Avnet Electronics Marketing has released MicroZed- and Zedboard-supported reference designs, tutorials, and training videos for the 7-inch Zed Touch Display Kit. The two online instructional videos review the kit's basic capabilities and give instructions on how to attach the kit to MicroZed and Zedboard for evaluation.

Avnet is offering an HDL-based display panel controller core that resides in the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC programmable logic. This display controller core is combined with an Ubuntu Linux-based reference design, which displays the Ubuntu desktop on the LCD panel and accepts touch input from the Projective Capacitive touch sensor.

"The set of tutorials and reference designs enables design teams to jump-start the creation of the interactive applications and touchscreens that are present across the electronics landscape," said Jim Beneke, vice president of global technical marketing for Avnet Electronics Marketing. "The 7-inch Zed Touch Display Kit combined with MicroZed or Zedboard offers embedded designers using the powerful Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC a complete, proven system for development, and these tutorials will help design teams implement that system much more quickly."

The 7-inch Zed Touch Display Kit includes a 7-inch LCD display assembly, a ZED LCD interface, a standard DisplayPort cable, 12v power supply, mechanical stands, and getting started instructions.
