+Digilent Zybo
+=============
+
+This is the Buildroot board support for the Digilent Zybo. The Zybo is
+a development board based on the Xilinx Zynq-7000 based All-Programmable
+System-On-Chip.
+
+Zybo information including schematics, reference designs, and manuals are
+available from http://store.digilentinc.com/zybo-zynq-7000-arm-fpga-soc-trainer-board/ .
+
+If you want a custom FPGA bitstream to be loaded by U-Boot, copy it as
+system.bit in board/digilent/zybo/.
+
+Steps to create a working system for Zybo:
+
+1) make zynq_zybo_defconfig
+2) make
+3) write your SD Card with the sdcard.img file using dd by doing
+ $ sudo dd if=output/images/sdcard.img of=/dev/sdX
+4) insert the SD Card and power up your Zybo
+5) Expect serial console on the second USB serial port exposed by the board
+
+The expected output:
+
+ U-Boot SPL 2016.05 (May 20 2016 - 16:16:24)
+ mmc boot

+
+Resulting system
+----------------
+Once the build process is finished you will have an image called "sdcard.img"
+in the output/images/ directory.
+
+The first partition is a FAT32 partition created at the beginning of the SD Card
+that contains the following files :
+ /BOOT.BIN
+ /zynq-zybo.dtb
+ /uEnv.txt
+ /system.bit
+ /uImage
+ /u-boot-dtb.img
+
+The second partition is an ext4 partition that contains the root filesystem.
+
+You can alter the booting procedure by modifying the uEnv.txt file
+in first partition of the SD card. It is a plain text file in format
+<key>=<value> one per line:
+
+kernel_image=myimage
+modeboot=myboot
+myboot=...
