For embedded Designs, use the Xilinx Wiki to expand on what you have learned from the documentation.
I have encountered a specific issue:
Use the Search functionality on the Xilinx Support Site, which will return results from our documentation, Answer Records including Known Issues and Design Advisories, Our Forums, and the Wiki.
Xilinx Support Resources
Before we go into detail on the different systems, did you know that Xilinx has an alert system that will notify you when Product Documentation is updated or published, including Product Change/Discontinuation Notices, and Design Advisory Answer Records?
You can follow the steps in (Xilinx Answer 18683) to set this up now for the Xilinx products you are interested in.
Note: The Notifications system does not automatically add new products to your alerts when they come out. If a new Xilinx product is released which you are interested in, make sure to add it to your existing alerts.
The Xilinx Documentation Navigator is a free tool which comes with Vivado but can also be downloaded separately.
It contains the same documentation as the Documentation Navigator, but also includes the Xilinx Knowledge Base and Community Forums.
A search term entered in the Search box here will return results from all of these resources along with the Xilinx Wiki.
This is a good option if you are encountering a particular issue or situation in your design and want to find more information.
Xilinx Knowledge Base
The Xilinx Knowledge Base is made up of Answer Records, short articles which are supplementary to the formal documentation.
Articles can describe known issues, explain error messages, or give general guidance on your design.
Note: If you encounter an error message in Vivado Design Suite, you can also search to see if there is an Answer Record related to it from within the tool:
Design Advisories are a special type of Answer Record containing information about issues which are potentially severe enough to be design halting.
Notifications about new or updated Design Advisories are sent out as part of the alerts system mentioned above. It is recommended to sign up for alerts by following the steps in (Xilinx Answer 18683) so that if there are any Design Advisories for your product you will be notified.
The Xilinx Forums are also a great resource for support, as other customers might have a similar use-case to you, or might have run into a similar issue. Xilinx Employees Moderate the forums and regularly take part in discussions here. The forums also include a number of blogs, including the Design and Debug Techniques blog that you are reading this article on.
To make it easier to determine high quality answers in the forum, posts which resolve the issue can be marked as an accepted solution by the original poster.
The Xilinx Wiki has an embedded design focus, covering topics such as Linux and U-boot, and providing getting started tutorials and reference designs for MicroBlaze, Zynq-7000, and Zynq UltraScale+ devices.
Material in the wiki is intended to be supplementary to the User Guides, so make sure to check the formal documentation first, then use the wiki to build out your knowledge.
