Boards & Education Accelerate AI & IoT Projects

Avnet’s Ultra96 is described as a low-cost, easy-to-use platform based on the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC. Avnet offers technical training courses for designing IoT and AI applications with the Ultra96 development board, and ultimately to reduce the time and complexity of prototype development. Both introductory and advanced courses are available, offered online and in numerous cities nationwide by Hackster.io and comprised of educational presentations plus hands-on labs. The labs are built on Avnet’s Ultra96, and support both the V1 and V2 boards, the latter of which Avnet announced earlier this year.

To expand capabilities for the Ultra96 platform, the company offers the 96Boards Click Mezzanine. Introduced as a low-cost, add-on board, it enables users to connect the 96Board’s low-speed header to Click Boards by MikroElektronika and easily add sensors, controls, relays and more to the MPSoC. Click Boards also offer personalization for any end application, reducing the risk of designing on custom boards.

Introductory courses are available immediately at hackster.io/workshops/ultra96. Advanced courses will be available in June. The introductory three-course bundle is available for $59, and each advanced workshop will be an additional $99. For more details, the following resources await your discerning eye:
