Using a Zynq as a USB UART

Hello everyone,

 

I was not sure if it is possible but I have a smart sensor which can be interfaced using usb-uart. I was wondering if it is possible to use the USB host port on ultrazed board in a baremetal application to communicate with this sensor. How can I do uart on a general usb port? is there any examples about this?

 

Sincere regards,

Keyvan

Just to clarify - this is a sensor with an integrated USB-UART, and you're using the Zynq as a host to drive that USB-UART?

 

Doing it bare-metal is likely to be tricky. A quick look does not reveal any ready-to-go libraries that would do the job for you. Any chance of putting Linux on there?

Tnx @u4223374 for fast response,

 

Yes exactly, the sensor device has integrated usb-uart. I already have an SDSoC prj to work with the sensor with Linux. I just wanted to make a baremetal version to compare the performance since I need multiple sensors of this kind and I need continuous reads from all of them.

 

Sincere Regards,

Keyvan
