We tried and we used guides from many souces and we never got passed overlay loading errors in jupyter notebk.
I used precompiled sd for 7020 from ticktronaut, followed half baked tutorials from adam taylor, folwed thr pynq docs, trued peter Ogdens tutorial and still our booted pynq cant load the base overlay or even connect a machine learning overlay to our board.
Any suggestion ?

I would recommend posting this over at the Xilinx support forum as well.
Here is what I can offer.
The Ultra96 github for PYNQ read me is a nice working example of how this is done which can be somewhat extrapolated to any platform. https://github.com/Avnet/Ultra96-PYNQ
However please realize you cannot follow the example word for word, you must be keep in mind your PetaLinux expertise and Hardware design experience. From our experience most of the issues individuals have when porting PYNQ to another platform relates to setting up the hardware design and having a suitable base PetaLinux BSP to start with.
Okey, thank you both for the help.
I'll move it to the Xilinx support forum.
I though that since from the Microzed web page it says that the tech support has been moved here,
I could find some help right here.
If you have any further suggestion please let me know.
I need help about some issues with the MicroZed7020:
Integrate 7 to 12 sensors on IIC / SPI with possibility for minimum 512k/s 16bit data retrieval.
Data would be sampled at the same time and then processed on the microzed 7020
Operating system would be PYNQ 2.4+ / linux with full support for overlays and third party PYNQ libraries.
We have DSP algo's and machine learning models we want to implement and need on-board data display on web dashboard - PYNQ.
We have tried to implement PYNQ on the microzed 7020 with the IOCC carrier card.
The problems in integrating it include:
Very old incompatible Avnet support files ( MicroZed | Zedboard see documents down to the page on the right).
Tutorials and other information so old it's 2013!
PYNQ poor documentation on the boards overall requirements so unable to accurately spec a base overlay for the Microzed 7020 that can communicate with the IOCC.
We feel like the Microzed 7020 is an abandoned product as it is clear that there is no recent support updates from Avnet to make it usable with modern software versions.
We would use the Ultra96 but it has very little IO and our sensor requirements would not easily be met.
The overlays and the pmod compatibility is not in PYNQ for the Ultra96.
The original PYNQ board is a ZYNQ-7 series 7020 board
Our board is based on the same chip - Microzed 7020
Seems simple with the right support to install PYNQ on this board and use pmod connectors on the IOCC.
Can you help me or suggest something to resolve those problems ?
Thanks in advance.
I'll wait your feedback.
