I have just installed SDSoC 2018.2 to use it with the Zybo board. However the Zybo does not appear on the list of available devices.
Is it possible to add the Zybo and the Pynq to SDSoC?

Thank you for your answer @khareashish_trimble.
I'm sorry for the basic questions, as I'm new on this. But is revision platorm the same as SDSoC? I'm trying to use the Zybo and the Pynq boards in the SDx software, not on reVision Stack which I think is a different software.

@hongshu - For using any board with SDx development environment you would need to have a platform that is designed for that particular board. You can use a revision platform or a simple platform depending on your needs. A revision platform generally has camera interfaces and other useful input outputs. The revision platform would typically also have support for xfopencv library.
If you do not wish to use the revision platform, here is another SDSoC platform fir Zybo from digilent - https://github.com/Digilent/SDSoC-Zybo-Z7-20
If you are new to SDSoC, you can follow this tutorial to get started - https://github.com/Xilinx/SDSoC-Tutorials/tree/master/getting-started-tutorial

Using a Pynq board in SDx is a bit more complicated. People have been trying to create a platform for that as well. follow this thread for more - https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/SDSoC-Environment-and-reVISION/creating-SDSoC-platform-for-Pynq-Board/td-p/854314

Hongshu, any luck with this? I am curious as to whether you had to return to an older version of SDx. I have been unable to get the Digilent-provided platform files for Zybo to load in 2018.2. But I may have some other configuration issues.
