PHOENIX -- November 6, 2013

Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT),
today introduced the MicroZed™ 7020 System-on-Module featuring the Xilinx®
Zynq®-7000 XC7Z020-1CLG400C All Programmable SoC, with three times more
programmable logic, allowing engineers to run more complex applications for
models in evaluation and prototyping, embedded SOM, embedded vision, test and
measurement, motor control, and software-defined radio.

The 7020 system-on-module (SOM) version is ideal for designers who want to
design-in the higher density SOM into their products. It is available now at
$289 in quantities less than 100, adding to the current MicroZed 7010
Evaluation Kit (available for $199) and the MicroZed 7010 SOM-only version,
starting at $192 in quantities less than 100.

The Zynq-7000 Z-7020 device includes 85,000 logic cells, 560 KB extensible
block RAM, 220 programmable DSP slices, among other features that
differentiate the MicroZed 7020 from the original MicroZed Evaluation Kit,
which includes the Zynq-7000 Z-7010 device. MicroZed’s combined stand-alone,
SOM approach can quickly move a design idea from concept to production, making
MicroZed an ideal, low-cost platform for SoC-based applications.

“By expanding our offering with the new 7020 version, Avnet gives designers
more flexibility to choose a module that best fits their needs,” said Jim
Beneke, vice president of global technical marketing for Avnet Electronics
Marketing. “Simply put, the MicroZed 7020 allows engineers to create more
sophisticated hardware designs.”

“The Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC XC7Z020 device supports a wide range of
applications across a wide range of markets from motor control and medical
imaging, to driver assistance and wireless communications,” said Barrie
Mullins, director of SoC product management and marketing for Xilinx. “The
Zynq-7000 XC7Z020 device provides a scalable All Programmable SoC platform
with a dual 866Mhz ARM Cortex-A9 processing system, DSP capability of over 200
GMACs and programmable logic for software accelerators and custom IP.”
