Announcing: PYNQ v3.0.1 for Avnet ZUBoard-1CG


The SD card image is now available for download through PYNQ - Python productivity for Zynq - Board

The github can be found here: GitHub - Avnet/ZUBoard_1CG-PYNQ

This is the first release of PYNQ for this brand new board. The board features an AMD ZU1CG MPSoC part with similar fpga resources as the PYNQ Z1 & Z2 boards that use a AMD 7020 SoC. However the fpga logic for the ZUBoard is 16nm Ultrascale+ and it has 216 enhanced DSP48s. The CPUs on the ZU1 are 2 ARM53 and 2 R5 cores. The board is the least inexpensive MPSoC board that I know of at this time.

The ZUBoard can be purchased through Avnet’s website, found here: Avnet ZUBoard 1CG




Appreciate the work.
But how do you check all the sanity of the Image?
This could help preventing the risk of possible development issue.


Hi Brian, Thank you.

Don’t worry, I’ve been doing this for other boards and both U96’s since 2018 and I work directly with AMD when needed.

If there is a major issue of course we fix it and do another release :slight_smile:

Kind regards,

So you dont have any automation fault check nor base overlay to run most basic function on board to verify the sanity.
I guess it is better to label untested to others and remind this is just a Image without tested.


@briansune thank you for your concern. You sound like you have a lot of experience in these matters. It would be very nice if you could help do additional verification. I may reach out to you when it comes time to do the next release.

May you all find PYNQ for the ZUBoard 1CG useful!

Kind regards


Welcome to help, however, it will not do any harm to label as untested.
So reduce possible future troubles.

Even I had generated couples of MYIR board based PYNQ image, I won’t take the risk on releasing them as no strong and matured test script to verify the sanity of these images.
