PYNQ: PYTHON PRODUCTIVITY FOR ZYNQ

Guidance on using VDMA interrupt

Hi,

I am working on a ISP design (Zynq Ultrascale+ SoC) .
I have multiple VDMA in my design in PL and I have connected their interrupt to Zynq PS
pl_ps_irq port. I am getting errors.

I am new to PYNQ and hope someone from the community can guide me on how to handle VDMA interrupts in PYNQ

Thanks

It’s not clear from your message what kind of errors you’re getting, from either Vivado synthesis, implementation, or IPI validation.
As a guide, you’d add those ports to the block design individually (Create interface port in IPI) and tag them as interrupt type (xilinx.com:signal:interrupt_rtl). Then inside the block design, you’d concatenate them using xil_concat IP and the output goes to the Zynq PS pl_ps_irq port.

Thanks,

Hi,
Thanks for your reply. I am not facing any issue with generating bit file generation.
It is when i start using pynq framework and accessing vdma, i get following error
