Hi,
I am working with HDL Coder. How can I deploy a previously generated bitfile to my ZC706 once I have generated the code using HDL Coder. For some reason it seems like I need to rebuild the bitstream in the HDL Coder Workflow in order to re-deploy the bitfile. Can you help with this?
For instance, I power cycle the Zynq board edit my ARM code and then want to redeploy the same bitfile to the Zynq chip.
Thanks,

If you know the location of your FPGA programming file, you can always use Vivado to program the FPGA. Also, there is a MATLAB utility function that can do this - run "help filProgramFPGA" in MATLAB to check it out.
Hope this helps, Tao

From the filProgramFPGA help,
filProgramFPGA('Xilinx Vivado', PROGRAMFILE,CHAINPOSITION)
programs Xilinx FPGA at JTAG chain position CHAINPOSITION using the
programming file PROGRAMFILE and Xilinx Vivado tool.
How to define the CHAINPOSITION value?
