Combining Avnet’s Ultra96 hardware platform with the Open Source Python PYNQ framework has resulted in an edge platform ready for machine learning, IoT, data scientists, cryptologists and many other genres of developers. Based on Xilinx’s Zynq Ultrascale+ MPSoC with quad-core Arm Cortex-A53, dual-core Cortex-R5, Mali 400 MP2 and programmable logic capable of GFLOPs of computation: Ultra96 provides the hardware foundation which developers can build upon. 

This lecture will give an overview of the Python PYNQ environment and show you where to find the information and tools to develop your own custom applications. We will also walk through a well documented Python Jupyter Notebook running on the Ultra96 that benchmarks and demonstrates how Python can be used to control a custom Xilinx programmable hardware design that accelerates the computations of resizing digital photographic images.
