Welcome to the Xilinx Wiki!

The purpose of the wiki is to provide you with the tools you need to complete projects and tasks which use Xilinx products. We are committed to working with communities to contribute high quality code in our publicly available GIT repositories.

Linux made easy

PetaLinux Tools offers everything necessary to customize, build and deploy Embedded Linux solutions on Xilinx processing systems. Tailored to accelerate design productivity, the solution works with the Xilinx hardware design tools to ease the development of Linux systems for Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoCs, and MicroBlaze. More information is available on the PetaLinux wiki page

Look at the Getting Started page and the Quick Start Guide.


The Xilinx Linux project is a customized non-commercial Linux distribution catered towards development on Zynq AP SoC and MicroBlaze. Developers new to Linux may wish to consider commercial Linux solutions instead.


MicroBlaze™ is the Xilinx FPGA-based, 32- bit RISC Harvard architecture soft processor. It supports advanced architecture options such as AXI interface, Memory Management Unit (MMU), instruction and data-side cache, configurable pipeline depth and Floating-Point unit (FPU). The soft processor core is included with the Xilinx software tools.

Join the Community: Access our Git servers & Submit Patches

We encourage our customers to share their code; see Create and Submit a Patch to contibute your code. We are working on sending all of the code we develop upstream.You can access the code we develop by visiting our Git server:https://github.com/xilinx which is managed by Git (http://git-scm.com/).
