Zynq FPGA board not working with System Generator

Link to this post 17 Jan 14

I Purchased Zynq FPGA board from Pantech Prolab. I am able to Program Zynq FPGA through Impact tool but can't Program it with System generator hardware co-simulation tool.

Steps I followed.
create QPSK modulation in matlab with xilinx blockset and through system generator hardware cosimulation option i created qpsk block set and try to programm it to zynq board. it display following error.

Could not find a ARM device on the board. Please check if the target is in:

1. Split JTAG mode - No operations are possible with ARM DAP

2. Non Jtag bootmode - Bootrom may need time to enable DAP. Please try again

Error occurred during "Simulation Initialization".

Hello Raj

Can you confirm if you have followed all the steps as per “Supporting New Boards through JTAG Hardware Co-Simulation” of UG640
If yes, use the bit file generated from hardware cosim and program FPGA using impact and re-run the simulation and check how it goes.


Generate the hardware co-simulation block and make connections

2. Use impact to configure FPGA . Use the bit file from bit file from the location

3. After successful of FPGA configuration. Checks skip device configuration option. Run the co-simulation

4. You can observe the correct output. You can see here simulation and co-simulation results are matching

Hope this helps.

Hi shahul,
Thanks for the prompt reply. finally i programmed Zynq FPGA successfully in System generator.
