I've been loaned a dev board while I await delivery of the development kit we are expecting.
Unfortunately there is precious little information regarding the board and I'm told that Vivado board support is in the pipeline... I have a Trenz Electronic TE0715 (Zync XC7Z015) connected to a Trenz Electronic TE0701.
I connect with a USB cable to the USB connection on the board which is in the JTAG chain.
My problem is that I can specify a device but not a board type. When I try to make a design using GPIO or UART I get errors about pins not being constrained. I cannot run the Hello World template without a UART in the design.
Is there anything that can be done just so I can make a start with the FPGA? I ran the Peripheral test template in SDK - I think it worked(?) DOwnloaded to the board without error but I saw nothing on the terminal in SDK.
Any help / ideas I'd be very grateful.

Thanks for the reply!
All I have is a schematic, but I can see the pin locations of the MIO pins.
I am connecting via usb. All I want to achieve for now is a simple Hello World application running in the SDK and see the output in the terminal or the console.
For a hello world example (purely PS system) what pins is the output data on? Is it M_AXI_GPO?
Should I add a separate UART to the design or enable the UART in the zync? I guess any UART port should be made external. What about FIXED_IO or GPIO??
Whatever the output pin is - should I map this to the USB pins detailed on the schematic?
