Xilinx Development Tools#XilinxSoftware-BasicUserGuides

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 for minimum setup
  3. (optional Win OS) Generate Virtual Drive or use short directory  for the reference design (for example x:\<design name>)
  4. Create Project
    1. 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 HDF 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 MCS Firmware (optional):
    1. Create SDK Project with TE Scripts on Vivado TCL: TE::sw_run_sdk
    2. Create "SCU" application
      Note: Select MCS Microblaze and SCU Application
    3. Select Release Built
    4. Regenerate App
  7. (optional) Copy "\\workspace\sdk\scu\Release\scu.elf" into  "\firmware\microblaze_mcs_0\"
  8. Regenerate Vivado Project or Update Bitfile only and "scu.elf"
  9. Copy MCS file with Bitfile into prebuilt folder
    1. Create SDK Project with TE Scripts on Vivado TCL: TE::sw_run_hsi

QSPI

  1. Connect JTAG and power on PCB
  2. (if not done) Select correct device and Xilinx install path on "design_basic_settings.cmd" and create Vivado project with "vivado_create_project_guimode.cmd" or open with "vivado_open_project_guimode.cmd", if generated.
  3. Type on Vivado Console: TE::pr_program_flash_mcsfile -swapp
    Note: Alternative use SDK or setup Flash on Vivado manually
  4. Reboot (if not done automatically)
