The four devices of the Zynq-7000 EPP family allow designers to target cost sensitive as well as high-performance applications from a single platform using industry-standard tools. The tight integration of the processing system with programmable logic allows designers to build accelerators and peripherals to speed key functions by up to 10x. ARM architecture and ecosystem maximizes productivity and eases development for software and hardware developers.
Designers have access to a number of different tools to start designing with the Zynq-7000 EPP:
Zynq-7000 Extensible Processing Platform Block Diagram and Product Features
Unlike ASICs and ASSPs, which do not offer needed flexibility and scalability, Zynq-7000 devices allow designers to modify their design throughout the development phase and after the system is in production. In addition, the Zynq-7000 EPP family, with over 3000 interconnections between its processing system and the programmable logic, offers levels of performance that two-chip solutions (ASSP+FPGA) cannot match due to limited IO bandwidth and limited power budgets.
Zynq-7000 Family Enables Highly Differentiated Applications to Market
While each device in the Zynq-7000 EPP family contains the same ARM dual-core Cortex-A9 MPCore based processing system, programmable logic and I/O resources vary between devices and serve a wide range of applications.

"For more than 10 years we have been discussing exactly this symbiosis possibility of processor and FPGA on one die to reduce cost and PCB space. Over time several companies have tried such an approach, but none of them offered a tight integration that allowed us to meet our targets. Finally, our long time wish becomes reality with the Xilinx Zynq-7000 family. This means Agilent can now create many different product variants on a common code base from low-end, mid-range, to high-end, with minimal cost and engineering overhead."
