Linux made easy

PetaLinux Tools offers everything necessary to customize, build and deploy Embedded Linux solutions on Xilinx processing systems. Tailored to accelerate design productivity, the solution works with the Xilinx hardware design tools to ease the development of Linux systems for Zynq®-7000 SoCs, and MicroBlaze. More information is available on the PetaLinux wiki page

Linux Drivers and Baremetal Drivers and Libraries are documented on these pages.


The Xilinx Linux project is a customized non-commercial Linux distribution catered towards development on Zynq SoC and MicroBlaze. Developers new to Linux may wish to consider commercial Linux solutions instead.


MicroBlaze™ is the Xilinx FPGA-based, 32- bit RISC Harvard architecture soft processor. It supports advanced architecture options such as AXI interface, Memory Management Unit (MMU), instruction and data-side cache, configurable pipeline depth and Floating-Point unit (FPU). The soft processor core is included with the Xilinx software tools.
