Tokyo Electron Device Limited (TED) has today announced the development of the TB-7Z-020-EMC extension microcontroller card fitted with a Zynq™-7000 All Programmable SoC.
Released under TED's inrevium* brand, the TB-7Z-020-EMC is an evaluation platform fitted with both an ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPcore with on-chip connection to an FPGA fabric and a Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC that incorporates a range of peripheral functions. It can be used to implement evaluation systems into various different development projects.
Large logic development projects typically require hardware and software engineers to share the limited number of evaluation systems. In particular, development inefficiencies arise such as the long time simulation and lack of seamless emulation, if software engineers are unable to use their evaluation system frequently.
When used in conjunction with TED's TB-7V-2000T-LSI ASIC development test platform or FPGA evaluation platforms fitted with an FMC connector, the TB-7Z-020-EMC facilitates task separation between hardware and software engineers, helps budget cut and reduce the development time significantly. The new TB-7Z-020-EMC features ease of connection to the main FPGA evaluation platform,and software engineers can use it to test the performance repeatedly on the real hardware during the development process. This provides a system-level evaluation environment that can be used with greater efficiency than was possible in the past.
By featuring small size and a wide range of interfaces, TB-7Z-020-EMC goes far beyond just connection ability with FPGA evaluation platform. The card can also demonstrate its high level performance and design productivity not only as the development environment, but also for the development of the application which require powerful ARM processor such as Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. With supporting FMC connector, additional interfaces can be added easily to support the targeted application. This means that the TB-7Z-020-EMC can facilitate innovative product developments, and also can satisfy the diverse needs of developments to differentiate their products from competitors. Software reference designs are also available, including design for connection to various types of FPGA evaluation boards, for DVI interface and for Linux-based embedded systems.
• Shortens development time by providing a system-level development environment
• Faster and higher quality software development
• High degree of expandability facilitates reuse of design resources

Enterprises can achieve rigorous IT security as well as improved DevOps practices and Cloud economics by taking a new, cloud-native approach to application delivery. Because the attack surface for cloud applications is dramatically different than for highly controlled data centers, a disciplined and multi-layered approach that spans all of your processes, staff, vendors and technologies is required. This may sound expensive and time consuming to achieve as you plan how to move selected applicati...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
