14.x - Zynq-7000 AP SoC: When creating a BOOT.bin file with a bitstream that does not have processing_system7, the system does not boot

Description

When using ISE 14.x tools, the bitstream used to generate the BOOT.bin file must include the processing_system7 module.

If not, the BOOT.bin image will not boot and FSBL will fail.

Solution

This is a known issue for ISE 14.x tools.

The following are possible work-arounds:
 
  1. Add a processing_system7 instance to your design.
  2. Add the NON_PS_INSTANTIATED_BITSTREAM flag to FSBL.h:
     

   #define NON_PS_INSTANTIATED_BITSTREAM

There is no plan to fix this in ISE.
