UHD SDI Example Design - Vivado Version

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

Which version of Vivado supports ZCU106? 

 

I am trying to set up a UHD-SDI example design for one of my projects. The example design is available only for ZCU106. I tried with 2017.2, 2017.3 and 2017.4. None of them seems to support ZCU106.

 

Or, is there a special installation to add this board to Vivado?

 

Thanks,

Ajay.

Hello @ajaykumargurrala,

 

Do you have access for the EA lounge of this board ?

It will have steps to add the feature of this board into the tool.

Also refer the below link:

https://www.xilinx.com/products/intellectual-property/uhd-serial-digital-interface/uhd-serial-digital-interface-software-requirements.html

 

UHD-SDI is supported from 2017.3 version of vivado.

Please reach to licensing center for more help.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.

Hi @ajaykumargurrala,

 

Generating the UHD-SDI example design in 2017.3 and 2017.4 is documented in AR#70063.

 

Users shouldn't need to have the EA license for the ZCU106. Just select the production part xczu7ev-ffvc1156-2-i and you can generate the UHD-SDI exdes.

Hi Florent,

 

I have tried this out! I get the same error message which reports xczu7ev-ffvc1156-2-i_es2 part is missing and the example design is not generated completely. 

 

I am using Vivado 2017.4.1 

 

I have attached the snapshots of the error message and the project window of the generated design. the error message screen shot was older but i get the same message but with part number updated.

 

I have followed the following steps.

-I have opened the common vivado 2017.4.1 project which i have created to use in generating example designs

-I have changed the part number to the part number suggested by you

-I have added the UHD-SDI RX subsystem to block design, configured it as 3G SDI , right click and generate IP example design.

 

A new project was opened with the example design, which has thrown an error message as shown in attachment1(capture.png) and ended up as shown in attachment2(capture2.png).

 

Did i miss anything in the flow?

 

Thanks and Regards,

Ajay.

Hi @ajaykumargurrala,

 

You are right sorry. I thought the goal of the patch (from the AR) was to enable any customer to generate the UHD-SDI exdes...

 

Let me clarify that.

Hi @ajaykumargurrala,

 

We have updated the patch from AR#70593. This allows user to generate the UHD-SDI on production silicon (i.e. no need for ES2 license).

Re: UHD SDI Example Design - Vivado Version

Hi @florentw

 

Thanks a lot! I could now successfully generate the example design for UHD SDI subsystem. I am actually working to build an optical SDI link using SFPs. I want to take up the base SDI example, port it for ZCU102 and modify it accordingly to achieve the intended functionality.

 

I will post the results once i progress.

 

Any suggestions would be of great help.  

 

Thanks and Regards.

Ajay Kumar G
