The UltraZed-EV SOM is a high performance, full-featured, System-On-Module (SOM). During the event, we'll discuss the board features and how to migrate your prototype from an Ultra96-V2 to an UltraZed-EV for those times when you require additional features for your designs.
The demos presented during this event will feature the Ultra96-V2 an Arm-based, Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+™ MPSoC development
board. This low cost board is perfect for prototyping without breaking the bank and designs can be migrated to more advanced boards like the UltraZed-EV or UltraZed-EG using Xilinx software solutions.

In the Driver's Seat: A Deep Dive into ADAS and Driver Monitor Systems
As the demands on automotive capability increase, Xilinx XA portfolio of automotive devices and supporting tool chains provide designers with the ability to achieve not only the desired performance, but also the quality, functional safety and security required.
Programmable Logic Whitepaper
Python Productivity for Zynq, or PYNQ, has the ability to present programmable logic circuits as hardware libraries called overlays. Using existing community overlays, this video on Element14 examines how a beginner can experiment with neural networks using PYNQ on Ultra96.
Using Python Overlays to Experiment with Neural Networks
How have embedded or hardware designers accommodated the trend toward video streams requiring higher resolution, higher data rates, and overall more compute-intensive applications? This webinar on Element14 will present an example of how this is done using the video-centric Avnet UltraZed-EV platform.
