it should be possible to use the AD9117 evaluation board with a Xilinx Zynq7000 eval board. My question is, if it is possible to just connect the DAC board to the Xilinx board and control the DAC from the FPGA side (SPI control and LVCMOS interface)? I've seen a documentation for the Virtex-6 ML605 board, where a USB connection is also required to flash new software onto the PIC. Is this required or can I just skip that? If it is required, can I just use the same software which is provided for the Virtex-6 board? Is it then possible to control and use the DAC from the FPGA, if the PIC runs the correct software?
Thank you for your time
