Xilinx MicroBlaze port for KC705 board

Posted by logicanalyzer on January 28, 2016

When I follow the directions on http://www.freertos.org/RTOS-Xilinx-Microblaze-KC705.html to import the demo application project into the Xilinx SDK (2014.4), I get an error pop-up window that says, "The Hardware Project referenced by this BSP (BSP) was not found in this workspace. As a result, this BSP will not build properly. To fix this error, please import the associated hardware project or recreate a new BSP targeting an existing hardware platform."

Where do I find the required Hardware Project for this demo?

The hardware project is in the download - I just tried a fresh install of 8.2.3, and imported all three projects without getting any errors. Did you ensure to select the correct directory when importing the project, so you could see all three projects in the import window as shown in the image here, which is taken from the instructions on the page you referenced: http://www.freertos.org/importKC705projects.png

If so, then the only other thing I could suggest is perhaps you need to update your SDK version, as it is four versions behind the latest offering from Xilinx, and we try to keep the projects functioning with the latest tool offerings.

Thank you for the quick response. I do not get the error with 2015.4, and the import process completes successfully.

I was using 2014.4 because the RTOS-Xilinx-Microblaze-KC705 web page says, "This MicroBlaze demo was produced using version 2014.4 of Xilinx's Vivado Design Suite," and I figured I should start with that version of the SDK. Shows how wrong an assumption can be!

My experience suggests that the Microblaze KC705 project no longer works on SDK version 2014.4. You might want to update the web page on the FreeRTOS site.

Yes, definitely, thanks for the feedback. Putting dates, version numbers, or words like "new", on web pages eventually comes back to bite you.

I'm going through the demo steps as described on the FreeRTOS web page, and the screenshots don't match what I see with the 2015.4 SDK, presumably because they are from 2014.4.

Another reason to update the page on the FreeRTOS web site...
