A Double-Barreled Way to Get the Most from Your Zynq SoC



One of the many benefits
of the Xilinx® Zynq®-7000
All Programmable SoC is
that it is has two ARM®
Cortex™-A9 processors
onboard. However, many
bare-metal applications and simpler operating
systems use only one of the two
ARM cores in the Zynq SoC’s processing
system (PS), a design choice that can potentially
limit system performance.
Depending upon the application in development,
there could, however, be a need
to have both processors running bare-metal
applications, or to run different operating
systems on each of the processors. For
instance, one side could be performing
critical calculations and hence running a
bare-metal/RTOS application while the second
processor is providing HMI and communications
using Linux.
