Q. AD-FMCOMMS2-EBZ with ZCU102 and vivado

Hello.

Below is the customer's test environment.

- AD-FMCOMMS2-EBZ

- XILINX ZCU102 EVB ver1.1 (MPSoC)

- Vivado 2018.2

- HDL reference

1. A customer says that ZCU102 EVB ver1.1 and vivado 2018.2 are not compatible. ZCU EVB ver1.0 is said to be compatible. Is it correct?

2. AD-FMCOMMS2-EBZ, ZCU102, HDL reference combination, which vivado version should the customer use?

    - Customers report that the AXI interface does not work properly when using Vivado 2020.1.

    - Customers say that the ZC702 works fine when used in vivado 2018.2 and 2020.1.

3. Is there a schedule for updating the HDL reference for the next version of Vivado 2019.1?

Because I don't know the FPGA, the expressions may not fit.

Please take it into account.

    Yes, since Xilinx hardcoded memory timing in the FSBL…

    Hello Leo,

    If they are uncomfortable using Vivado 2018.3 and are in a hurry, I would suggest using the master branch and building the project with 2019.1. Do they need Linux or No-OS ?

    During our current tests, we haven't seen issue regarding ZCU102/FMCOMMS2 interface, but we do have some video related issues on the ZCU102 before we can make the release. The issues may be more related to our new Linux image than on the project itself.

    We'll post a release candidate image as soon as it's table enough, but given that fixing bugs it's not deterministic, I cannot yet give you a more accurate date.

    Regards,

    Adrian
