This guide will show you how to setup your computer and RFSoC 4x2 board using PYNQ.
Included in the kit:
You can watch the getting started video guide or follow the instructions below. If you have any problems getting started, post a question to the PYNQ support forum.
Your board comes with a Micro SD card, pre-loaded with a PYNQ image. An updated PYNQ image may be available.
See the PYNQ documentation on writing an image to an SD card for more information.
Check the following steps to setup the board.
After you power-on the board, you will see the following sequence:
The power status LEDs are on the bottom right side of the board. After powering on all 10 power status LEDs will turn on.
You may see other LEDs turn on or flash occasionally during boot. E.g. the Ethernet LEDs will flash.
After about 40 seconds, you will see the green DONE and INIT LEDs near the top left of the board turn on. The DONE LED turning on indicates a bitstream has been downloaded to the programmable logic and is a good indication that the boot is progressing correctly.
A few seconds later, the 4 white user LEDs (LED0-LED3) on the bottom center of the board will flash briefly and remain on.
The OLED will display information about the network connection and IP address of the board.
You can now connect to the board.
On your computer, open a web browser. Chrome/Safari/Firefox are recommended for use with Jupyter Lab.
Browse to http://192.168.3.1/lab If you connected your board to your network, replace 192.168.3.1 with the IP address of your board which will be displayed on the OLED
The Jupyter Lab log-in screen will load.
You are now in the Jupyter Lab IDE and the PYNQ framework. Use the example notebooks included with PYNQ to start exploring the RFSoC 4x2.
You can find a list of accessories that you can use with your RFSoC 4x2 board.
Review the overlays page for details on available overlays that can be used with your board. Overlays are prepacked PYNQ designs that you can use with your board.
