Cannot boot using Board pynq-z1 (only "terminal Ready" testing with picocom)

Jump to solution

Hello, i am new in embedded linux by using vivado and petalinux, i have already all User Guide to install and how to work with Vivado and Petalinux until i try to make a project using vivado and petalinux sdk 2017.4 . I made a design (zynq-7000) to test spi, so the spi from my Pynq-z1 board can communicate to CAN-BUS shield. I am using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
1. i made the design using vivado 2017.4 and used hardware manger to test the communication between Pynq-z1 and CAN-Bus shield. it works!
2. i created the new project in petalinux 2017.4 (template zynq) until i succeed build using petalinux-build command and package the BOOT.BIN file and copy it plus image.ub to my micro-sd card.
3. i put the micro-sd to my pynq-z1 Board and start to boot using picocom but the result only "terminal ready" i have already wait like hours but no result. Can anyone help me? what should i do here? i already try to make new project for several times. but the result is the same. it's already like 1 month i really need help!

Hi @eyeray 

Are you connecting the picocom to the right serial port? I don't have a pynq-z1 board myself but i.e. the ZCU102 board from xilinx has 4 serial ports in the same serial-to-USB port so the device is just printing the console output in just one of them.

Regards

hi @ibaie 

thank for replying my question.

yes i am connecting to right serial port. but still cant work.

after  i try to read the UG1156 again and again i solved the problem today.

For Pnyq-Z1 its special board so i need to package boot.elf file too.
