Running SDK Helloworld.c without UART Cable

I have a board with Xilinx FPGA ultrascale+, with no UART Cable.

So far, I programmed the board by generating bitstream, Scped to the board via Ethernet cable, loaded the bitstream to FPGA, to program.

But now, I am writing code which needs to use SDK.

SDK gives several default templates such as Helloworld.c where you can program the board easily by just clicking the Green "Run" button. However, it requires UART connection as pre-requisite.

So...Is it possible to run SDK code for my FPGA-board with no UART cable?

  1. For example, is there a way to click the green Run button in the SDK code via Ethernet cable connection?

  2. Or is there a way to somehow wrap the SDK C code in my bitstream? and send the bitstream to FPGAboard via Ethernet cable to program it?

Thank you.
I would really appreciate if there is answer for 2nd question!

You can use the MDM UART, and set the STDIN/OUT to use this. Then in the XSCT open a jtagterminal
