use the ARM® Cortex A® Ne10 Library Support from DSP System Toolbox™

When used in combination with Xilinx Zynq support from HDL Coder™, this solution can be utilized in a hardware/software workflow spanning simulation, prototyping, verification, and implementation on Xilinx Zynq devices and platforms. This makes it easier to integrate Model-Based Design into your workflow, enabling fast design iteration cycles and helping you to detect and correct design and specification errors early.

Embedded Coder hardware support packages offer built-in, limited, support for specific hardware, schedulers, and compilers. Please click the Request Hardware Support link if you seek additional hardware support.
