  1. Hello, I am currently working on a project using the Zedboard and some Pmods from Digilent. As of now, I have booted Ubuntu 16.04 onto the ARM core using the Petalinux tools through an SD card. I have also been looking into the GPS pmod and got the bare-metal example to work from programming the FGPA. Through my personal computer (Ubuntu 18.04), I have been able to interface with the Ubuntu 16.04 on the ARM and the GPS pmod. However, I am a little confused as to how the GPS pmod in the PL communicates with the Ubuntu on the ARM. I would really appreciate some insight on the last leg of this triangle of communication. For the bare-metal exercise, I used the IP blocks provided in the vivado-library. I noticed that there were a few files under the driver folder that were related to the software side, but I'm unsure how to move forward. When I rebuilt the Petalinux package with the hdf that included my GPS pmod, the module did not show up on Ubuntu. Do I need to create the hardware driver separate from the vivado-library files? If yes, is that using the petalinux tools or SDK or something different? I have already looked into most of the forum posts and Xilinx documentation provided for the Zedboard, pmods, and petalinux, but did not find an explicit explanation. Thank you in advance!
  2. Hi, I have a project that uses Arty Z7-10 with pmodgps to receive the NMEA sentences every few seconds (I am using the GPS_getSentence function directly, rather than the sample code on github). The problem I am facing is whenever I program Arty via JTAG with a USB cable, my pmodgps is working correctly, but If I program the QSPI flash memory and use FSBL to boot it up, it seems to stop working. I have other pmods that are working fine in both cases, and only gps is not working as I am expecting. This seems like a weird bug to me. Does anybody have any idea what could be wrong? Thanks, Mahdi
  3. Hello all, I have connected PmodGps to JA connector of zedboard. I have downloaded the pmod example code(Microblaze) and did a little modification for Zynq devices. The code is listed below. For some reasons the code does not seem to be working. (The build is finished but there is blank terminal. Its not going inside that while loop. Probably because GPS.Ping does not get any data). And there is a minor warning in one of the files of BSP (bsp -> ps7_coretexa9_0 -> libsrc -> PmodGps_v1_1 - > src - PmodGPSselftest.c). I have attached the screenshots for better understanding. Please help me with this. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- /************ Include Files ************/ #include "PmodGPS.h" #include "xil_cache.h" #include "xparameters.h" #include "xil_printf.h" /************ Macro Definitions ************/ #ifdef XPAR_CPU_CORTEXA9_0_CPU_CLK_FREQ_HZ #define PERIPHERAL_CLK 100000000 // FCLK0 frequency is not in xparameters.h for some reason #else #define PERIPHERAL_CLK XPAR_CPU_M_AXI_DP_FREQ_HZ #endif /************ Function Prototypes ************/ void DemoInitialize(); void DemoRun(); /************ Global Variables ************/ PmodGPS GPS; /************ Function Definitions ************/ int main(void) { DemoInitialize(); DemoRun(); return 0; } void DemoInitialize() { GPS_begin(&GPS, XPAR_PMODGPS_0_AXI_LITE_GPIO_BASEADDR , XPAR_PMODGPS_0_AXI_LITE_UART_BASEADDR, XPAR_CPU_CORTEXA9_0_CPU_CLK_FREQ_HZ); GPS_setUpdateRate(&GPS, 1000); } void DemoRun() { while (1) { if ( { GPS_formatSentence(&GPS); if (GPS_isFixed(&GPS)) { xil_printf("Latitude: %s\n\r", GPS_getLatitude(&GPS)); xil_printf("Longitude: %s\n\r", GPS_getLongitude(&GPS)); xil_printf("Altitude: %s\n\r", GPS_getAltitudeString(&GPS)); xil_printf("Number of Satellites: %d\n\n\r", GPS_getNumSats(&GPS)); } else { xil_printf("Number of Satellites: %d\n\r", GPS_getNumSats(&GPS)); } = FALSE; } } } -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4. Hello, I am using Arty board to collect GPS data every second and prints it out to terminal. To do this, I modified PmodGPS example code on github which is attached (I wrote my code in C++, rather than the original code which was in C). I wanted to completely disable interrupts and poll data every second by myself, so I removed the interrupt part of the code, but apparently PmodGPS is not working without interrupts. Even though the GPS is getting a lock, I do not see any information printed out in terminal which means never goes to 1. Am I doing something wrong or the GPS is not actually working without interrupts? Any help is appreciated. Best, Mahdi
