Query on PYNQ board

Hi, 

I have a query with respect to the PYNQ board. Although I have experience with Zynq, I am not familiar with Python or the Linux environment. Can I work with the PYNQ board in the same manner I would use the Zedboard? This means, can I develop and program my hardware designs on Zynq using Vivado and can I develop and program the software design on Zynq using SDK?

Also, can the software programming be done as bare-metal, i.e. without any OS running? 

 

Thanks,

Dimple

@dimple.sharma You can use the Pynq like any other board and run it bare metal- there's no requirement to run any of the Linux/Python stuff with it.

Re: Query on PYNQ board

Hello,

 

Is there any pre-defined .hdf (hardware platform specification) available for the PYNQ board in Xiinx SDK? I copied the PYNQ-Z1 board files from Github and copied them in the Vivado and SDK installation folders. Vivado does allow selection of the PYNQ board while making a new project. However, SDK does not show any pre-defined hardware platform filesfor PYNQ.

 

Is such a file available online? Many people say it can be obtained from the SDK folder in the Github repository for PYNQ. However, I am unable to locate the folder anywhere. Does someone have a link to these files or folder?

Thank you.
