• ## ZYBO with PlanAhead Tutorial

Because I desperately searched for something like that and found nothing, I just wrote a tutorial myself on how to start with the Xilinx PlanAhead workflow in ISE 14.7 when using the Digilent ZYBO board. Though I made this with the ZYBO in mind, the general workflow also applies to ZedBoard users and probably general Zynq boards as well.

It can be found at http://sunsided.github.io/zybo-tutorial/.

Basically the tutorial explains in about 120 pictures how to implement

LEDs <= Switches xor Buttons;


using the Xilinx tools. You can also find that nice picture of my fingers there, too.

If that ain’t something!

Edit:
Johann wrote a tutorial on using the ZYBO with Vivado on Linux. It can be found here.

1. Thanks so much for putting this tutorial together. It really helped me get going with the ZYBO.

2. Johann sagt:

This was great, thank you! Vivado was different enough that I wrote my own bit about doing pretty much the same thing — much shorter and dirtier than this one. It can be found here:

Thanks, this was great. I was having problems to getting started. I always have used pure verilog lenguaje to do everything (Including a DDR2 interface from scratch or a HDMI decoder/encoder). But I didn’t know how to comunicate the softcore with de programable logic. A tutorial for the AXI burst or DMA interface would be great.

Unfortunately I don’t have experience with either AXI burst transfers nor DMA.

Hello,

Do you know where can I find help to read from the PL using the AXI Lite?

I made a simple random number generator and I want to be able to read from the processsor.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thank you very much.
