Base overlay project¶
The source files for the base overlay can be found in the PYNQ GitHub. The project can be rebuilt using the makefile/TCL available here:
The base design can be used as a starting point to create a new design.
Vivado board files¶
Vivado board files contain the configuration for a board that is required when creating a new project in Vivado.
Installing these files in Vivado, allows the board to be selected when creating a new project. This will configure the Zynq PS settings for the PYNQ-Z1.
To install the board files, extract, and copy the board files folder to:
<Xilinx installation directory>\Vivado\<version>\data\boards
If Vivado is open, it must be restart to load in the new project files before a new project can be created.
