Ulrazed board preset files in Vivado 2017.2

Hello,
 
I tried to follow these instructions:
https://forums.xilinx.com/t5/Xcell-Daily-Blog/Adam-Taylor-s-MicroZed-Chr...
in order to build a "hello world" example with ultrazed using Vivado 2017.2
 
In the step that the board preset is applied, in "Run Block Automation", although the preset option is checked, the block I/O remains the same as before running block automation.
 
I followed the exact same instructions using Vivado 2016.4 and everything run smoothly.
 
Is there any problem with the board preset files for Vivado 2017.2?
 
Cheers,
Panos

Hello Panod,

Hello Panod,

Do you see the UltraZed Board Definition files when you initially create your project? Are you using ES1 or Production Silicon?

Please download UltraZed-EG SOM and Carrier Cards -- Vivado 2017.2 Board Definition Files from the link below. In that file there are instruction on how to install the BDF file and then explore the BDF to make sure everything is correct. Based on your description above, I believe everything is operating correctly. The reason you are seeing difference in your block design when running block automation is due to different peripherals being enabled by default between the 2016.4 and 2017.2 BDF.

I just created a design in

I just created a design in 2016.4 and 2017.2. In 2016.4 there are two ports in the Zynq symbol after running the Block Automation that you don't see in the 2017.2 version. If this is what you are referring to, it is perfectly OK. I had made changes to the 2017.2 Board Definition Files to remove those unused ports. Continue with your 2017.2 tutorial and you will not see any issues with your Hello World exmaple design.

@npoureh
Thank you very much, for your tests and the explanation.
I run Adam's tutorial using Vivado 2017.2 and as you said everything went well.
