setup the new project for the new zedboard we just got

Jump to solution

Dear Sir/Madam,

We got the zedboard and tried to set it up in the vivado and never found any board looks like the zedboard in vivado, File->new, Select Project Template.

Could someone show me where to pick the zedboard in the vivado?

Thanks

Andrew

Hi @aklui 

Just use File > New project (not example project) and select the Zedboard as target.

Then create a new BD and add the zynq IP. You should have the option to run design automation which will configure the zynq automatically for the zedboard.

Then you just have to use the zynq base design you add for zc702 as referecne for your new project.

hello,

maybe you need to install the board file of ZEDBOARD and add its files in $installationfile_src\Vivado\201X.Y\data\boards\board_files

 

this is the board file for boards, clone it and copy the zedboard files inside the board_files.

https://github.com/Digilent/vivado-boards/tree/master/new/board_files

regards,

 

ps: X and Y represent the version of the vivado that you are using

Hello,

Thanks 

When I checked my area C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2019.1\data\boards\board_files\zed\1.4, I did see the following files already:

board, changelog, part0_pins, preset, and zed_board. However, in the File-> New Project:

I checked

                   . Example Project

                   click Next>

It shows in the dialog window the following Templates:

                 Base Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC

                 MicroBlaze Application Configuration for_SP701

                 Base MicroBlaze

                Base Zynq

                BFT

                Configurable MicroBlaze Design

                Configurable Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC Design

                CPU(HDL)

                CPU(Sunthesized)

               Wavegen(HDL)

For the previous project, we choose Base Zynq, which matches our zc702 board.

Is it because there is no template for the Zedboard?

Thanks 

Andrew
