Avnet Offers New Reference Designs and Tutorials for 7″ Zed Touch Display Kit
Developing an interactive GUI or touchscreen application? Avnet Electronics Marketing announced new reference designs, tutorials, and training videos for the 7″ Zed Touch Display Kit. The designs are supported on either the MicroZed or Zedboard kits.
To facilitate designs using the 7″ Zed Touch Display Kit, Avnet is providing an HDL-based display panel controller core that resides in the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC programmable logic. This display controller core is combined with an Ubuntu Linux-based reference design, which displays the Ubuntu desktop on the LCD panel and accepts touch input from the Projective Capacitive touch sensor.
In addition, Avnet has created two online instructional videos for the 7″ Zed Touch Display Kit.
The set of tutorials and reference designs enables design teams to jumpstart the creation of the interactive applications and touchscreens that are present across the electronics landscape, said Jim Beneke, vice president of global technical marketing for Avnet Electronics Marketing. The Zed Touch Display Kit combined with MicroZed or Zedboard offers embedded designers using the powerful Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC a complete, proven system for development, and these tutorials will help design teams implement that system much more quickly.
