The board can be purchased stand-alone or with a voucher to unlock the Xilinx SDSoC toolset. The SDSoC voucher unlocks a 1 year license that can be used with the Zybo Z7. After the license expires, any version of SDSoC that was released during this 1 year period can continue to be used indefinitely. For more information on purchasing, see the Zybo Z7 Product Page. At the time of purchase, it is also possible to add-on a microSD card, 5V 2.5A power supply, and micro USB cable as needed. A small fan ( Zybo Z7 Fan Datasheet) that attaches to the heat sink can be added on to the Zybo Z7-20 too, however this fan will not work with the Zybo Z7-10.
The Zybo Z7-20 has a connector that can be used to power a fan mounted to the included heat sink. In order to attach the fan to the Zybo Z7-20 heat sink, two of the included screws must be tightened into the space between the heat sink fins (the heat sink does not contain mounting holes). The fan must be attached with the label facing down, towards the Zynq device, in order to push the air flow in the correct direction. After mounting the fan, plug the fan into the 3-pin fan connector (J14) on the Zybo Z7-20 to use it. A Zybo Z7-20 with the fan properly attached is shown in Figure 14.1.
A MIPI CSI-2 Receiver IP core is available from Xilinx, and includes embedded Linux support. It requires a license in order to use, however it is possible to obtain an evaluation license from Xilinx for free.
