DC1532A-L (LTC2263-12) with MicroZed FMC Carrier Card


I'd like to connect the DC1532A-L Evaluation Board to the MicroZed Board via the FMC Carrier Card. Has anyone experience if they are compatible? If I read the schematics of the evaluation board right, it has a FMC HPC Connector, but only the LPC subset is connected. The FMC Carrier Card only has LPC.

    The DC1532 only uses pins on the LPC connector so it should be compatible with the LPC connector on the Microzed board. Let me know if you need any help. 

  • Hi Clarence,

    when trying to program the Microzed via JTAG using Xilinx SDK, while DC1532A-L is also connected to the FMC Carrier Card, I always get the error:

    "Could not find FPGA device on the board for connection 'Local'.

    Troubleshooting hints:
    1. Check whether board is connected to system properly.
    1. In case of zynq board, check whether Digilent/Xilinx cable switch settings are correct.
    1. If you are using Xilinx Platform Cable USB, ensure that status LED is green.
    Program FPGA failed"

    If I try to program the Microzed without DC1532A-L being plugged in I don't get any problems. I also tried programming the Microzed inside Vivado using the Hardware Manager, but the board won't get recognized by Vivado, when DC1532A-L is connected.

    Do you have any experience or idea what could cause this problem? Somehow I guess the card is interfering with the JTAG connection.

    I already asked the question at the zedboard.org forum, but they also don't know what's happening with this problem.


  • I solved this by shorting TDO and TDI at the FMC connector on the Carrier Card.
