In this paper, some research results on deploying an embedded computer using Linux operating system on Xilinx's ZYNQ hardware platform are presented. ICs of the Zyqn family released in the last 10 years have been reshaping popular embedded computing platforms, with flexible synergies between ARM and FPGA family of processors that deliver high efficiency first. In this paper, a high-speed GPIO design is implemented, in which the hardware on the FPGA, the driver on the Linux operating system, and the control software are jointly implemented. The test results have demonstrated the ability of the GPIO port to operate at high speed and flexibility when controlled via software on the Linux operating system.
