I want to generate a simple analog square wave using the ZCU111 Dev Board.
How can I send a value to the DAC's in the XM500 daughter board? I can not find the net ports that correspond to the DAC Tiles in the constraints file. In the documentation regarding use of DAC's, only a GUI is used and explained, which I still don't understand if that is actually the way I should do this (it works with only 3 examples that generate sin waves, not square waves).
I attach the code of a non analog pulse train generator I made. My goal is to use the same code, adapting the output to one of the DAC's tiles. My level of understanding is beginner.

My level of understanding is beginner.
It is a complex chip for a beginner, and will require a lot of digging through TRDs, XDCs, and possibly schematics to do what your are asking.
Is this for a school project?
DocNav is your friend. Open it up and dig in.

Hi @maps-mpls ,
Doing some more research on the GUI, it looks like it is possible to generate a wave "From File", option that I am still trying to make sure it actually works for, say, a square wave.
As you have said, programming over the AXI buses seems hard but I want to learn it.
