SDSoC supplies a full system optimising compiler targeting both the ARM processors and the programmable logic. SDSoC is designed to enable software teams to rapidly configure, generate macro and micro architectures with automated system connectivity generation. The result is optimal system connectivity and memory interfaces, and rapid system exploration of performance, throughput and latency with short design iteration times, stated the company. The compiler leverages a foundational high-level synthesis compiler technology. In addition, SDSoC provides Xilinx libraries and optional hardware optimised libraries from Alliance Member Auviz Systems.

Building on the advanced software profiling found in the Xilinx SDK, which enables software-hardware performance measurement of a completed design running on a Zynq platform, SDSoC adds rapid system performance estimation. Leveraging the rapid system performance estimation, users can specify which functions should be accelerated in programmable logic and SDSoC instruments the C/C++ code to report software cycles and estimates for the data transfer as well as overall application speedup. This enables early and rapid generation and exploration for optimal total system performance and power.

SDSoC provides board support packages (BSP) for Zynq All Programmable SoC-based development boards including the ZC702, ZC706, as well as third party and market specific platforms including the Zedboard, MicroZed, ZYBO, and video and imaging development kits. The BSPs include metadata abstracting the platform from software developers and system architects easing the creation, integration and verification of smarter heterogeneous systems.
