The Z-turn Board is designed by MYIR. It 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 board is capable of running Linux and excellent for evaluating and prototyping for Zynq-7000 SoC.
