Eclypse Z7: Zynq-7000 SoC Development Board with SYZYGY-compatible Expansion


The Eclypse Z7 is Digilent’s newest FPGA/SoC designed to enable systems that are ultra high-speed and highly modular, featuring Xilinx’s Zynq-7000 PSoC. Zynq, plus the Zmod expansions and Digilent’s new software architecture results in a powerful research and prototyping platform optimized for productivity and accelerated design flow, making it the perfect product for instrumentation applications such as software defined radio, ultrasound, medical technology, and much more. As a host board for Zmods, the open-source SYZYGY-compliant expansion modules, Eclypse Z7 is designed to be highly flexible without the overhead of starting designs from scratch. Check out our Zmod ADC 1410 and Zmod DAC 1411 for more information!

Users can get started with the Eclypse Z7 immediately as Petalinux is supported right out of the box. Pre-built Linux images are accompanied by a software API for bulk data transfer. Digilent offers fully open and customizable hardware designs, Linux images, and Linux software applications.
