MYiR Z-Turn Board

Posted by raymadigan on May 27, 2016

I have ruined the usb connector of the microZed board and can't find another one for at least 60 days. I need to continue to make some progress but I am stuck without the ability to write data to the serial port.

I have a MYiR Tech Z-Turn board, a Xilinx zynq board with different accessories. I really only need to be able to use the processors and logic the same as on the microZed. I don't have much experience on the kernel at this time, and I'm just wondering if there is a sense for how difficult this task would be.

I am not familiar with that board, so cannot say how easy or otherwise the board is to program and debug, but FreeRTOS itself doesn't use anything outside of the hard wired Cortex-A9 cores so will run on any Zynq hardware.

If you have a hardware specification project, then you will be able to create a BSP for the standard parts of the hardware and IP in the SDK - then you can create a project that uses FreeRTOS and run it on the hardware as there are no dependencies on any other IP.

Regards.

Take an old USB cable, cut off the connector and solder it to the board.... Tape or ty-wrap to the board to stress relieve it....

Unfortunately, when the connector came off, it pulled a very thin layer of the pc board with it and there is nothing to solder to on the top. Under the spot where the connection goes through is the microSD card reader. Good idea, thank you.

Trace back the wire with a ohm meter, you will find a point on the board for the D+ and D- lines, other is Gnd and +5 (not needed if you have external power) or if a schematic is available use it to find the pins on the chip or where the series resistors are located... You should be able to fix this board in 30 min or less...
