Virtual Platform

Xilinx provides many virtual platform solutions to enable software development complementing the real hardware. For more information on Zynq-7000 AP SoC virtual platform, visit Extensible Virtual Platform

In this page, we will talk about the QEMU system model. QEMU is a generic and open source machine emulator and virtualizer. When used as a machine emulator, QEMU can run OSes and programs made for one machine (e.g. an ARM board) on a different machine (e.g. your own PC). By using dynamic translation, it achieves very good performance.

Xilinx has created a Zynq QEMU based on version 0.14.0 of QEMU. Linux has been the primary test platform for QEMU.

Please see the QEMU page,, for more general details about QEMU. The Zynq-7000 AP SoC QEMU wiki page is intended to describe the specific details about the Xilinx Zynq QEMU.
