FMCDAQ2-EBZ + iW-RainboW-G35M


I faced some issues running DAQ2 with G35M Dev Kit, I hope I can get support and solve these issues.

Setup Environment:

FPGA Package: xczu19eg-ffvc1760-1-i

Vivado/Vitis Version: 2020.1

Git Hub: Master (HDL & no-OS) - Cloned on 4 January 2022

First, I cloned (HDL and no-OS) projects for ZCU102 and compile them using Vivado and Vitis 2020.1 and I succeeded in that.

Then I did some changes in HDL and no-OS to be able to run the ZCU102 reference design with G35M Dev Kit. My changes are listed as follows.

HDL/no-OS Changes:

1. Change FPGA family from xczu9eg-2ffvb1156e to xczu19eg-ffvc1760-1-i

2. Configure PS to be compatible with G35M Dev Kit instead of zcu102 (such as DDR, Disable GPIO)

3. Un-Check (Place SYSREF in IOB) in axi_ad9144_jesd/tx and axi_ad9680_jesd/rx

- I did this because I got a timing issue and I couldn't solve it unless Un-Check (Place SYSREF in IOB). See timing.png below. Is this the right solution?

4. Change package pin in constrains file to be compatible with G35M Dev Kit instead of zcu102

5. Change iostandard in constrains file from LVDS to LVCMOS18 for these pins: rx_sysref_p/n and tx_sysref_p/n

- I did this because those pins are connected to HD bank. So LVDS is not an option, also there is no external termination on board.

- I solve this by configuring ad9523-1 to use LVCOMS18 instead of LVDS. See lvcoms18.png below. Is this the right solution?

lvcoms18.png (line 306 & 320)

Testing Result:

After doing the above changes, I succeeded in bit generation without timing issues and I could program the board from Vitis.

Also, I could see the output from DAC on the analyzer/oscilloscope and I could see the input to ADC on the iio-oscilloscope as well.

Until now, I had two issues I couldn't solve:

1. Currently I am using Option 3 (ADC 500; DAC 500 MSPS) because Option 1 doesn't work. 

The terminal output for option 1 is shown below:

For me, it seems everything is Ok.

So why I am still getting PN9 and PN23 mismatched? 

If the PN9 and PN23 are mismatched, does that mean I will receive not accurate data from ADC?

Should I worry about PN sequence mismatching? How could I solve it?

2. I couldn't run option 1 (ADC 1000; DAC 1000 MSPS). It hangs for some reason and it doesn't show any messages.

The terminal output for option 1 is shown below:

I did some debugging and I found it return Failure here:

I am assuming this happens because the speed grade is (-1). But the Option 2 (ADC 500; DAC 1000 MSPS) is working.

The terminal output for option 2 is shown below:

Please explain why this happened with Option 1 and did not happen with Option 2?  

Is there a way to solve this for Option 1 and can use 1000 MSPS for ADC and DAC?

I hope I could solve the above issue to continuously achieve my project goal.

My final project should have:

1. real input (ADC) and real output (DAC)

2. processing data inside the FPGA is complex (I/Q).

Any guidance to achieve my final project would be helpful.

  • Hello,

      If you want to use the first option (1000 MSPS for ADC and DAC) you need to modify the following files:

        1. no-OS/drivers/axi_core/jesd204/axi_adxcvr.c

            line 221: you have to add "return ret;"

           line 453: you have to add "return SUCCESS;"

           line 352: you have to set ".sys_clk_sel = 3,"

      After these changes you can use the sample rate for ADC and DAC at 1000 MSPS.


  • Hi Paul,

    This is great, now it works for 1000 MSPS for ADC and DAC.

    I understand from your changes that the ADC is configured to use QPLL instead of CPLL. Right?

    Did you find a solution for PN sequence mismatching?

  • I've changed the fix link with the final solution.

  • Dear Paual, 

    I did these changes in tpl ip manually from vivado but still I am getting mismatch error.

    Should I clone the master and configure it for iwave board again ? (FYI : My current project cloned on january)

  • Hello,

    I would recommend cloning the main branch again and checking again if the error occurs.



  • PN Mismatch error is gone if the project compiled with default "make" parameters which is good news, Thank you Paul.

    For my case I am using different parameters and the PN Mismatch still happen.

    Default Parameters:

    • ADC (L=4 and M=2)
    • DAC (L=4 and M=2) 

    My Parameters:

    • ADC (L=4 and M=4)
    • DAC (L=4 and M=2) 

    Please help me here.

  • In no-os, I didn't do any changes and I got pn mismatch error.

    Then I tried these changes:

    - change quick conf. from 0x88 to 0x91

    - do setup as shown in page 63 first row, but I choose decimation by 2 instead of 4

    The link is up, but pn mismatch still there.

  • Hello,

    Could you please send me the terminal output in this case?

    Thank you

  • Hello,

    I reproduced the setup and it seems I have the same error and I'm working to fix it.



  • Dear Paul,

    Is there any news ?


  • Hello,

    I didn't managed to find a solution for this problem, but I'm working on it. Sorry for the delay!
