• ## 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.

• ## Digilent ZYBO (Zynq-7010)

The ZYBO is an evaluation board for the Xilinx Zynq-7010 All-Programmable SoC made by Digilent. I got mine from Trenz Electronic at a reduced price for academic use.

I chose it over the ZedBoard (which I already have some experience with) because of the reduced size and since I don’t need the high-density I/O jack. It turns out though that the board is very small, yet quite heavy.

One thing to keep in mind though is that despite the rather large number of PMOD connectors, not all of them might be actually useful for a given task. The one on the left is connected to the Cortex processor, the right one is mixed analog/digital, and the three lower right ones are differential, leaving exactly the one on the lower left as a logic-dedicated PMOD for the FPGA (i.e. a single ended one that is connected directly to the FPGA, apart from the XADC one, of course).

I originally intended the board to be used to experiment with the OV7670 camera, but that might turn out to be a problem because of the PMODs. So: Caveat emptor.
