Xilinx Zynq®-7000 All Programmable SoC devices fuse a fast processor system (PS) based on two 1GHz ARM Cortex™-A9 MPCore processors with the industry’s fastest and most advanced 28nm programmable logic (PL) fabric, a large on-chip memory, multiple high-speed serial transceivers, numerous hardened peripheral IP cores including DDR and Flash memory controllers, and an on-chip analog-processing block that incorporates two 1Msamples/sec A/D converters. Xilinx’s use of the TSMC 28nm HPL process technology has resulted in a product family that offers unmatched performance with low operating power. The ARM Cortex-A9 microprocessors operate 25% faster than the ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore processor cores in competing devices.
