  1. Hi @jpeyron, It has been one day, but... no one is coming to tackle this problem. hirayaku
  2. Hey @D@n, I tried new configurations, but still it doesn't work. My memory configurations are in the attachments, the same as in the preset.xml file. Frequency is set to 525MHz. The instruction data is still wrong: same as the first post. hirayaku
  3. @jpeyron, Still, no luck. I tried but nothing happens, and data in the memory is still wrong. It's impossible that the project folder position has anything to do with the downloaded program data, after all. I have some clues, however. I tried to lower the frequency of memory: from 533Hz, which is claimed to be supported by Digilent, to 200Hz. What about now? Most data are right, including the first and second instruction at 0x00100000. However, there are still a few wrong instructions, so that I still cannot execute the program completely. No "hello world", for sure. DDR frequency: : Instructions at 0x00100000 (they are right; compare them to my previous posts) Some instructions are wrong, e.g. 0x00100064: Therefore, I'm almost sure it has something to do with the memory controller. If you know the answer, please directly tell me. Don't tell me about the irrelevant information (e.g. tcf. tcf will mess program data up? Are you kidding me?), because I've spent too much time on this possibly malfunctional board. If you do not know the answer, I request you to ask other Digilent employees. Or I have no choice but to request refund.
  4. @jpeyron, Thank you for your demo. But the problem remains unsettled. All the settings, including SDK settings, USB drivers and jumpers, are exactly the same as what you post. But my zybo just **doesn't work.** Like what I posted first, I can program FPGA with the bitstream file, after that DONE led would turn on; I can download the program onto the board, but when it comes to executing the program, everything is wrong. This is the system debugger debugging window in SDK. I set the Debug configuration to be "Stop at program entry" so zybo wouldn't execute a single instruction until I continue. The first instruction at program entry is WRONG: it should jump to 0x0010012c (i.e. _prestart), but it jumps to 0x0098012c. It's because the instruction data at 0x00100000 has several bits flipped, as shown in my first post. BTW, the second instruction is also wrong. I think that's why I cannot execute hello_world normally: I cannot even enter main function because the data in the memory are all messed up. I don't know what causes that, but my best guess is that it has something to do with the memory controller, that is, I doubt the memory controller or DRAM in my board is broken. Not totally broken, since you can see that 3rd to 8th instructions are right. But the instruction at 0x00100020 is wrong again. Key point: the data are only **partially**(not totally) wrong. I am wondering what causes that and how to fix that. Your board probably cannot reproduce this because I think it's highly possible to be board-specific.
  5. Hi @jpeyron! Since I'm only testing the board, the block design and software are super simple. I'm using Vivado 2016.04 webpack on Windows 10. Block design The code is as in the example "hello_world" project. I only pasted the main function here. #include <stdio.h> #include "platform.h" #include "xil_printf.h" int main() { init_platform(); print("Hello World\n\r"); cleanup_platform(); return 0; } SDK logs after I selected "System Debugger using xxx.elf on local": 14:42:35 INFO : Disconnected from the channel tcfchan#1. 14:42:36 INFO : 'targets -set -filter {jtag_cable_name =~ "Digilent Zybo 210279778233A" && level==0} -index 1' command is executed. 14:42:36 INFO : 'fpga -state' command is executed. 14:42:36 INFO : Connected to target on host '' and port '3121'. 14:42:37 INFO : Jtag cable 'Digilent Zybo 210279778233A' is selected. 14:42:37 INFO : 'jtag frequency' command is executed. 14:42:37 INFO : Sourcing of 'C:/Xilinx/Zybo/project_2/project_2.sdk/design_1_wrapper_hw_platform_0/ps7_init.tcl' is done. 14:42:37 INFO : Context for 'APU' is selected. 14:42:39 INFO : Hardware design information is loaded from 'C:/Xilinx/Zybo/project_2/project_2.sdk/design_1_wrapper_hw_platform_0/system.hdf'. 14:42:39 INFO : Context for 'APU' is selected. 14:42:39 INFO : 'stop' command is executed. 14:42:40 INFO : 'ps7_init' command is executed. 14:42:40 INFO : 'ps7_post_config' command is executed. 14:42:40 INFO : Context for processor 'ps7_cortexa9_0' is selected. 14:42:41 INFO : Processor reset is completed for 'ps7_cortexa9_0'. 14:42:41 INFO : Context for processor 'ps7_cortexa9_0' is selected. 14:42:41 INFO : The application 'C:/Xilinx/Zybo/project_2/project_2.sdk/hello_world/Debug/hello_world.elf' is downloaded to processor 'ps7_cortexa9_0'. 14:42:41 INFO : ----------------XSDB Script---------------- connect -url tcp: source C:/Xilinx/Zybo/project_2/project_2.sdk/design_1_wrapper_hw_platform_0/ps7_init.tcl targets -set -nocase -filter {name =~"APU*" && jtag_cable_name =~ "Digilent Zybo 210279778233A"} -index 0 loadhw C:/Xilinx/Zybo/project_2/project_2.sdk/design_1_wrapper_hw_platform_0/system.hdf targets -set -nocase -filter {name =~"APU*" && jtag_cable_name =~ "Digilent Zybo 210279778233A"} -index 0 stop ps7_init ps7_post_config targets -set -nocase -filter {name =~ "ARM*#0" && jtag_cable_name =~ "Digilent Zybo 210279778233A"} -index 0 rst -processor targets -set -nocase -filter {name =~ "ARM*#0" && jtag_cable_name =~ "Digilent Zybo 210279778233A"} -index 0 dow C:/Xilinx/Zybo/project_2/project_2.sdk/hello_world/Debug/hello_world.elf ----------------End of Script---------------- 14:42:41 INFO : Memory regions updated for context APU 14:42:41 INFO : Context for processor 'ps7_cortexa9_0' is selected. 14:42:41 INFO : 'con' command is executed. 14:42:41 INFO : ----------------XSDB Script (After Launch)---------------- targets -set -nocase -filter {name =~ "ARM*#0" && jtag_cable_name =~ "Digilent Zybo 210279778233A"} -index 0 con ----------------End of Script---------------- 14:42:41 INFO : Launch script is exported to file 'C:\Xilinx\Zybo\project_2\project_2.sdk\.sdk\launch_scripts\xilinx_c-c++_application_(system_debugger)\system_debugger_using_debug_hello_world.elf_on_local.tcl'
  6. Hi Alex, could you please have a look at my post https://forum.digilentinc.com/topic/3602-zybo-downloaded-program-data-is-wrong/ ? I've been stuck at the problem for 2 days and cannot find a workaround. Thanks!

  7. Hi guys, I bought a zybo board and did a simple hello world project to test the functionality, but it didn't work. Here's what I've done: After exporting hardware and creating sdk projects, I downloaded the bitstream & program into zybo as usual. But the board wouldn't run the program normally(It doesn't terminate and doesn't print helloworld). So I debug the board using xsdb, step by step, and find out that disassembly result is not the same as elf file displayed in SDK. xsd shows that data at 0x100000 is 0xea020049; however, in the sdk, the data should be 0xea000049, as shown in the second picture. If I keep on stpi, since it'll go to the wrong place, CPU will finally goto infinite loop. xsdb% connect tcfchan#0 xsdb% targets 1 APU 2 ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore #0 (Running) 3 ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore #1 (Running) 4 xc7z010 xsdb% fpga -f "design_1_wrapper_hw_platform_0/design_1_wrapper.bit" 100% 1MB 1.8MB/s 00:01 xsdb% targets 2 xsdb% source "design_1_wrapper_hw_platform_0/ps7_init.tcl" xsdb% rst; ps7_init; ps7_post_config; Info: ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore #0 (target 2) Stopped at 0xffffff28 (Suspended) Info: ARM Cortex-A9 MPCore #1 (target 3) Stopped at 0xffffff34 (Suspended) xsdb% dow "hello_world/Debug/hello_world.elf" Downloading Program -- C:/Xilinx/Zybo/project_2/project_2.sdk/hello_world/Debug/hello_world.elf section, .text: 0x00100000 - 0x001016eb section, .init: 0x001016ec - 0x00101703 section, .fini: 0x00101704 - 0x0010171b section, .rodata: 0x0010171c - 0x00101733 section, .data: 0x00101738 - 0x00101bab section, .eh_frame: 0x00101bac - 0x00101baf section, .mmu_tbl: 0x00104000 - 0x00107fff section, .init_array: 0x00108000 - 0x00108003 section, .fini_array: 0x00108004 - 0x00108007 section, .bss: 0x00108008 - 0x0010802f section, .heap: 0x00108030 - 0x0010a02f section, .stack: 0x0010a030 - 0x0010d82f 100% 0MB 0.4MB/s 00:00 Setting PC to Program Start Address 0x00100000 Successfully downloaded C:/Xilinx/Zybo/project_2/project_2.sdk/hello_world/Debug/hello_world.elf xsdb% mrd 0x100000 16 100000: EA020049 100004: EA040025 100008: EA00002B 10000C: EA00003B 100010: EA000032 100014: E320F000 100018: EA000000 10001C: EA00000F 100020: F92DD91F 100024: ED3F1FBB 100028: ED6D0B20 10002C: EEF11A10 100030: 00001004 100034: 00001A10 100038: FFFF1004 10003C: EFF1019E elf file contents: Disassembly of section .text: 00100000 <_vector_table>: 100000: ea000049 b 10012c <_boot> 100004: ea000025 b 1000a0 <Undefined> 100008: ea00002b b 1000bc <SVCHandler> 10000c: ea00003b b 100100 <PrefetchAbortHandler> 100010: ea000032 b 1000e0 <DataAbortHandler> 100014: e320f000 nop {0} 100018: ea000000 b 100020 <IRQHandler> 10001c: ea00000f b 100060 <FIQHandler> 00100020 <IRQHandler>: 100020: e92d500f push {r0, r1, r2, r3, ip, lr} 100024: ed2d0b10 vpush {d0-d7} 100028: ed6d0b20 vpush {d16-d31} 10002c: eef11a10 vmrs r1, fpscr 100030: e52d1004 push {r1} ; (str r1, [sp, #-4]!) 100034: eef81a10 vmrs r1, fpexc 100038: e52d1004 push {r1} ; (str r1, [sp, #-4]!) 10003c: eb00019e bl 1006bc <IRQInterrupt> So, the problem is, WHY is the DRAM data partially wrong??? I almost doubt DRAM works normally, but I just bought the board a week ago lol.
