Build Flow Tutorials


PMU Firmware


The pmu_fw application is a bare-metal application that executes on the PMU MicroBlaze. It is loaded by the CSU early on in the boot process before the FSBL executes. The application's primary responsibility is to handle platform management.

  • Create a new XSDK workspace.
    % cd $TRD_HOME/pmu/pmu_fw
    % xsdk -workspace . &
  • Click 'Import Project' from the welcome screen, browse to the current working directory and make sure the pmu_fw, pmu_fw_bsp, and zcu102_base_trd_hw_platform projects are selected. Click Finish.

  • Right-click the pmu_fw project and select 'Build Project'.
  • Copy the generated pmu_fw executable into the PetaLinux BSP.
    cp $TRD_HOME/pmu/pmu_fw/pmu_fw/Debug/pmu_fw.elf $TRD_HOME/apu/petalinux_bsp/images/linux

Petalinux BSP


This tutorial shows how to build the Linux image and boot image using the PetaLinux build tool.

  • Configure the PetaLinux project.
    % cd $TRD_HOME/apu/petalinux_bsp
    % petalinux-config --get-hw-description=./hw-description --oldconfig
  • Select the device-tree matching design module 5 and build all Linux image components
    % cd subsystems/linux/configs/device-tree
    % cp system-dm1.dts system-top.dts
    % petalinux-build
    % cd -
  • Create a boot image.
    % cd images/linux
    % petalinux-package --boot --bif=dm1.bif --force
  • Copy the generated boot image and Linux image to the dm1 SD card directory.
    % mkdir -p $TRD_HOME/images/dm1
    % cp BOOT.BIN image.ub $TRD_HOME/images/dm1



Run Flow Tutorial


  • See here for board setup instructions.
  • Copy all the files from the $TRD_HOME/images/dm1 SD card directory to a FAT formatted SD card.
  • Power on the board to boot the images; make sure all power rail LEDs are lit green.
  • The user can now see the linux-boot on the serial console:

  • Upon completion of the linux-boot, use the below login and password to log into the framebuffer or serial console:
    root@Xilinx-ZCU102-2016_3 login: root
    password: root
  • The SD card file system is mounted at /media/card
