The most Trenz Electronic FPGA Reference Designs are TCL-script based project.

The "normal" Vivado project will be generated in the subfolder "/vivado/" after executing scripts (YouTube: TE0720 Project Creation).

There are several options to create the Vivado project from the project delivery. These options are described in Vivado Projects - TE Reference Design.

Since 2018.3 special "Module Selection Guide" is included into "_create_win_setup.cmd" and "_create_linux_setup.sh"

  • Execute "_create_win_setup.cmd" or "_create_linux_setup.sh"
  • Select "Module Selection Guide" (press "0" and Enter)
  • Follow instructions

For manuell manual configuration or addition command files for execution will be generated with "_create_win_setup.cmd" on Windows OS and "_create_linux_setup.sh" on Linux OS. If you use our prepared batch files for project creation do the following steps:
