Hi all,

I am trying to work on "Embedded Linux

This doc. says get design named as "ZedBoard Linux Hardware Design" from same link, and it is having support for "ISE 14.4" and not for "Vivado",
how to use the same ISE design in vivado or
there is seperate degin for Vivado?

My understnding is Vivado is replacement of ISE design suite.


Cna you please brief me the procedure , how I can change ISE Design suite into Vivado Design Suite(Any prefered Document whcih we can follow),  because lot of Design examples are not supporting Vivado, I am working on these designs, if I get any Document I wil work on it and post the same to all.


Thanks & Regards

Hi, the Vivado only supports Xilinx 7 series FPGA, if you have the chip or board from previous family like Spartan, Virtex 5, you can use Vivado for design. I assume you have downloaded the Vivado already (otherwise it is like what you did for ISE) and you need new license for Vivado Webpack. The Webpack has free license (like ISE Webpack). 

Regarding switching the design to Vivado, you can open your .v (verilog) or .vhd (vhdl) file in the notepad or word pad and copy and paste the code into the new project. 

I have created a getting started guide. You can take a look https://blog.digilentinc.com/index.php/getting-started-with-xilinx-vivado-and-the-nexys-4/
