Zynq-7000 AP SoC ZC706 Evaluation Kit - Interface Test Designs

Description

I am attempting to exercise the interfaces on the Zynq-7000 AP SoC ZC706 Evaluation Kit.

What tests can be run to ensure that the interfaces are working correctly?

Solution

Zynq-7000 AP Soc ZC706 Evaluation Kit Documentation and Example Designs referenced below can be found on the ZC706 Support page.

ZC706
Configuration Interfaces
Configuration Mode/VMode Pins ZC706 BIST (XTP242) Page 15 for QSPI settings; Page 42 for JTAG settings
Configuration PS-JTAG Interface (Xilinx Answer 46881) Also covers third-party debugger usage
Configuration PL-JTAG Interface (Xilinx Answer 46881) Also covers third-party debugger usage
Configuration PMBus Interface (Xilinx Answer 37561) Requires TI USB EVM Adapter; see (Xilinx Answer 54022)
Configuration Digilent JTAG Interface ZC706 BIST (XTP242) Page 9 uses the Digilent Interface
Configuration Xilinx Platform Cable USB Interface ZC706 BIST (XTP242) Page 9 uses the Digilent Interface; simply substitute Platform Cable USB and update JTAG config pins
Configuration Quad SPI Flash ZC706 BIST (XTP242) Page 18 has user boot from QSPI.  See XTP247 - ZC706 Restoring Flash Content PDF - for restoring QSPI factory contents
Configuration SD Card ZC706 BIST (XTP242) Page 101.  This creates a BOOT.bin.  Copy this to an SD Card, set correct mode pins settings, and cycle power
Board Feature Interfaces
Board XADC Interface 7 Series AMS TRD (UG960) Requires AMS101 card
Board FMC-LPC Connectors XM105 User Guide (UG537) Page 29.  User Guide for the XM105 Mezzanine Debug card.  This card has DS5, DS6, and DS7 which indicate good power to the board.  Debug strategies will vary depending on the specific mezzanine card being used. Can also use XTP091.

Board SD Card (General Purpose) Xilinx Wiki Linux Release For example: 14.4 - http://wiki.xilinx.com/zynq-release-14.4.  This can boot entirely from SD card
Board I2C Interface ZC706 BIST (XTP242) Page 22
Board 200 MHz differential clock none available Drives clock into PL fabric
Board 33.333 MHz PSCLK ZC706 BIST (XTP242) The PS uses this clock as the primary reference clock.  If BIST works as expected, PSCLK is working
