Zynq Development Simplified by Dyplo Software System

Dyplo is a software system for Zynq which distributes tasks to the ARM Cortex-A9 processor system (PS) and the programmable-logic (PL) fabric, linking scalable data streams via standard AXI interfaces between individual FPGA and processor-executed software processes. Isolate software functions for hardware implementation, prototype them in software and then transform them into hardware to accelerate performance while maintaining interface behaviour. Along with a range of compatible Zynq-based kits, Dyplo is available now from Direct Insight.
