After installing the logiREG-ZGPU-ZC706 reference design for Xilinx® ZC706 Development Kit, please use start.html file located in the installation root directory as a jump-start navigation page for exploring the reference design.

If you want to quickly run the precompiled graphics demo applications on your ZC706 kit, please copy contents of the software/ready-for-download/linux_sd directory to the root directory on the FAT32 formatted SD card, plug the SD card, connect the PC monitor and power-on the setup board.

For the most comfortable work with the precompiled Linux demos, Xylon recommends use of a keyboard and a mouse connected through an USB hub (can be passive) to the ZC706 board. You can also use reference design with no keyboard and run the majority of the provided demos by using on-board push-buttons.
