This book introduces the Zynq® MPSoC (Multi-Processor System-on-Chip), an embedded device from Xilinx® that combines a processing system that includes Arm® Cortex®-A53 application and Arm Cortex-R5 real-time processors, alongside FPGA programmable logic. The book covers the architecture of the device, the design tools and methods, conventional hardware/software co-design approach, and the newer software-defined methodology, as well as hardware and software development, multiprocessing, safety, security and platform management, system booting, and special features on PYNQ (a Python-based framework) and machine learning applications. This book should serve as a useful guide for those getting starting with, and the working with Zynq MPSoC, and equally as a reference for technical managers wishing to gain familiarity with the device and its associated design methodologies.

The authoring team from University of Strathclyde in Scotland was led by Louise Crockett, with key technical and design chapters from David Northcote, Craig Ramsay, Fraser Robinson, and input from Bob Stewart. We are also pleased to note contributions from: Sarunas (Shawn) Kalade, and Josh Goldsmith of Strathclyde University; Patrick Lysaght, Cathal McCabe, Giulio Gambardella, Thomas Preusser, Yaman Umuroglu, and Michaela Blott of Xilinx; and Phil Karagiannakis, Murray Ireland, and Steve Greenland of Craft Prospect Ltd. The team were supported by Xilinx colleagues and in particular we thank Patrick Lysaght for championing the project since its inception, and Cathal McCabe for his “book management” during the last couple of years.
