Low-cost, $99 Zynq-based Z-turn board measures 63x102mm, bristles with peripherals including HDMI, Ethernet, USB


The Z-turn Board is a low-cost and high-performance Single Board Computer (SBC) built around the Xilinx Zynq-7010 (XC7Z010-1CLG400C) or Zynq-7020 (XC7Z020-1CLG400C) All Programmable System-on-Chip (SoC) which is among the Xilinx Zynq-7000 family, featuring integrated dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with Xilinx 7-series Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) logic.

The Z-turn Board takes full features of the Zynq-7010 / 7020 SoC, it has 1GB DDR3 SDRAM and 16MB QSPI Flash on board and a set of rich peripherals including USB-to-UART, Mini USB OTG, 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet, CAN, HDMI, TF, JTAG, Buzzer, G-sensor and Temperature sensor. On the rear of the board, there are two 1.27mm pitch 80-pin SMT female connectors to allow the availability of 96 / 106 user I/O and configurable as up to 39 LVDS pairs I/O.

Z-turn Board - Xilinx Zynq-7010 / 7020 Single Board Computer

The Z-turn Board is capable of running Linux operating system. MYIR has provided Linux 3.15.0 SDK, the kernel and many drivers are in source code. The board is delivered with complete accessory kit including two USB cables, one Ethernet cable, one HDMI cable, one 4GB TF card and one 5V power adapter and product CD-ROM which enables you to start the development quickly when getting the board out-of-the-box. MYIR also offers optional WiFi and camera modules, Z-turn IO Cape for the Z-turn Board. The Z-turn IO Cape provides many peripheral signals and interfaces including ADC, GPIO, LCD, Camera and three Pmod interfaces.

The Z-turn Board is an excellent development platform for evaluating and prototyping for Zynq-7000 SoC. It can also be used as a System-on-Module (SOM) for your next embedded design; typical applications are Industrial Automation, Test & measurement, Medical Equipment, Intelligent Video Surveillance, Aerospace and military, etc.

More FAQ >>

1. Why does the Z-turn Board HDMI output need IP?

Why does the Z-turn Board HDMI output need IP?


Because although the Ubuntu on Z-turn board has already supported HDMI output, it is using xylon trial version IP and can only work within 30 minutes after booted. 

Not only the high definition output needs IP, the graphics output on Z-turn board all needs IP support, because the Zynq series SoC PS part has not integrated with LCD controller.

If you want it to display for a long time, you need to buy the license from Xylon Company. MYIR also offers reference design for HDMI and LCD display functions without limitation. The IP cores in the design are provided by Xilinx.

2. Can the Z-turn Board expansion connectors support LVDS differential input and output?

Can the Z-turn Board expansion connectors support LVDS differential input and output?


Yes. The Z-turn Board expansion connectors are most for PL ports which can support LVDS differential input, the speed is up to 200MHz in theory. But it needs customer to write IP core to implement differential logic. Please refer to the Pin-outs information of CN1 and CN2 connectors on the Z-turn Board.

3. How to use SPI1 interface on Z-turn Board?

How to use SPI1 interface on Z-turn Board?


The SPI resource is as below:

Kernel Modification
Device tree has added spidev device and the kernel has modified the configuration option:

[mw_shl_code=bash,true]Device Drivers->SPI support->[/mw_shl_code]
Select User mode SPI device driver support
spi device node is at:
After selected this option, the spi device driver can be realized in user space.
Please find relative material on net or refer to the source code:
The spi source code is at:

Device tree modification

The device tree has modified two places.
The first place is as below:
[mw_shl_code=c,true]aliases {

                ethernet0 = &gem0;
                serial0 = &uart1;
                serial1 = &uart0;
                spi0 = &qspi;
                spi1 = &spi1;              // added this row

The second place has added the spi definition.
[mw_shl_code=c,true]&spi1 {

        status = "okay";
        num-cs = <1>;
        spidev@0 {
            compatible = "spidev";
            reg = <0>;
            spi-max-frequency = <50000000>;
Enclosed herewith the compiled kernel, device tree file package as below:

  • uImagekernel image
  • devicetree.dtbdevice tree image (binary)
  • zynq-zturn.dtsdevice tree source file

4. How to debug Z-turn Board?

How to debug Z-turn Board?


You can use Xilinx JTAG emulator Xilinx USB DLC9 (Platform Cable USB) through below ways:

1. Download code FPGA array through SDK

2. Download and debug ARM kernel non-OS programs through SDK (for example, first boot program)

It is no need emulator if using Linux OS, it can update OS through TF card directly.

If there is no TF card, you can also use JTAG to download Linux OS (ramdisk file system). First, download u-boot, kernel and ramdisk to RAM through JTAG; then run the u-boot in RAM; then program through u-boot and boot Linux. This way is relative complex; we do not provide technical support.

If you need only debug the PS (ARM) part like u-boot, kernel, you can use DS-5 and DSTREAM emulator. You can also use ULINKpro or ULINKpro-D emulator.

5. Can the Z-turn Board implement HDMI input function if writing IP oneself?

Can the Z-turn Board implement HDMI input function if writing IP oneself?


No. The Z-turn board HDMI chip between CPU and HDMI interface is not bidirectional; it only has output function and no input function.

6. How can I modify to display in 1024 x 768 VGA format?

The Z-turn Board HDMI output is 1280 x 720. I need connector it to VGA monitor. I have HDMI-to-VGA converter, but the VGA can not display. How can I modify it to 1024 x 768 VGA format?


You can modify arch/arm/boot/dts/zynq-zturn-x.dtsi file, videomode=1024x768, videomode has specified resolution. Recompile devicetree, copy it to SD card and reboot again.

7. Will MYIR provide us individual license for Xilinx Zynq for each board to work with Xilinx’s FPGA?

Will MYIR provide us individual license for Xilinx Zynq for each board to work with Xilinx' FPGA?


Sorry, we won't provide any license. About the Vivado license, please refer to Xilinx' website:

We do not sell the license, you need to buy from Xilinx. Or you can use webpack version or free 30-day evaluation version.

8. Why the error occurred in tcl configuration file in Vivado?

Why the error occurred in tcl configuration file in Vivado?


When configure ZYNQ 7000 IP core in vivado, why the error occurs when using the preset tcl file from MYIR’s product disk?

That’s because the folder included in the disk is read-only. To solve the problem, we need to copy the project file from the disk to other folder and modify the folder properties.

9. Does extension interfaces (on the bottom of Z-turn board) support LVDS differential input and out?

Does extension interfaces (on the bottom of Z-turn board) support LVDS differential input and out?

Most of signals on extension interfaces on Z-turn board are from PL, they support differential input and output, and the speed can be up to 200MHz theoretically. But you have to write the IP core to realize differential logic function on PL.

10. What are the status for D7 on Z-turn Board and D1 on MYD-C7Z010/20 board?

What are the status for D7 on Z-turn Board and D1 on MYD-C7Z010/20 board?


The D7 on Z-turn Board and D1 on MYD-C7Z010/20 board are output control of the FPGA DONE.

If the FPGA has been configured successfully, D7 will be on;

If the FPGA has not been configured or failed to configured, the D7 will not be on.
