Zynq ZC706 board Aurora 8B10B XC7Z045 XQ7Z045

Jump to solution

My design requires Aurora 8B10B (for serial bus to an older intfc.) and I would like to use the ZC706 eval bd, but the ZC706 does not appear to be supported in Vivado 2015.4 nor in Vivado 2018.3, and the 8B10B core does not appear to be supported for the Zynq device XC7Z045 (although doc PG046 implies LogiCore IP 8B10B will support Zynq).  Any examples and specific tools (how-to) for implemtation would be appreciated.  Is there a project template for this bd, ZC706, in Vivado? and can Aurora 8B10B be implemented in XC7Z045?

Appears Solved. Vivado help menu; Add Design Tools or Devices; Upgraded from Vivado HL WebPACK to Vivado HL Design Edition. Checked the Lic Mngr enable box and Driver install enable box. Updat continued and installed from existing files - no new downloads required. No internet connection required. No apparent License issues. Restarted PC and Vivado. Now all Zynq devices, including the military versions, show as supported selections as well as the ZC706 board (and more other bds) show as supported. Selected ZC706 bd for the project and saved. Success. Thx.

Hi @carlscott

 

2018.3 still support the ZC706 and Aurora 8b10b IP. Please check if the Zynq devices are installed in Vivado.Capture.JPG

 

Thanks
Simon

Thx - Status so far: Vivado 2018.3 license mngr shows Aurora 8b10b, ZC706 bd, and Zynq 7z045.
The Select Device menu shows no support for the board and device.
Xilinx UG973, page 38, figure 3-16 implies that I must install/upgrade from Vivado HL WebPACK to Vivado HL Design Edition. I'll try this; caveat that I have the correct licensing for the upgrade.
