low bandwidth PC <-> embedded linux communication protocol


hello community,

I bought myself a new development platform (zynq, A9 dual core + FPGA). I want to dig into FPGA development ASAP but I need to configure the PHY's on the board. For prototyping I'd normally send commands from PC to the board with a simple communication protocol to configure all peripheral devices.

I wonder how I would achieve this within a day? I am a beginner and am looking for a simple yet somewhat reliable communication.

What would be the development cycle for such task, can I do this with SSH, batch scripts or something?

thank you

I marvel that you, involved in engineering at some level, expect a reply after giving us no firm information whatsoever. If someone does reply, you should probably ignore it, as he won't know what he's talking about. I certainly don't.

In your thread over here hello, you say that you are an FPGA developer. Therefore my assumption is that you already know how common ways to talk to an FPGA dev platform. And considering that it is an already fully integrated development platform, then Xilinx has already provided a sample kernel and examples how to talk to the FPGA. Suggest you review the documentation for that devkit and also see if they have a website where you can ask platform specific questions. That's really your best bet to get started. You can customize once you learn their conventions, however I'd stay within their examples for now.
