Hi @Sonal,

If you want to stick to the ZYNQ, we've replaced the original Zybo with Zybo Z7. https://store.digilentinc.com/zybo-z7-zynq-7000-arm-fpga-soc-development-board/. It comes in two FPGA sizes depending on your needs. It's an upgrade from the original board. It also comes with a MIPI connector for interfacing camera in case you also have classes on video processing. This would be the best replacement if you'll like to stick to the same form factor, same FPGA and have a bit more capability. 

If you don't plan on going on with a ZYNQ and want to switch to a Artix FPGA I recommend Nexys A7 which we recommend for ECE students. https://store.digilentinc.com/nexys-a7-fpga-trainer-board-recommended-for-ece-curriculum/ This also comes with two FPGA sizes. 

Both boards come with leds buttons, switches, Ethernet 5 Pmod connectors. Nexys comes with VGA and Zybo Z7 with HDMI. Nexys has 7 segm display but Zybo Z7 has the camera interface and audio interface. 

Both would suit you for the ECE class.

If you have questions about the boards, let me know.

Best regards,
