Cora-Z7-07S-Basic-IO Demo


This project is a Vivado demo using the Cora Z7-07S's RGB LED's and pushbuttons, written in Verilog. When programmed onto the board, the RGB LEDs will cycle from Blue to Green to Red to Black. As long as one of the two buttons is pushed, the corresponding RGB LED will be turned off.


Demo Setup

  1. Download and extract the most recent release ZIP archive from this repository's Releases Page.
  2. Open the project in Vivado 2018.2 by double clicking on the included XPR file found at "<archive extracted location>/vivado_proj/Cora-Z7-07S-Basic-IO.xpr".
  3. In the Flow Navigator panel on the left side of the Vivado window, click Open Hardware Manager.
  4. Plug the Cora-Z7-07S into the computer using a MicroUSB cable.
  5. In the green bar at the top of the Vivado window, click Open target. Select Auto connect from the drop down menu.
  6. In the green bar at the top of the Vivado window, click Program device.
  7. In the Program Device Wizard, enter "<archive extracted location>vivado_proj/Cora-Z7-07S-Basic-IO.runs/impl_1/top.bit" into the "Bitstream file" field. Then click Program.
  8. The demo will now be programmed onto the Cora-Z7-07S. See the Description section of this README to learn how to interact with this demo.

Next Steps

This demo can be used as a basis for other projects, either by adding sources included in the demo's release to those projects, or by modifying the sources in the release project.
