Digilent Genesys ZU

The Digilent Genesys ZU is a stand-alone Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC prototyping and development board. It is an advanced computing platform with powerful multimedia and network connectivity interfaces. The excellent mix of on-board peripherals, upgrade-friendly DDR4, Mini PCIe and microSD slots, multi-camera and high-speed expansion connectors are bound to support a wide number of use-cases. Furthermore, the Genesys ZU is available in two variants with different MPSoC options and additional features for even more flexibility. Differences are highlighted* throughout this document. The Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC at the heart of the Genesys ZU is a big leap from the Zynq-7000 series. Faster and more processor cores, upgraded memory interface, integrated gigabit transceivers bring support for DDR4, USB Type-C 3.1, PCIe, SATA, DisplayPort, SFP+* and HDMI*. The Genesys ZU is primarily targeted towards Linux-based applications that allows easy access to Wi-Fi, cellular radio (WWAN), SSD, USB SuperSpeed and 4K video. The bundled microSD card includes an out-of-box demo that boots a Linux image built in Petalinux and includes some test scripts for some of the peripherals.
