Once you have Vivado installed the next thing you will need to do is install the snickerdoodle board files. These files make it easy to create a snickerdoodle project by loading in several snickerdoode specific defaults. The board files can be downloaded or cloned here.
After pulling down the files, they need to be copied into the Vivado board directory. On my computer it was:
After placing the board files into the Vivado directory, start up Vivado and you should see the below screen.
Click on "Create Project" and then click on "Next" through the next couple of windows until you hit the window below.
This project is just a test to see if the snickerdoodle board files are recognized by Vivado, so I just used a simple test folder for the project. I will cover how to create your first blink project in the next blog post. After entering the path for the project, hit "Next" until you see the below screen.
Click on the "Boards" icon in the top left and you should see the vairous snickerdoodle development boards show up. Congratulations! You are ready to create your first blink project.
