Utilizing git, bash, and TCL (Tool Chain Language) in a Linux Environment and the Avnet Ultra96-V2 Single Board Computer
Join Tom Curran, an engineer with Avnet for an introduction to PetaLinux and how to get setup using Linux on an Ultra96-V2 board. PetaLinux provides a complete, reference Linux distribution that has been integrated and tested for Xilinx devices. All PetaLinux Board Support Packages (BSP) include pre-configured boot loaders, system images and bitstream.
Avnet maintains dozens of git repositories, and many of them are devoted to Xilinx and Linux development. Using existing TCL (Vivado) and bash (Linux) scripts, this course will examine how a beginner can experiment with using these repositories for building a known-good hardware platform and Linux OS image using the Xilinx Vivado and PetaLinux tools targeting the Avnet Ultra96-V2 board. The course will then direct the user to ways they can customize the OS image for their own needs.
What You Will Learn In This Webinar:
- Understand what PetaLinux is and how to use it
- Learn how to set up Ultra96-V2 to boot and use Linux
- Explore the best avenues to get started with git, PetaLinux, and Ultra96-V2
The Ultra96-V2 updates and refreshes the Ultra96 product that was released in 2018. Like Ultra96, the Ultra96-V2 is an Arm-based, Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ ™ MPSoC single board computer based on the Linaro 96Boards Consumer Edition (CE) specification. Ultra96-V2 is available in more countries around the world as it has been designed with a certified radio module from Microchip. Additionally, Ultra96-V2 is available in both commercial and industrial temperature grade options. Additional power control and monitoring is possible with the included Infineon Pmics.
