• ## 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.

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.
