Model-Based Design using Simulink, ZedBoard and FMCOMMS2

Good afternoon everyone,

I am working on a project to connect the Zedboard and FMCOMMS2 using the HDL workflow advisor.


What I want to do is to have the Zynq FPGA (PL, not the processor) generate samples of a sine wave and send these to the RF for transmission FMCOMMS2, and to have this system operating stand-alone, without any further connection to the PC running Simulink.


I would also like to know if it's possible to save the generated bitstream into a bootable image, so that I whenever I turn the board on, I get the desired functionality. I have followed the instructions in the PicoZed SDR SpeedWay 2015 Training but it doesn' work. 

I have attached a Word document with more details about how I have my project set up; also, the project folder with all the files. I'd be grateful if you could take a look at it and see if I'm doing everything correctly.
Word document: Dropbox - ZedBoard and FMCOMMS2.docx 
Project files: Dropbox - SineWave2.rar 

Thanks for your help,


PD. This is a reference model. In the future, I will apply the same methodology for complex designs in my research.
