Xilinx Zynq-7000 Extensible Processing Platform

Xilinx introduced the Zynq-7000 Extensible Processing Platform (EPP). The family consists of the Zynq-7010, Zynq-7020, Zynq-7030 and Zynq-7040 devices. The Zynq-7000 family combines an ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor-based system with 28nm, low-power programmable logic. The first silicon devices will be available in the second half of 2011. Engineering samples are expected in the first half of 2012. The Zynq-7000 family will have an entry point of below $15 in high volumes. The Zynq-7000 EPP family is ideal for video surveillance, automotive driver assistance, factory automation, and other embedded applications.
