I no longer have to look into figuring out how to code up or wire up the SZG-DUALSFP daughter board to the Digilent Genesys Zynq UltraScale MPSoC+ board.
Why? Because I have a really old board that cost only $99 dollars that gives me direct access to the pins of an old 10/100 MBit PHY! That’s the Arty Artix-35T mini board!
Anyway… I found a corresponding NI “no longer national instruments” board that targets the same family of FPGAs so I can get started.
What that means is:
- Create a LabVIEW FPGA project that targets the CompactRIO 9053 board
- Use the LabVIEW FPGA IP Export the Netlist utility to get a design checkpoint
- Import that checkpoint in to my Arty project
- Generate an Arty Bitstream
- Load it to the FPGA
- Enjoy my FIX parsing code on this board with full ethernet connectivity.
- List of NI devices and the corresponding Xilinx FPGA that it uses:
- Arty A7-35T FPGA Development Board for Makers and Hobbyists
However, the Genesys Board will still remain in my consciousness and will be a secondary hobbyist project that I will look into and play with whenever I am tired of the Arty board…
