Board-Specific Setup Information


For setting up the boards, you do not need an Ethernet cable or an SD card.

XilinxZynq UltraScale++ MPSoC ZCU102 FPGA Development Board

Set up the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC ZCU102 evaluation kit as shown in the figure below:

To setup the board:

  1. Plug in the power cord. If using JTAG connect the FPGA board to the host computer using a JTAG cable. If using Ethernet connect the FPGA board to the host computer using an Ethernet cable.

  2. Configure SW6 switch which is shown in the image below:

    Use the configuration table below to configure the switch settings:

    Boot ModeMode Pins [3:0]SW6 Switch Position [3:0]
    JTAG0, 0, 0, 0on, on, on, on
    QSPI320, 0, 1, 0 on, on, off, on
    SD1, 1, 1, 0off, off, off, on

    The SW6 default position is QSPI32. For the SW6 DIP switch moving the switch towards the ON label is a 0.
