RFSoC 4x2 Ethernet

I am using the RFSoC 4x2 board with PYNQ v3.0.0, and am having trouble setting up the board to use Ethernet. I am able to connect to the board and run the spectrum analyzer jupyter notebook example when using the micro SD port. However, I would like to also test out the spectrum analyzer using Ethernet. With an ethernet cable connected between the RFSoC 4x2 and my PC, I am getting the message on the LCD screen “No IP Detected”. I was wondering if there are any other setup steps I need to do in order to get the Ethernet connection to work with Jupyter Notebook, or if this could maybe point to a hardware error with the Ethernet port?

Thank you

Hi @maurice,

You need to setup a static IP address on your computer, which has to be in the same subnetwork as the RFSoC 4x2. Alternatively, you can connect the board to your router, and the board should get a dynamic IP.

Please, check the documentation to setup a static IP: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) — Python productivity for Zynq (Pynq)
