New streamlined dual-core members join Xilinx' Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC family of devices, expanding the Zynq MPSoC portfolio scalability, to include dual application and real-time processor combinations.

These dual-core devices add processing scalability at a lower cost entry point to the current Zynq UltraScale+ family, which offers quad ARM Cortex-A53s, dual Cortex-R5s, a graphics processing unit, and a video codec unit. Designers can choose from three device types within the scalable processing portfolio to address processing requirements across a breadth of markets, including motor control, sensor fusion, medical endoscopy, and handheld radios.

"The embedded market consists of a diverse set of applications, with customers seeking efficient and scalable technologies that can be deployed across a range of platforms and markets," said Ian Ferguson, vice president for worldwide marketing and strategic alliances at ARM.

Availability The dual-core CG devices will be supported on Vivado Design Suite, version 2016.3 in Q4 2016. Customers can start designing today using existing Zynq UltraScale+ devices and migrate their designs when the dual-core CG devices are available in 1H2017.
