Xilinx Zynq ZedBoard compatibility
« on: September 02, 2020, 09:27:31 PM »
We have a working design with the Xilinx ZedBoard Zynq-7000 ARM/FPGA SoC Development Board. The FPGA design (.bit file) was developed with Vivado and the firmware was designed with the Xilinx SDK. The .bit file and the .elf file was combined to make a BOOT.bin on the SDCARD.

We have your SoC Module mit Xilinx Zynq XC7Z020-2CLG484I mounted on the TE0701-06 carrier board. Are these 2 boards combined exactly compatible with the ZedBoard Zynq-7000. Meaning, should I be able to plug my SDCARD into the TE0701-06 carrier board memory card socket and everything should work as it did on the ZedBoard?

Which one? We have different one: https://shop.trenz-electronic.de/en/Products/Trenz-Electronic/TE07XX-Zynq-SoC/

When it's compatible with TE0701, than it must be one of them:

https://shop.trenz-electronic.de/en/Products/Trenz-Electronic/TE07XX-Zynq-SoC/TE0720-Zynq-SoC/

    TE0720-03-2IF
    TE0720-03-2IFA
    TE0720-03-2IFC3
    TE0720-03-62I12GA

Only ZedBoard is compatible with ZedBoard.

Zynq is an generic device, so every board has different periphery connected (therefore it's different PS configuration).

We offer Reference Design with board part files and basic PS setup.

I would suggest to start with this one, add your PL Design and PS changes, which are independed from HW to our project and generate the design.
