Reference Design is only usable with the specified Vivado/SDK/PetaLinux/SDx version. Do never use different Versions of Xilinx Software for the same Project.

Reference Design is available on:

Design Flow

Reference Design is available with and without prebuilt files. It's recommended to use TE prebuilt files for first lunch.

Trenz Electronic provides a tcl based built environment based on Xilinx Design Flow.

See also:

The Trenz Electronic FPGA Reference Designs are TCL-script based project. Command files for execution will be generated with "_create_win_setup.cmd" on Windows OS and "_create_linux_setup.sh" on Linux OS.

TE Scripts are only needed to generate the vivado project, all other additional steps are optional and can also executed by Xilinx Vivado/SDK GUI.  For currently Scripts limitations on Win and Linux OS see: Project Delivery Currently limitations of functionality


  1. _create_win_setup.cmd/_create_linux_setup.sh and follow instructions on shell:
  2. Press 0 and enter to start "Module Selection Guide"
  3. (optional Win OS) Generate Virtual Drive or use short directory  for the reference design (for example x:\<design name>)
  4. Create Project (follow instruction of the product selection guide), settings file will be configured automatically during this process
    1. (optional for manual changes) Select correct device and Xilinx install path on "design_basic_settings.cmd" and create Vivado project with "vivado_create_project_guimode.cmd"
      Note: Select correct one, see TE Board Part Files
  5. Create XSA and export to prebuilt folder
    1. Run on Vivado TCL: TE::hw_build_design -export_prebuilt
      Note: Script generate design and export files into \prebuilt\hardware\<short dir>. Use GUI is the same, except file export to prebuilt folder
  6. Generate Programming Files with Vitis
    1. Run on Vivado TCL: TE::sw_run_vitis -all
      Note: Scripts generate applications and bootable files, which are defined in "sw_lib\apps_list.csv"
    2. (alternative) Start SDK with Vivado GUI or start with TE Scripts on Vivado TCL: TE::sw_run_vitis
      Note:  TCL scripts generate also platform project, this must be done manuelly in case GUI is used. See Vitis 
      Projects contains 3 FSBL template: zynq_fsbl (FSBL modified for DDR Less application → use for Boot.bin), zynq_fsbl_app (FSBL modified for DDR Less application and with demo app included → create Boot with this FSBL and Bitstream only), zynq_fsbl_flash(FSBL modified for Flash programming →FSBL which must be selected separately to program Flash)

      TE0722  is without DDR, so special FSBL (sources on reference designs) is needed, see also: DDR less ZYNQ Design

Launch

Basic Information, see TE0722 Getting Started

Programming

Check Module and Carrier TRMs for proper HW configuration before you try any design.

Xilinx documentation for programming and debugging: Vivado/SDK/SDSoC-Xilinx Software Programming and Debugging

Get prebuilt boot binaries

  1. _create_win_setup.cmd/_create_linux_setup.sh and follow instructions on shell
  2. Press 0 and enter to start "Module Selection Guide"
    1. Select assembly version
    2. Validate selection
    3. Select Create and open delivery binary folder
      Note: Folder (<project foler>/_binaries_<Artikel Name>) with subfolder (boot_<app name>) for different applications will be generated

QSPI

Optional for Boot.bin on QSPI Flash

  1. Connect JTAG and power on carrier with module
  2. Open Vivado Project with "vivado_open_existing_project_guimode.cmd" or if not created, create with "vivado_create_project_guimode.cmd"
  3. Type on Vivado TCL Console: TE::pr_program_flash -swapp u-boot
    Note: To program with SDK/Vivado GUI, use special FSBL (zynqmp_fsbl_flash) on setup
              optional "TE::pr_program_flash -swapp zynq_fsbl_app" possible

SD

Xilinx Zynq devices in CLG225 package do not support SD Card boot directly from ROM bootloader. Use QSPI for primary boot and SD for secondary boot only. See also Xilinx AR#66846

JTAG

Not used on this Example.

Usage

  1. Prepare HW like described on section TE0722 Test Board#Programming
  2. Connect UART USB (most cases same as JTAG)
  3. Power On PCB
    Note: 1. Zynq Boot ROM loads FSBL from QSPI into OCM, 2. FSBL loads bitfile from QSPI, 3. FSBL starts application (included into the FSBL Code)

Baremetal App

Note: UART over J2 is used, this is only available, if PL part is configured with correct UART connection.

  1. Open Serial Console (e.g. putty)
    1. Speed: 115200
    2. COM Port: Win OS, see device manager, Linux OS see  dmesg |grep tty  (UART is *USB1)
  2. Output:
    1. Default output appears only 10 time. Reboot device: force ResN Pin to GND for short time, location see: TE0722 Getting Started


Vivado HW Manager

Open Vivado HW-Manager and add VIO signal to dashboard (*.ltx located on prebuilt folder)

  • Control:
    • Enable/Disable RGB LED Counter (default on)
    • Enable/Disable different colors (default all off)
