If you have not already checked out the previous blogs do so now! Learning Vitis: 1 Setting up a Virtual Machine Learning Vitis: 2 How to Download and "install" a pre-built platform   Once you have completed those, you are in a position to use the platforms in the platform repository!   We are going to pick up right where the "Download and "install" a pre-built platform" blog left off.  We not have our platform in a repository and we can access it! So, what now? Well, sele ...
Make Terminal Easier to Use Upon completing the install of Ubuntu, terminal is setup with a default of 24 columns. As MOST paths and commands we typically work with in a Linux based Xilinx environment are rather long it can make sense to increase the columns from 80 to 120 (or more!). This not only allows you to actually see text easier, but it makes things more clear to understand.  With the new Vitis scripting, Avnet has added many new messages and colors to logs and terminal reporting.& ...

Hi all,   Welcome to a new series of blogs that I am putting together.  If there is enough interest, I can continue this, so if you have suggestions and I can work it in, I will try to work through some blogs to answer your questions!   For this blog, I wanted to point out that Avnet maintains instructions on what we recommend as a useful build environment for Xilinx tools. This has been maintained since the 2014.4 version of tools.  It has become one of our most popular do ...
This blog post is a long overdue continuation of the "Avnet HDL git HOWTO" blog post I wrote last year.  Like the Avnet HDL github repository of build scripts, IP, etc. for building the Vivado projects that are the hardware foundation for customers to use and customize, Avnet's PetaLinux github repository is also full of build scripts, bitbake recipes, etc. for creating BSPs that customers are able to use as the basis for their own Linux development on Avnet Zynq and Zynq UltraScale+ SOMs a ...
