I encountered exactly the same problem as you. I would appreciate if somebody could help us. I tried a similar connection using the Vivado Tools without sucess. See my post in http://www.zedboard.org/content/high-level-synthesis-tutorial-ug871-v-20132
I have had the same problem. I wrote a short report and posted here:
It implements similar ideas as in XAPP1170 but using Vivado.
I have tried "zynq-7000 all programmable SoC accelerator for floating point matrix multiplication using Vivado HLS"
I just followed the steps on the tutorial.
However, I don't see any result on the terminal.
it seems like there is infinite loop.
When I tried DMA tutorial, there was an issue from AXI interconnector (Slice and FIFO set up).
Is it same issue with AXI interconnect?
Does anyone solve this problem?
