Hello engineers.

I have a Zedboard connected to FMCOMMS1. The Linux OS provided by ADI is working perfectly but I need some guide to perform a new task.

I have a looped algorithm developed on Simulink. I can generate VHDL code from it and I want to interface it into the ADI hardware. Here are my main questions :

 

1. I want to test now my looped algorithm on Zedboard with FMCOMMS1 using the Linux OS. I know that I may use the XPS software from ISE Design Suite in order to regenerate the bitstream and recreate the boot image. Is it correct ?

I looked at the source of the Zynq Linux tutorial : http://wiki.analog.com/resources/eval/user-guides/ad-fmcomms1-ebz/software/linux/zynq

At which

 

2. Is there a other way to test the algorithm with Linux OS directly from Simulink ?

I am also aware of the new ADI project based on libiio : http://wiki.analog.com/resources/tools-software/linux-software/libiio/clients/matlab_simulink

 

 

3. I have choose Zedboard because it's the recommended platform development by ADI to work with FmComms1. But I also have a ML605. Should I continue to work with Zedboard or using ML605 Microblaze and IP Core generation capabilities in order to use my VHDL code as a peripheral ?

 

Thank you for the support.

Regards.
