PYNQ: PYTHON PRODUCTIVITY

Connecting Pynq-Z2 from JTAG

I have created by block design using zynq and I exported the bitstream and launched Vitis. I have changed the Jumpers to JTAG since I need to program the board. I need UART to see the communication. How do I tackle this issue? Should I boot from the SD Card instead?

Hi @srinivasan74,

Provided everything is configured properly, you can connect using a serial console. You can use PuTTY which is supported in both Windows and Linux. You need to identify the device that is associated to the board.

You don’t need to boot from SD, the steps below apply for your case.
