Command Line 2019.1 Xilinx FSBL Rebuild and Test


This post demonstrates how to create and build a 2019.1 FSBL from the command line, package it Into a BOOT.BIN and run it on a ZCU102, then boot the FSBL over JTAG after adding a "Hello, World!" line.


Assumptions


A built 2019.1 ZCU102 BSP exists

2019.1 Xiinx SDK is installed

# A lightweight Xilinx SDK installer is at https://www.xilinx.com/member/forms/download/xef.html?filename=Xilinx_SDK_2019.1_0524_1430_Lin64.bin

# To install the 2019.1 XSDK run:

chmod +x ~/Downloads/Xilinx_SDK_2019.1_0524_1430_Lin64.bin

~/Downloads/Xilinx_SDK_2019.1_0524_1430_Lin64.bin

# Installed to:

~/xsdk/



Create and Build a 2019.1 FSBL From the Command Line


# Open a terminal and run

PATH=~/xsdk/SDK/2019.1/bin/:$PATH

WS=~/plxprjs/fsbl-2019.1

HDF=~/plxprjs/xilinx-zcu102-2019.1/project-spec/hw-description/system.hdf


# Create the workspace directory

mkdir -p $WS


# Create HW from the HDF

xsct -eval "setws $WS; createhw -name hw0 -hwspec $HDF"


# Create the FSBL

xsct -eval "setws $WS; createapp -name fsbl -app {Zynq MP FSBL} -proc psu_cortexa53_0 -hwproject hw0 -os standalone"


# Build the FSBL

xsct -eval "setws $WS; projects -build"


# Find it

find $WS/ -name "*.elf"

# Example output

# /home/demo/plxprjs/fsbl-2019.1/fsbl/Debug/fsbl.elf



Package it Into a BOOT.BIN and Run it On a ZCU102


# Package it:

# Run inside a petalinux project:

petalinux-package --boot --u-boot --dtb --fsbl /home/demo/plxprjs/fsbl-2019.1/fsbl/Debug/fsbl.elf --force


# Copy to an SD Card:

cp images/linux/BOOT.BIN /media/demo/BDFD-EDD6/


# Change ZCU102 to SD1 LS (3.0) boot mode


# Start screen to see the output

screen /dev/ttyUSB0 115200

# Use Ctrl-a d to quit


# Boot

# You should see when you built this

# Xilinx Zynq MP First Stage Boot Loader

# Release 2019.1 Sep 6 2021 - 13:21:07



Boot Using JTAG


# Power off the ZCU102

# Change ZCU102 to PS JTAG Mode



# Plug in the USB to JTAG cable


# From ~/plxprjs/xilinx-zcu102-2019.1

petalinux-boot --jtag --u-boot -v


# Copy the output, save it as:

# ~/plxprjs/xilinx-zcu102-2019.1/boot_u-boot.tcl


# Update the path to the FSBL elf in boot_u-boot.tcl to:

# ~/plxprjs/fsbl-2019.1/fsbl/Debug/fsbl.elf


# Open XSCT

PATH=~/xsdk/SDK/2019.1/bin/:$PATH

xsct


# Run in xsct:

connect

targets


# Run

source ~/plxprjs/xilinx-zcu102-2019.1/boot_u-boot.tcl


# Make a change in the FSBL code:

vi +364 ~/plxprjs/fsbl-2019.1/fsbl/src/xfsbl_main.c


# Add Hello, World! after Xilinx Zynq MP First Stage Boot


XFsbl_Printf(DEBUG_PRINT_ALWAYS,

"Xilinx Zynq MP First Stage Boot Loader \n\r");

XFsbl_Printf(DEBUG_PRINT_ALWAYS,

"Hello, World! \n\r");


# Build it:

xsct -eval "setws $WS; projects -build"


# Power on the ZCU102 in JTAG bode

# Run in xsct:

connect

targets

source ~/plxprjs/xilinx-zcu102-2019.1/boot_u-boot.tcl


# You should now see:

Xilinx Zynq MP First Stage Boot Loader

Hello, World!

Release 2019.1 Sep 6 2021 - 13:54:48
