ZC706 Supported SD Cards

Hi,

I have a ZC706 board, and I want to upgrade the SD card. I was planning on getting a 128GB, U3 speed  SD card, but I want to be sure that the ZC706 will support cards of this size/speed. I found one post in the forums that says UHS modes are not supported, but the cards might still work (http://forums.xilinx.com/xlnx/board/crawl_message?board.id=zaps&message.id=2918). I couldn't find any info on supported SD card capacities.

 

Has anyone used a 128GB SD card in the ZC706?

Is there a list of supported/tested SD cards for the ZC706 (or any other ZYNQ evaluation boards)?

 

Thanks

ZC706 will support SD/SDIO  cards . For details refer http://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/58420.html

 

I believe 128GB SD card also supposed to be work with ZC706 porvided if it designed as per sd card interface standard.

 

The ZC706 Getting Started Guide and User Guide have a clear step-by-step guide on how to program the SD card in a two step process. This enables the customer to download the latest TRD content from the ZC706 website: http://www.xilinx.com/content/xilinx/en/products/boards-and-kits/ek-z7-zc706-g.html

Has anyone found the answer to this question? I've seen different responses to related pages/questions. e.g. https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Embedded-Processor-System-Design/Booting-Zynq-from-a-64GB-SD-Card/td-p/555049 https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/50991.html

Hello @xilinxeng,

 

Yes, there are no size limitation for SD card as per answer record.

but you should be careful for the size of the bit-stream supported by device.

 

Please look for the table 21-2 for the bitstream length supported by the Zynq device under UG585 and UG470 for the equivalent PL length.

 

Thank you.
