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.

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

Zynq-7000 AP SoC

Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoCs (AP SoC) are processor-centric platforms that offer software, hardware and I/O programmability in a single chip.

Zynq UltraScale MPSoC

The UltraScale™ Multi-Processing System on Chip (MPSoC) Architecture built on TSMC’s 16nm FinFET process technology, enables Next Generation 16nm Zynq® UltraScale MPSoCs.

Linux, OS, Hypervisors & Boot

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.
