Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC is the AMD second-generation Zynq platform, combining a powerful processing system (PS) and user-programmable logic (PL) into the same device. The processing system features the Arm® flagship Cortex®-A53 64-bit quad-core or dual-core processor and Cortex-R5F dual-core real-time processor. In addition to the cost and integration benefits previously provided by the Zynq 7000 devices, the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC and RFSoC devices also provide these new features and benefits.

Scalable PS with scaling for power and performance.

Low-power running mode and sleep mode.

Flexible user-programmable power and performance scaling.

Advanced configuration system with device and user-security support.

Extended connectivity support including PCIe®, SATA, and USB 3.0 in the PS.

Advanced user interface(s) with GPU and DisplayPort in the PS.

RF circuitry for with up to 16 channels of RF-ADCs and RF-DACs (RFSoC devices).

Increased DRAM and PS-PL bandwidth.

Improved memory traffic using Arm's advanced QoS regulators.

Improved safety and reliability.

These new devices offer the flexibility and scalability of an FPGA, while providing the performance, power, and ease-of-use typically associated with ASICs and ASSPs. The range of the Zynq UltraScale+ family enables designers to target cost-sensitive and high-performance applications from a single platform using industry-standard tools. There are two versions of the PS; dual Cortex-A53 and quad Cortex-A53. The features of the PL vary from one device type to another. As a result, the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoCs are able to serve a wide range of applications including:

Automotive driver assistance, driver information, and infotainment.

Broadcast camera.

Industrial motor control, industrial networking, and machine vision.

IP and smart camera.

LTE radio and baseband.

Medical diagnostics and imaging.

Multifunction printers.

Video and night vision equipment.

Wireless radio.

Single-chip computer.
