Quick Start with the Dynamic Function eXchange Design Framework with Isolation Design Flow

The logiREF-DFX-IDF Design Framework can be downloaded as a cross-platform Java JAR self-extracting installer. Please make sure that you have a copy of the JRE (Java Runtime Environment) version 6 or higher on your system to run Java applications and applets. If you are using a Linux OS, it is advised to use JRE versions 6, 7 or 8 due to possible compatibility issues with higher versions.

Double-click on the installer's icon to run the self-installing executable to unpack and install the reference design on your PC. Setup your hardware in one of the four supported configurations, which are shown on the images below.

To enable rapid testing of the hardware setup, Xylon provides application demo binaries in the binaries folder of the deliverables.


To run the DFX Demo application, copy the content of the binaries/bin folder to the root folder of the formatted SD card. The SD card should be formatted as FAT32.


Optionally, you can use a serial terminal program (baud rate 115200 8N1) and the USB UART connection to the ZCU102 board to monitor the system’s operation during the boot and application execution.


For full explanation of the ZCU102’s features and settings, please check the documentation Xilinx XTP426.

Start the DFX Demo application and the display will show the video output from 4 attached cameras in 2x2 grid. Press following keys to control application:

· ‘d’ / KEY_RIGHT(SW17) = next mode

· ‘a’ / KEY_LEFT(SW14) = previous mode

· ‘q’ = quit application


In SINGLE_MODE press ‘t’ / KEY_ENTER(SW15) to toggle filter on current camera

In GRID_MODE press:

· ‘t’ = application prompts user to input number from 0 to 3 to toggle filter on that camera number

· KEY_ENTER(SW15) = application prompts user to input one of 4 other on board keys that correspond to camera numbers in the following manner:

o KEY_UP(SW18) - toggle filter on camera 0

o KEY_RIGHT(SW17) - toggle filter on camera 1

o KEY_DOWN(SW16) - toggle filter on camera 2

o KEY_LEFT(SW14) - toggle filter on camera 3
