I am relatively new to FPGA's and embedded design, but I am trying my best to learn. I recently obtained an FPGA, the blackboard, from realdigital.org, and I have been trying to follow their tutorials for a custom IP block that is connected to the ARM processor. Unfortunately, after following the tutorial and redoing 3 times, my system is not working. I am simply trying to send values to a register defined for my custom IP and enable LEDs on the board (where the last 4 bits are used to toggle led[3:0]). They provided a .tcl script to automatically configure the processing system, but I'm wondering if this is causing the error? Would it be possible for me to simply add the processing system into the block design myself without using this script?
Here is a link to the tutorial that I was trying to follow:
You still need to use the Blackboard TCL file to configure the processor (so you need to go as far as the "Create LED Controller IP" part of the realdigital tutorial you referenced). Then, try to continue on from that point in the Xilinx tutorials.
