Re: USB Embedded Processor IP

Hi,

 

The only limitations when using the free WebPACK edition of Vivado are that it's device locked and not for commercial use, so there should be no restrictions for your project.

 

In order to use the embedded processors you need to create a block design and add a processing system to it. Then you can map PS to the IO ports. There should be a lot of tutorials on how to do this.

Bank 501 is used by PS, those are fixed IOs. You can only configure them. You can't custom use them from HDL

Webpack is not restricted to non-commercial use.
