(Optional) Connect the USB cable to your PC/Laptop, and to the USB JTAG UART MicroUSB port on the board

Turning On the ZCU104¶
As indicated in step 6, slide the power switch to the ON position to turn on the board. A Red LED and some additional yellow board LEDs will come on to confirm that the board has power. After a few seconds, the red LED will change to Yellow. This indicates that the bitstream has been downloaded and the system is booting.
Once your board is setup, you need to connect to it to start using Jupyter notebook.
If available, you should connect your board to a network or router with Internet access. This will allow you to update your board and easily install new packages.
Connect to a Computer¶
You will need to have an Ethernet port available on your computer, and you will need to have permissions to configure your network interface. With a direct connection, you will be able to use PYNQ, but unless you can bridge the Ethernet connection to the board to an Internet connection on your computer, your board will not have Internet access. You will be unable to update or load new packages without Internet access.
Connect directly to a computer (Static IP):
Connect to a Network Router¶
If you connect to a router, or a network with a DHCP server, your board will automatically get an IP address. You must make sure you have permission to connect a device to your network, otherwise the board may not connect properly.
