ZedBoard Tricks and Tips

Auto-loading a design using the sdcard. When jumpers MIO 4 and MIO 5 on the ZedBoard are shorted to 3v3, the board looks for a BOOT.BIN file in the top-level directory of the sdcard. The BOOT.BIN needs to contain the following three files, in this order:

  1. A First Stage Boot Loader (FSBL) executable that checks system configuration registers and programs the programmable logic with the appropriate bitfile.


General Software Help

Remote Linux access. Follow

  1. Download and install NX Client.

Convey machine is for testing you projects on the actual hardware only. However, 90% of the time you should be using any of the machines listed below for development. Also, standard remotely accessible ISU Linux machines should be set up for doing development for the Convey system. You can find a list of those machines here: ISU Remote Access Servers
