How to test UART in Xilinx 7series ZC702 board without using board supported files.

I'm using ZC-702 board, in that I tested UART with using board supported files i.e, while creating project I selected board instead of choosing perticular part. Then after I successfully tested UART with creating Zynq processor ip in the block diagram and choosing uart1 by tik mark on it.There after I exported hardware and created new application with "hello world" templeted with in SDK. I saw "hello world"  on serial port.

But instead of using board supported files, I want to create same above by giving pin configuration file too. Please suggest me an idea for the same above.


Thank you.

Hi subani,

You can create your Vivado project starting from the Device, instead of the Board, and when creating the Block Design select Custom for the interfaces (Clock, Reset, UART, etc).

After creating the wrapper, just declare those pins in your Constraints file.

There are lots of documents and Tutorials, let us know if you need more help.
