Virtual platform for developing sys based on Xilinx' Zynq-7000

Xilinx, Inc. and Cadence Design Systems Inc have teamed to develop the virtual platform to enable system design, software development, and testing of Xilinx Zynq-7000 Extensible Processing Platform (EPP) based systems in advance of hardware availability.

"Since 2008, Xilinx has been building a comprehensive development offering for the Zynq-7000 EPP that includes hardware emulation and early access to software, giving many customers the opportunity to have their systems up and running already," said Lawrence Getman, Vice President of Processing Platforms at Xilinx., vice president, Processing Platforms at Xilinx. "The Cadence/Xilinx solution takes embedded software development to a whole new level by mapping it to the Zynq-7000 family's unique extensibility without the need for any hardware other than the designers' workstation."

Built upon Cadence Virtual System Platform (VSP) technology, part of the Cadence System Development Suite, the virtual platform provides a stable, feature-rich, fast and functionally accurate model of the Zynq-7000 EPP processor system, its peripherals, memory and I/O, capable of booting Linux and other operating systems, says Xilinx.

"This new extensible virtual platform increases productivity for concurrent development of system architecture, hardware and software," said Michal Siwinski, group director of product marketing, System & Software Realization Group, Cadence. "As software content continues to grow, software-driven, system-level development methodologies are critical to the success of embedded systems- a concept detailed in the EDA360 vision."
