Led blink in Zedboard

Hello, 

 

Can anyone please provide an example or tutorial for blinking LED on a Zedboard. 

I'm a newbie and having some trouble with figuring out which LED or gpio address to use on a zedboard.

I have seen some ZC706 example but the address isn't the same for a Zedboard. 

 

I appreciate the help. Thank you.

is a youtube video.

 

It doesn't get any easier than this:  search, read, listen, watch, do, learn.

Re: Led blink in Zedboard

Hi @austin, I have searched and found results for other boards including the video tutorial you've provided. It's for ZC702 and not zedboard.

Re: Led blink in Zedboard

n,

 

They all use the same Zynq device.  I suggest when you understand even one example, you will be able to do the Zedboard one.  As an adjunct professor myself, I know my students may cheat, by finding an online already worked example.  My labs are carefully chosen each class so the student must at least solve it themselves (not copy it).  So I google first and modify the task so there is no exact solution that may be merely copied and submitted.

 

But it is perfectly OK to find a solution for another board, and modify it and test it, so it works on the new target.  That requires you actually understand what you are doing.  So to learn, you must do.  To do, you must understand.  To understand you must read.  I would start with the Zedbook, if you have a Zedboard -- start at page 1, and read to the end.  Work all examples, problems, etc.  And before that, learn an understand VHDL or verilog, c programming as well (prerequisites for any SoC work).
