My curiousity for the Xilinx Zynq devices got woken when I got a RedPitaya board from my father. The RedPitaya board is a open-source hardware project intended to replace expensive lab equipment. Its core piece is a Xilinx Zynw SoC with dual core ARM processor and FPGA logic. Installing the prebuilt image was too easy for me so I started to build some simple applications “from scratch”, meaning without prewritten software. In this blog I itend to write down the knowledge I have gained during the development with the RedPitaya board.
These posts show bare metal projects using the processing system.

Running Linux on the SoC opens a range of opportunities. These posts show how to run Linux on the Zynq.
I like making my life easy. Here I’d like to share some of those nifty tricks that safe you a lot of pain.
My first projects in the Electronics world involved microcontrollers. From simple 8 pin micros to multicore embedded SoCs I’ve seen them all. Some writeups of meaningful projects might appear under this category.
